"every time he sat down to write, he read through and edited everything he'd written already. (I do this too, actually, which is why it takes me ages to write anything after a while because I spend most of the time I set aside to write editing instead.) As a consequence, he said the first seventy pages of his scripts were very well-written and the last acts were a lot more slap dash."
That's my modus operandi too - from essays to my MA thesis to articles. I re-write the first sections about a thousand times then dash off the final page or pages when there's no time left to even re-read them. They come out very lopsided.
