Writing picking up speed  Reply with quote  

I'm trying another approach this go around - want to see if any of you have tried the same.

Insteead of actually writing, you know... the details, the flair, the dialogue, etc., I'm telling. I'm just doing it to get it out of my head and on paper or in this case a thumb drive. Sometimes the line is little more then a note, a comment., sometimes in my own voice, sometimes a characters. I equate this to putting down a rough coat of primer. It's ugly and no one will ever see it but it's necessary for a finished product. Don't confuse this with a 1st draft. I wouldn't give it that much credit. I'm writing it (for now of course) as if I were explaining the entire book to someone.

Work for anyone else?

So, you're writing a Jackson Pollack? Shocked

Hey, whatever works- most of us are so busy procrastinating that we forget to write... Wink

I definitely have the procrastination skill down pat.
