Horrible first draft" is not intended to be self depreciating at all - sometimes people I am writing with or speaking to about the ideas in the book jump in and try to tell me not to say that but the reason I do so is to remind myself that this is the stage where I get the story down in words. It isn't the stage where the words have to be awesome - they don't have to be. They just need to tell the story. So it is the horrible first draft now - it will be rewritten and edited and prettified later.
On January 1st I started a new project. I was going to write a new book and get Sedition edited and you got to watch while I wrote. And I told you that I was setting up a Patreon account for those who wanted to donate towards editing fees for Sedition by letting them see the drafts of HIM as I wrote HIM.
