Fast Drafting Anyone?


This will be short. I am taking Candy Haven’s Fast Draft class which is basically writing your book in two weeks with no re-reading, no editing. Just basically vomiting the story out, then going back to flesh out the scenes, edits, etc after the entire story is there.

I confess…I’m not sure this is going to work for me. I like to tweak and edit as I go, which makes me write vvveeerrrryyyy sssssllllloooowwwwlllyyy!

With fast draft, Candy writes 20 pages a day. She doesn’t use word counts (i.e. a per day word count) because she thinks it easier, and therefore more encouraging, to count number of pages done.

So, if you’re a writer, do you count pages or words?

What’s the most you have ever written in one day?

Ok, back to the writing cave.

Head down. Fingers on keys.
