I can tell you now I’m in rewriting mode – but they would call this a pre write. I call it infinity draft. They forget to tell you that you never write it on the first go – that your 90k fictional thesis is crap and needs an overhaul.
They don’t include this in Author training because they don’t want to scare you.
Or do they?
They don’t intend to. They are looking after you like a project worth dollar signs.
If you are different- they don’t want you right away. They want you to work for it. I’m sure this isn’t an offensive statement- but sometimes companies don’t even give a shit.
Life has its ups and downs- but two cents in between writer and artist modes is all I can offer…
