I am known for writing quickly and not doing a lot of rewrites.

I let people believe this.


Yesterday I wrote 3000-5000 words for the next three chapters in my story, and at 4:30 this morning I had an Epiphany that made me scrap all of it and go in a different direction.

Happens to the best of us.

  1. Must have been some direction from the outer limits. Quite often I am intercepted by a greater mind telling me……scrap that. At which point I do. Got to love the feedback from the ones that have passed. They still like to have a hand in the making of a book. I welcome all the great minds to help me along my writing journey……it’s what makes this journey so exciting.

    1. I wrote a chapter of about 3000 words, and then came back the next day and scrapped it, writing another 3000 words that day for that same chapter. Then I came back the next day and scrapped it again and rewrote it with another 3000 words in that day. So if I had stayed focused, I would’ve had 9000 new words instead of 3000 words re-written twice, but whatever it takes, right?
