One of my favourite authors Maggie Stiefvater (author of the Mercy Falls trilogy and her latest book, The Scorpio Races) has shared a very insightful and detailed explanation of her thought process as she crafts a scene. It’s one of the most helpful, useful blog posts I’ve read, so I really must share it.
It also made me realise how much of your original writing you get to keep, and how much you have to edit. Plus, it made me understand how much work I have cut out for me to reach her standard. Many thanks again to Maggie for sharing!
