How To Write Faster
This article tells how. Nothing new here; what I need is an article telling me how to stick to the advice.
What do you all do to improve your writing productivity?
I wish I wrote fast. I'm slow. Dorothy Parker said, "I can't write five words but that I don't change seven." Me. too!
When I can't think of how to say what I want to say I accept whatever comes along. (Wm. Stafford school of poetry.) So I'll write anyway and the next day when I read it, I'm thankful I persisted even though it needs work. At least I put the gist on the page. I can take what I wrote and improve it and then move along.
I am constantly interrupted, not one who closes herself off in the room with a Do Not Disturb sign. I wish! It's just not feasible for me.
So, the main thing is that I write even when the muse is on Jupiter. It might make me cringe, but it also has its moments to keep me keeping on.
Congrats on your textbook manuscript!
I think I've discovered the secret. It's learning how to say, "This is good enough."
Excellent, L C! Saying, "This is good enough" is a great thing to learn. Thanks.
I always think it's good enough until the next time I look at it.
I never think it's good enough.
At some point I just have to stop or I'll be revising the same manuscript for the rest of my life.
