I love rewrites. They have a kind of snowball momentum for me, once I start then new ideas come and I pick up momentum as I go along. Rewriting draft five (might be six, I can’t remember) of the Fela Wives play. I found the last two drafts quite hard going and when I re-read the piece recently I felt it was going to be quite hard going overall but so far it is proving not to be. See this link here on writers talking about rewriting. I love the Hemingway quote.
For me every piece is always about ‘another two drafts’ away! Ha
