Write with your heart.
Even though I wrote the first draft of my novel in one month (thanks to NaNoWriMo), I poured my heart into every aspect of the draft. So much so, that I feel a sense of hollowness in my heart. I wrote passionately and feverishly all month long; emptying the story I’ve been holding inside me for years.
Nonetheless, I’m forcing myself to take this week off to mentally prepare for writing the second draft. That’s when I’ll rewrite with my head.
