Author Advice – First drafts

There is a famous saying – everyone’s first draft is rubbish. It’s true. Even the greatest authors in the world will not write a perfect narrative first time round. Whether you type on a computer, or write by hand – let the story guide you. Don’t worry about the mistakes that inevitably will be there.

The flow of the story is more important.

Whether your first draft be on a notepad and pen (my preferred way of writing) or on the computer, don’t think you need to have it perfect first time.

Worry about the edits later.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
