So I do my first drafts long-hand on legal pads, then type from that (first and second draft done) thanks to a seminar I took with Heather Sellers at Far Field Writer’s Conference at Oakland University a few years back. Then I go back and chapter it out, make final changes and synopsize. I’m working on a new contemporary romance and tossed out a whole legal pad by accident. What are the chances they were they the best words I ever wrote? #firstworldproblems.
