These days, writers typically work with just one draft of their manuscript, which puts more pressure on the first draft to be as complete as possible. Screenwriter, playwright, and author Art Holcomb suggests that writers give themselves permission to put EVERYTHING into the first draft. It should be written without deleting or editing and provide a foundation of materials on which to build the story. Trying to create while also trying to refine or edit will usually lead to writer's block, or to an incomplete story line.
Much food for thought to put into first draft. I must refrain from trying to edit as I go along. Thank you so much for your valuable input!
Thank you for making this video. It has been such wonderful tool. I watch it just to remind myself of no second guessing.
i thought that putting all my ideas down and making drawings was too much for first draft. Thank you for encouraging me to see that I was on a good track and will do more for my first drafts from now on. I like the idea to do more the first time around, saves time later.
Very informative thank you
Thank you for your substance about how more is better and then to eliminate. It makes sense rather than adding as a 2nd thought. Russell
