>I could do this every night

I sat so close to him, I thought I’d need a paper bag. Alex and Alana encouraged me to ask my question. I felt like a schoolgirl, which I guess I am. I asked him if he enjoyed the process of writing. I guess I wanted to hear him say that he dreaded it, avoided it, ran from it, and his nights were sleepless, but in the end, nothing gave him the same kind of satisfaction as when the pieces of a story finally come together. Instead, he mostly said that the first draft gives him tons of anxiety, but the pleasure comes from rewriting and revising.
