I write a morning piece almost everyday. Some of them I draft here in the WordPress window, hammering pieces out in 10 minutes.
But for the last 3 days (make that 4), I’ve been struggling with a piece of 600 words. I’m on to the 7th draft, and after feedback from quite a few non-writing, and a few writing buddies, I think I might just be nearing the final draft.
I wrote the first piece in 10 minutes, then realised the plot was unclear. Once I had juggled the plot and the character into place, I lost the heartbeat of the first draft. So, it was back to the drawing-board, of course.
Now, waiting for the verdict with bated breath: my latest and most favourite/ useful reader is going through the piece as we speak..erm..as I blog.
Wish I could have posted it here and thrown it open for opinions, but alas, that is no to be.
Send me some luck, folks. Maybe a few prayers, a shot of tequila?
