Final decisions...

“I love watching as the story builds – a sentence that confirms it’s going to be story, an idea for the title, a burst of dialogue that makes the characters seem familiar, or unfamiliar, or interesting – brings them to life.

“The more painstaking editing – third and fourth drafts – I find very hard; the final decisions."

Roddy Doyle in The Manchester Review
