I’ll start by saying that I’ve written a lot of first drafts of novels over the years. Probably more than I can count. Certainly more than I can find in my less than adequate filing system. I’ll come across hand-written notes of a story I wrote so long ago that it may as well have been written by another person. Some of the stuff even seems a little bit good.
