You must write freely and try to find the best way to communicate your ideas. Sign up.
That means you need intermediate goals for each stage. It is fair to say, for a working writer, that the drafting process, often full of discovery, is the most like play.
Write neatly and legibly! You are finally finished! It is the stage where plot problems are addressed, inconsistencies are ironed out and characters are culled or amalgamated.
This draft tends to be writer-centered: it is you telling yourself what you know and think about the topic.
