A is For Abracadabra!



I have invented a magic wand. It makes the best peanut-butter chocolate brownies ever (calorie free, of course) AND gives you the choice of either magically finishing that pesky first draft of your WIP or revising it to a spit-polished shine.

But you can only choose one. (The brownies are on the house).

I detest first drafts (although I'm still enjoying my current one and am on the home stretch), but I love revising so I'm going with the First Draft Wand.

Which do you choose?

Well, this is an easy call for me, as I'm allergic to peanuts! Now if they were just regular fudge brownies, that might be tough...

What I wouldn't give for a magic wand to magically revise my ms...

Jennifer- Fudge brownies are easy--consider it done! The revisions might be a bit trickier. :)

Hi, I've just been over to Jennifer's and saw you there, so here I am.

I need a guide here - I'll go with you, whichever one you follow.

Oh, definitly the bright-and-polished revision wand please. And congrats on ABNA too!

I could do with a magic wand too I would use mine to help me get through the last days of this school year. I am a teacher too and we are on the home stretch.! I need the wand to help me wake up every morning :)

First draft wand, all the way! (Mmmmmm brownies!)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Ooo, I'd like a revising wand, but what is the magical cost (there's always a price to pay!)

Amalia T. said...

Neither!
Can I choose to use it to magically find the right agent at the right time instead? I love writing and revising both too much to give them up :)

I actually like first drafts so I'd need the Revision Wand. I'll definitely take those brownies!

Court Ellyn said...

Ack! First Draft Wand, no doubt.

When I'm writing new stuff, I procrastinate. If I'm in full-on edit mode, good luck getting me away from the keyboard. It's no contest: First Draft Wand all the way.

I'll send you my mailing address.

Hmmm... I hate revision, but I also don't really believe in revision much anyway. I guess I'll take the First Draft Wand. And the brownies. Yum.

Cheree said...

Ooh, I definitely have to go with the first draft. I'm always starting projects, but need to work on finishing them.

I'll take the first draft wand too but does it also work on taking the calories out of the brownies?
