From Start to Finish

leave a comment »

A couple months ago, I wrote about doing a series on the process of writing a story, posting at least a portion of the story here and tracking its evolution from rough draft to final. 

I finished the rough draft weeks ago, actually, but only got around to showing it off for feedback this week.  I am still not sure if I’ll ever publish it—I’ll have to wait and see how subsequent drafts turn out.  But as far as doing a thing on its evolution, I see no problem.  I’m just trying to figure out the best way to present it with the least amount of hassle for both you and for me. 

I have procured a cheap .pdf converter, and though it isn’t Adobe, I am told it is at least compatible.  But, having had my heart broken over those words before, I remain cautious.  So, hopefully I’ll have the rough draft of the story—untitled, thus far—posted by the weekend.  All you aspiring writers out there may then see just how bad a rough draft can read, and then rejoice, for I am sure yours are far better than mine.
