“The first draft is just you telling yourself a story.” — Terry Pratchett
What a wonderful man and wonderful writer. I’m currently re-reading The Wee Free Men, and I’m realizing what an important impact Mr. Pratchett has had on my life and work so far. I don’t write anything like he does, but the way he writes feelings with such mastery is something I try to accomplish whenever I sit down to type out my paltry few words. If you don’t understand what I’m saying, just go read The Wee Free Men (and possibly all the other Discworld books) and you’ll see what I mean.
