I’m slow, I admit it. I’m definitely not one of those 1,000 words a day writers. Some days I only get a paragraph done.
Of course, I’m a complete amateur. I don’t do outlines, I don’t write the last chapter first, and I’m pretty sure I’m guilty of head-hopping. I start a book with an idea; a scene or a character, and I sit down and write. It’s a slow process. The plot and the characters coalesce one word at a time.
Most of the time I don’t even mind that I’m a tortoise. I’m too amazed that I can do it at all, to care about how fast or slow I am. Maybe, I’ll get faster maybe, I won’t. I like to think that I’ll get better 🙂
