What do you find easier: writing or rewriting? For me it's the rewriting. I like nothing more than tearing into the previous day's work, pulling it apart and making improvements. It's a forensic process and extremely cathartic. Every time I sit down to write I find that my impulse is to rewrite first and then move onto something fresh.
This may be counter-productive. It may explain my slow progress. I think though that I will end up with a very tight third draft.
I also find that when I'm writing something fresh I get some good forward momentum, but I'm never happy when I read over the material the following day. So out comes the red editing pen and I reshape and revise until I feel confident with what is on the page.
I'd love to hear your views on this. What comes most naturally to you: writing or rewriting? What tips do you have to share?
