Fictionist, Poet, Writing Coach
I was on the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America website when I encountered a guest blog post by Sci Fi and Fantasy author, Rachel Aaron. In this blog, which you can read here http://www.sfwa.org/2011/12/guest-post-how-i-went-from-writing-2000-words-a-day-to-10000-words-a-day/ Aaron talks about how she went from writing 2000 words a day to 10,000. I’m not sure if I will ever reach 10,000 words a day, but I did find her technique interesting. Aaron has a 3 part method: Know what you write before you write it, track your productivity and writing habits and get excited about what you’re writing. The part that most intrigued me was know what you write before you write it.
I am typically a make it up as you go along writer. I don’t normally write detailed outlines or plot out scenes before writing. Maybe that’s why writing is often very frustrating. So for the project that I will be writing in 26 days, I will write a detailed outline before I start the marathon. I don’t have time to spend my writing days navel gazing. Thanks Rachel Aaron.
Thanks for Reading.
