Finding your personal writing process is essential to building a writing life you love.
And this includes the method that helps you craft your best first drafts. Traditionally, writers outline their stories, then use that outline to guide them as they draft their idea in full. But what if this method doesn’t work well for you?
Good news! Today, I’m sharing three alternative drafting techniques that might just revolutionize your writing process. One for writers who end up cutting half of their first drafts during revision, one for writers who often diverge from their outlines as they write, and one for writers who don't enjoy the drafting process.
