The research is the easiest. The outline is the most fun because you can do anything. The first draft is the hardest, because every word of the outline has to be fleshed out. The rewrite is very satisfying, because I feel that everything I do is making the book a little better. When I’ve finished, I enjoy the feeling that I’ve paid the rent for a couple more years.
— Ken Follett
