So I just finished critiquing a story for a friend, and it amazes me how amazing some writers are. In just one or two drafts, they have such a tender, touching tale that I just can't put down! I, on the other hand, struggle hopelessly trying to get through a rough draft because I want it to be perfect, then go over it again and realize I have a million problems that need to be fixed in a second draft, and then a third, and so on. I've discovered it's easier for me to write revisions. Then I have the general plot-line down, and I can just make the various changes I need then.
In any case, congratulations to my lovely friend on her amazing accomplishment! Well done!
Fare thee well, friend!
