This year at Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils my theme is “this year I am writing a novel.” So, in light of that I decided to try and keep to the theme a bit with my A to Z topic. I decided on using writing words that start with each letter of the alphabet to create short posts.
D – Draft
Google defines draft as a noun, “A preliminary version of a piece of writing.”
Preparations are underway. A small sharpened pile of 2HB pencils sit beside a small stack of full lined paper. No need for erasers, a scratch line through unneeded letters, words, sentences or punctuation will work nicely. With a mug of hot coffee in hand the eager author settles into the chair pulled up to the long old desk. The sun is lightly colouring the horizon as the first draft starts to take form.
