What is the date you began writing this piece of fiction and the date when you completely finished the piece of fiction? I started this novel about ten years ago, but there was a long stretch when I lost confidence and put the manuscript aside to work on something else. Usually, it’s hard to reenter work that’s been abandoned. But in this case, as soon as I picked up the pages, I knew I had to keep going.
What were your writing habits while writing this work- did you drink something as you wrote, listen to music, write in pen and paper, directly on laptop; specific time of day? I’m a morning person, not one of those super-efficient, waking up at 5:00 AM writers, but someone who tries to write before plugging into a world of tasks and responsibilities.
Were there any deletions from this excerpt that you can share with us? And can you please include a photo of your marked up rough drafts of this excerpt. I scribble up my drafts in crazy ways with letters and numbers and arrows. Alas, I don’t think I have any existing versions of this scene.
Anything you would like to add? Thank you for keeping this site going and for being a reader.
