The process I have developed over the last ten years is :
2. First Draft
3. Second Draft
4. Third Draft
If I’m really lucky, I then get the chance to work with a publisher to turn the book I have written, into the one they want to publish. Whoever knew I was going to be published in German first?
It suddenly dawned on me that I didn’t know how to construct a plot or a story. I only knew how to enjoy writing. Over the next two years, I taught myself plot, structure and planning and it changed my life forever.
Over the next few blog posts I am going to share my writing process with you, so get a hint of what it is like to write the way I do.
