The best thing about fast drafting is at the end of three weeks or so, you have a soldi first draft to work with. The drawback is you get really tired of writing every day!
Today’s writing session was a lesson in patience. When I get tired, I allow the characters to take over the story, which leads to an end product that is 75% dialogue. that’s about 25% percent too much, so I already know that I need to revisit today’s segment tomorrow to fill in the gaps in narrative, monologue, and exposition. But because the words are the page, I have something to work with tomorrow.
The other good news is that the draft broke 20,000 word today. Hooray!
