Every writer’s process is a little different. Some writers plan everything out in advance while others fly by the seat of their pants as they draft, and you can find a writer that falls everywhere in between. Some writers edit and correct and adjust as they go. Others get the entire story out in a single draft and then go back and revise, rewrite, cut, and add. Some keep working on a single project from draft to final manuscript all in one go. Others jump from project to project.
I try to reflect on my own process periodically so that I can see what’s working and where I might need to try something new. Sometimes it’s worth moving yourself along any of the various process spectrums until you’re in a little different place. Sometimes, this is a disaster and doesn’t help anything. Sometimes it’s miraculous and suddenly increases your productivity. And sometimes, you just have to do what you have to do.
