Like any craftsman, a writer begins with a perfectly pictured, completed thing in their head. Hammering out the first draft tends to be the most fun part. But tweaking it, adjusting the flow and word choices, these help reveal the pure message from my heart. It's like carpentry or sculpting. There's a perfect object hidden within the mistakes. It's that attitude that carries me through the rough patches during the editing stage.
