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