I am working on pieces of my vampire series that I am pretty damn sure will not end up in the novel. Some writers would say that I am wasting my time with it, because I am not working on the direct novel.
However there are pieces that will end up in the novel. . . they are essential for my character and the story line. . . the piece I am working on is like a blog and outline for my character.
I know there important part of the first draft is to get the story written. . . to get the idea out of the head and on the screen. . .
So is it better to over write and cut later or just write basics and add later?
I guess it depends on the writer. . .
