All right, readers, I am taking a short break from the Writerly Sound Bites series once again. The last three articles took the wind out of my sails a bit, and I have some other items which need my attention. Hopefully I will be back with the next installment(s) at some point in the following weeks.
For today, allow me to leave you with this intriguing piece on writing fast:
How to Write Fast: A Review
I just finished reading “How to Write Fast” by Sean Platt and Neeve Silver, from the Sterling & Stone writing studio.
This was a slim yet inspiring book. It reads quickly and delivers an effective payload. I’ve struggled with writing consistently, and when I do write, it feels so slow! This was the right book at the right time for me.
One note on “writing fast”: the authors make it clear that they don’t feel any need to sacrifice quality for speed, yet their claimed rates are mind-boggling: 1 million words per year, or more! (That’s Pulp Speed.)
