This is one of those horses for courses questions, what suits you might not suit me, perhaps different occasions call for a different approach.
I’d like to collect thoughts, gather experience, receive some received opinions.
When we sit down to write every day, as we do (every day) do we either:
a) start from the beginning of the piece, read through it and edit and then continue where we left off, polishing as we go?
Or, do we:
b) start where we left off yesterday, plough on and get as many pages written as possible and finish it before we go back and edit a word?
Obviously there’s no right or wrong way, but maybe there is. And I want to know what it is.
[PS This blog is by no means a diversionary tactic from actually doing writing. In a way this is writing.]
