Have I Mentioned How Much I Like Quotes?

"The research is the easiest.  The outline is the most fun.  The first draft is the hardest, because every word of the outline has to be fleshed out.  The rewrite is very satisfying."  -Ken Follett

I'm with you, Ken.  I'm with you.

Anyone else with him?


  1. Wow. This is Ken Follett, who writes books that can kill people they are so heavy.

  2. I'd also say my first revision is excruciating because I have to clean up all my mess from my often frenzied first draft. But subsequent revisions are very satisfying! :-)

  3. Amie, that's awesome. I hope you mean literally heavy. As in, enormous.

    SP, I can definitely relate to that. :)
