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?
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.
