A draft that feels like a dud can also feel like a total waste of your precious time and energy.
Mackenzie Belcastro assures you that it isn’t and also that you can certainly salvage it.
She believes, like F. Scott Fitzgerald, that we all have a handful of life-changing moments that inspire our “fundamental tales.”

Check out how to reconnect with those key stories and weave them back into your draft in Belcastro’s column on Writer’s Digest.
