Never, Ever Put Down a Story in the Middle of a Draft

I should just repeat the title for the rest of this post. I’ve been treading water for a week trying to get back into an edit I dropped for a while–the edit I was working for Nanoedmo, no less, which means I’ve already invested a fair bit of blood, sweat, and tears into this thing. It’s great to put a story down between drafts, but murder to put it down during a draft. Add to this that my current writing struggle is to find a method for editing that works for me. I know how to white-knuckle my way to the end of a first draft, but white-knuckling to the end of a second, as I’m trying to do here, is proving to be a formidable task.
