|Carolyn Crane: slow, and she doesn't even have|
awesome red eyes!
Okay, so I have this punishing new schedule that I have made for myself that is a cruel 5000 words per week. LOL. It's 5000 polished and edited words, but still. (Yes, I know there are writers who put that down in a day.)
Then, after that, I'll go back and edit and revise. At that point, my progress is like minus 200 words a day. (Though, sometimes editing adds a few hundred words.) And this revising process will take weeks. Months.
So, for all you 2K, 4K a day folks:
- Are those words revised or raw?
- Is there ever a time where you're revising, and not adding any words whatsoever? How long does that last?
- If not, are you turning first drafts into your editor or agent?
- Or are you both revising AND adding that many thousands of words every day, 365 days a year? *gulp*
- Do you have any words of wisdom for me? I don't want to be slow forever.
