David Mamet on Writing

You write your first draft about something you choose.

The during the process, you figure out it's about something altogether different.

Your next draft will then be about that altogether different topic--but it too becomes about something different.

This process continues on until you truly understand what you are trying to say and what your story is really about for you, the characters, and the audience.
