The 5 Stages of Not Ditching Your Draft Novel #Writers #Amwriting

I love this blog, not least because I find myself relating to almost every post. I remember the first draft of my first Sophie Morgan book and thought this isn’t right, it doesn’t work. Then I took a break and after some time out things fell into place and after around the third draft I had something I was really happy with. I’ve also many failed starts to other books. Some of these won’t ever be finished, some probably just need time to grow and develop, others might be fodder for completely new projects. The emotional journey of finishing that draft and realising that it isn’t where it needs to be is something I suspect all writers can relate to.
