Elle Griffin’s writing rituals

Elle Griffin:

Let it be known that I have never read another book or essay about how to write” since then—I’m too afraid of trying to adhere to someone else’s process instead of trusting my own. To write Obscurity, I wrote one chapter until I got it perfect, then I wrote another chapter until I got it perfect—by the time my manuscript was done, it was done. I only had to do some minor restructuring at the end.

I’m still figuring out what works for me. But I haven’t given up yet.
