“As long as I’m in confessional mode, here’s another thing that makes first-drafting difficult for me: knowing where the story is going. This is something a lot of writers struggle with, especially new ones.

And with how high stress is in my life right now, those dumb little things are not worth the energy.

You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.
And not that Denny’s. Let’s go to the good one across town.
