The Drafts Your Novel Needs (and Why You Probably Won’t Use a Single Word of Your First Draft!) – ProWritingAid

I feel joy! There is hope for me! Great information about how many drafts your novel needs! ❤

The way I draft is an extension of the way I approach novel planning as a whole – which is to start with a simple concept and then add more and more detail until I have a fairly comprehensive outline.With drafting that means starting with a rough outline and slowly fleshing it out and adding detail, tweaking, and weaving until it is finished, polished prose. I try to approach each draft with different priorities in mind so I can focus on tackling particular elements of story-telling at each stage while setting aside other aspects for later so I don’t get bogged down trying to do too much at once.In this article, I give details about the objective I assign to each draft, how I prepare for that draft (i.e. what I do in advance) and then the technique I use when actually writing it. I’ve also added a very rough guide to projected timescales and a bullet point summary of each stage.
