I laughed because the night before, Bethany and I had this conversation:
B: Some writers' first drafts are massive. They have to cut their word count in half when they revise.
Me: I think you and I are the opposite. We write the bones, then flesh them out with subsequent drafts.
B: I agree!
Me: So while our first draft is like a skeleton, other people's are more like a really chubby person that needs to go on a diet.
(Copious laughter ensues.)
So which kind of writer are you, SKINNY or FAT? And is there a middle ground?
