Lately I find myself thinking about second drafts and awful first drafts and what it takes to pull a decent manuscript out of this kind of mess. (My first drafts are usually very messy, despite the fact that I'm an outline person at heart.)
So that's my question today. Are your first drafts messy or cohesive? And once the initial draft is done, how do you go about revising it?
