How writing a first draft is like holding your breath under water

Interested in how the writing process works for at least two of us writers?

Read this blog post my writer friend, Beth Shope, wrote after a conversation we had about what it's like for both of us writing our first drafts.

And the mysterious, wonderful transformation that happens once the words are on the page.

  2. Beth, it's great to have finally hit on the right one.
