"No, that's not right."
"What does that even MEAN?"
"That would sound better phrased differently."
I'm sure you've all been there, but I'm back in that mysterious world called FIRST DRAFT. It's been awhile, I'm trying to get used to it again. Any advice?
I'm not generally a perfectionist, but one of my friends read the first draft I had scribbled out, and his first comment was, "It looks like an English teacher went to town on this."
What about you? Any troubles with first drafts? Especially when you're just getting started?
