Reading a book called "revision and self-editing" by James Scott Bell i stumbled upon an interesting theory: "there are two kinds of writers: Taker-outters and Putter-inners. Some writers like to write a lean first draft, sometimes leaving out whole sections of description or the transition, and then add to the manuscript during the revision stage. These are putter-inners. Other writers prefer to write and write and write that first draft, to put everything in they can think of and only worry about cutting back later. Either approach will work, but usually the writer will feel more comfortable doing one or the other. Are you the sort of writer who is anxious to get the manuscript finished as quickly as possible? You might be a putter-inner. Are you are writer who likes to discover the story as you go along, following different tangents as they arise? Then you are probably a taker-outter." I found this interesting, especially because i so recognize myself in the putter-inners category, I write REALLY lean first drafts and only when finished I start adding the stuff missing out. Which category do you belong to? I would recommend this book to everyone working on a novel because there is so much to learn here.
