This song, Write Like the Wind, really hit home for me as so many writers simply don’t write fast enough to put fresh novels into my greedy hands.
I remember with fanfiction, often seeing my readers pleading (or gently prodding) for me to add another chapter. Its nice to feel needed, but sometimes I felt it was better to wait for the muse to spark something than write crap. Now I see the merit of writing anyway, or at last working on the story in some capacity.
- I will rework scenes, paragraphs, and sentences.
- I use grammar and spellcheckers to find weak verbs, dialog tags, and other elements of the story, and work on that through an editing process.
- I write a scene I will add later.
What are your thoughts on this topic- Do you feel pressure from readers to write faster, or do you, as a reader, wish for authors to write more of their novel series? Post in comments.
