“When it comes to writing, I’m a rule freak, I’m a outline freak. I like structure. I will outline for way [longer]. Once I’m writing, I’m a fairly fast writer. I’m very confident in putting out a completely garbage first draft. I think that is one of my strengths. I don’t get afraid at all about bad pages…. I vomit this garbage out because I am much better at editing.”
