So, how do you write? For example, in the first draft, when you're writing a chapter, do you try to make it as close to perfect as possible? Do you try to write a version that would be somewhat close to the final draft, with the dialogues, the inner thoughts of the characters, the details and descriptions of what they wear and how they fight or hug or kiss? Or, do you just write a general description "and then Max meets Jane, and then they talk about WWII and then he kisses her." and then just wait for when the novel or large chunks of it are done before you return to that chapter and write in more detail? That's how I used to write papers for uni. Just have a flawed rough draft with titles of chapters and information inside, and then return to it and edit the crap out of everything. Sort of like drawing with your pencil and only when you're done coloring it. But when I write fiction, I tend to do the first one, of focusing a lot in each chapter I'm in, researching as I write, trying to make that chapter be at least 90% of what I imagine the final draft to be. I ask these questions because I never learned how to write professionally, and some of you have eluded that I might be doing it wrong.
