Friday Feast: Vomit Drafts, F Words, Introvert Laments, Lessons Before Writing, and World History Plot Holes

There’s nothing like a first draft — whether it’s your 1st first draft or your 10th — to make you feel like an amateur, or a diner at a restaurant that consistently receives one-star reviews on Yelp. It’s easy to picture your novel’s own one-star review on Goodreads.

Thank goodness for revision and the advice of other authors to remind us that the road to publishing is well-traveled and littered with dead drafts that may one day spring to life and make you less likely to gag.
