Creating a Text – Peggy Payne
What phases are involved in the creation of a text?
I alternate drafts of two types. First, the let-it-pour, fast, intuitive draft. Then the pore-over-it, thoughtful revision.
Then the alternation again. And again…. It takes me a lot of drafts to get there, with both my novels and narrative nonfiction.
My books have to do with spirituality and quirky psychology; I always want to go as deep as I can.
