Writing Process

Terry McMillan signs books in Albuquerque

Last night I had the pleasure of listening to Terry McMillan talk about her new book Who Asked You? She described her writing process as not so much about the words on a computer screen as a rhythm. She completes a first draft of the entire book before she goes back with an editor’s eye and thinks about the words.

One Response to Writing Process

  1. Edwin Jeter says:

    A writing process must be aggressively adopted by every writer. Because it’s necessary, the process is a tool needed for successful writing. A plan is an integral component related to writing, and it is part of the writing process. Without proper planning the writer will be lost and has nothing to follow.
