First Drafts

This week I started working on a new novel. It's been over a year since I've put fresh ink on paper, so to speak. Each morning I ask, "How do I do this again?".

"One word at a time, until you get at least 250 of them." I answer.

The story is moving along, but I can't seem to turn off the revision/editor part of my brain. I'm not sure I need to turn it off, just maybe turn it down.

What about you? Are your first drafts super rough, or do you edit as you go?

WHAT I'M READING THIS WEEK: Loose Threads and Hold Me Tight (Lorie Ann Grover) Very Valentine(Adriana Trigiani)
