I read my first drafts so you don’t have to. Those paragraphs I wrote last year seemed like a good idea at the time. But now that I’m starting in on my second draft and have a much clearer sense of the characters and the story, much of what I had to say then seems at best unfocused and sometimes, well, just plain bad.
But not to worry! It’s getting better day by day. And before you know it, it’ll be perfect!
