What I always forget about drafting

It's always difficult to adjust to the messiness of a first draft: its tangents and sketchiness, its incompleteness, its redundancies, the parts that will need to be deepened and the parts that will need to be lopped off. But if a bowl of raw batter can become a cake and an acorn can become an oak, I guess I can manage to turn this fragmentary collection of scenes into a book.
