To be honest, I think it’s a little silly how us writers take one large project and divide it into mini sections. I can see why we do it, thought. By breaking it down, it makes the project more doable. We can communicate easier on which part of the writing process we are at.
“Oh, you’re in the proofreading stage too? Nice!”
As I was working on my book last night, and nearing the end, a thought crossed my mind:
where’s the cutoff?
At what point do I pause and say, “Okay, I’m finally in the next stage.”?
Currently I have reached nearly the end of my story, but so many plot holes and pieces are needed. Will going back and filling them be considered editing?
At what point do I finally finish the first draft?

This is a short post. In fact, this is my last post before I finally finish my first draft (I think, lol)! Because this is a special time for me, I’d like to keep my mind fresh from giving writing advice, and taking some instead.
I’d love to hear all of your opinions on when the first draft is actually finished!
Can’t wait to see your answers 😉
