This morning I read the words of crime writer Val McDermid, in The Age:
Q: What's the scariest place in the process of writing a book? Is it before you start? When it's published? When you get stuck in the middle?A: When I finish the first draft. There's that depressing moment of knowing this is as good as I can get it and that it's just not good enough.
Well, amen to that, Val.
