I saw something neat today. Neat enough I’ll someday try to steal its neatness for something else. It’ll resemble what I saw today in the first draft. Less in the second, maybe moved around a bit, foreshadowed differently, implied as opposed to shown, maybe just plain old exposition or anecdotal reselling. But it’ll still be there. Third draft it’ll be gone. The tone or mood created will be there, exaggerated. In the fourth draft, it’ll be sanded down, seamless. Maybe I’ll have forgotten the neat thing I saw today.
