In my experience there are different types of first drafts:
The Gushing First Draft. There are stories which will quite simply gush out of you. Words will pour onto the page and before you know it there will be a rough manuscript staring back at you. If you are reading this and are new to writing please don’t think experiencing a first draft, like this, means you miss out on literary pain. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but every story brings with it a quota of creative suffering, if you don’t go through it on your first draft you will go through it in later stages.
