Which part of the writing process (condensed as it is into such a short period) do you find the hardest? The editing? Re-writing?
Because the writing process is condensed into such a short period with this project, editing and re-writing don’t actually get a look in. Not yet, anyway. The plan was to leave all the drafts for a minimum of 3 months before going back to look over them, but so far I haven’t had the time to go back and start editing any. The hardest part of the writing process with this is therefore the purely practical aspect of fitting in writing time – when I sit down and do it, it’s a race against time to get the words out there so I just write and write, even if some of it’s nonsense. These first drafts are littered with asides like “she said, by way of exposition,” which all add to the word count! But generally speaking I think editing and re-writing are much harder work.
I’ve had a lot of support from other people though, especially on Twitter. The general consensus seems to be that it’s a slightly mad thing to do, but in a good way!
