I'm just curious about how everyone drafts their work. How many drafts of a piece do you do? If it's a novel, do you complete each draft before moving on to the next? I'm currently working on the final draft of a novel (third draft). I reworked each chapter separately this time, which was a good strategy for the first novel I wrote but not so much for this one...it gave me time to perfect each chapter and not rush through the storyline. In my second novel, I ended up throwing out the first 60 000 words of a 160 000 word project and am currently redoing them!
