Neil Strauss on the Three Drafts

Whatever you think of the two blokes having the chat, this is an insightful little number from Neil Strauss about the different drafts of a book/article/etc that he’ll write. (found in this conversation).

  1. First draft is for me. Just get it out.
  2. Second draft is for the reader. Focus, clarity, cutting out the darlings, etc.
  3. Third draft is for the haters. What objections will they bring that I can preemptively address?
