Trevor Incogneato asked Jeff VanderMeer:

Hi Jeff! Do you find that it takes less effort now, as an experienced writer, to bridge the gap between a rough draft and a final? Aside from that, do you feel that writing has gotten easier for you as time goes on?

Jeff VanderMeer It becomes easier in the sense that you know you can finish a novel--repeatedly. But it becomes harder in that you learn more and more ways to write a novel and you can get frozen figuring out which is best. When you only know one way, it's easier in a strange sense. Also, I don't like to write the same novel twice, so every time I'm also starting out from scratch.
