    As Jonathan Mahler recounts in his Times article on Hohoff, she thought the strongest aspect of Lee's novel was the flashback sequences featuring a young Scout, and thus requested that Lee use those flashbacks as a basis for a new novel. Fear of losing hope, the dream. There was a time when I made a number of handwritten drafts. He hoped that she would stand for what she thinks is right.

    When she says she can now stand them, he tells her it is bearable because she is her own person. There are no magic bullets, no quick fixes, no secret handshakes that can get you over the finishing line. Sometimes it is tinged with nostalgia - his description of the Doon School, for instance, and at other times, it is an objective view of the various decisions and BG Verghese' "First Draft" is part memoir, part history and covers many decades in its wide sweep. Information disorder is complex. Trying to make it perfect as I went along instead of surrendering to the process knowing that it was only the first draft and merely stage 1 of the entire novel-writing adventure.

    It features the character known as Scout as an adult woman and I thought it a pretty decent effort. Nothing happens without a first draft. Smile at the latter, get to work on the former. It makes it an incredibly strong, compelling structure upon which you can build complex characters, or subplots, twists, or beautiful writing. Although I enjoy writing it was not something I was naturally very good at. Like any good writing prompt, it gets your hands moving and the words onto the page.

The first draft book

Jean Louise finds a pamphlet titled "The Black Plague" among her father's papers. Later, upon learning in the middle of of the existence of a second novel at a family gathering, she then re-examined Lee's safe-deposit box and found the manuscript for Go Set a Watchman.

How much does professional editing cost? For the first pages it lacks anything that could even charitably be described as a plot. Having other people expect your routine updates, as well as having other people to discuss issues and setbacks, will help to keep you on track with a writing schedule.

Here are three things you can do to move it along: Write down what your book or story is about. Before you start writing your book, write the main idea of your story in a few sentences and share it with friends.

This is one simple method to force yourself to keep going rather than correcting continuously. If you want more information on the publishing expenses you can expect, check out the video below—and the biggest cost might be the most surprising.

Some of it could be described as low-level information pollution — clickbait headlines, sloppy captions or satire that fools — but some of it is sophisticated and deeply deceptive. Writing a first draft is hard, and it is tempting to take the easy route and quit writing.

You can find beta readers from your existing audience, or seek them out in writers groups online. Jean Louise returns to the office and makes a date with Henry for the evening. Then I make more corrections.

This is your first try, what my friend Marion calls the “vomit draft.” It’s where you get all your ideas on paper or screen or whatever.
