Are you a fast or slow writer?
When I’m writing, I find it very hard to move on when each sentence, paragraph, or page isn’t right — at least, right for my intentions in the moment. (Hindsight tends to bring clearer vision.) That means I can spin my wheels for hours if I can’t figure out how to move forward, and while I can sketch out upcoming scenes in the rough, I can’t get from one point to another until I’ve moved through the middle.
I’ve long wished I were the kind of writer who could get everything on the page in one messy draft, then go back later to edit, shape, refine. However, that’s easily said, and I’m sure that method brings its own challenges.
What are your own tendencies? Have you been able to reform them?
