According to author Dani Shapiro, a writer’s raw material is not the blank page, but the rough draft. Yet many writers lose momentum when it comes time to revise. What’s worse, these writers often feel guilty that they haven’t completed or published their creative projects . . . already!
Look: it’s worthy work to turn a rough draft into a realized dream, but this work can also be challenging. It requires a fresh voice, technical mastery of craft elements, and a healthy dose of reverence for your creative process.
