Today I have a question for all you writer-types out there. I'm in the process of writing the first draft of a novel, and it got me wondering about the what the writing process is like for other writers.
For instance, as you write a first draft do you tend to over-write and then go back and cut when you start the editing process? Or are you brief and then go back and flesh out the story as you start the editing process?
So far I've found that I tend to be brief but when I go back and reread segments I can see where I need to add more to make the story richer.
Which works best for you?
