Most people’s writing speed is pretty slow, but there are times when it works out like a charm, like when you are writing your first draft. If you have some kind of a writing speed that is slow, it may be a good idea to stop and think about it.
There’s nothing wrong with that. A writer’s first draft is not always as polished as they would like it to be, and often requires a lot of editing. If you’re new to writing or if you’re just getting started with it, try rewriting a few times and see if it gets easier. It’s a good idea to get a few drafts out of the way first to give yourself time to revise.
We’ll talk about how to improve the writing speed, but you can also use this as a way to find a rhythm.
First, decide on a word count for your first draft. Then make an outline of the most important characters, locations, and important events that will happen in your first draft. Then, go back and decide on the same word count for your second draft. Take these steps and you should be able to get pretty close to you first draft, especially if you don’t have a lot of characters and locations.
Well, I would say that if your first draft is anywhere near the first five pages of your first draft, then you have a lot of work to do. But if your first draft is anywhere near the first five pages of your first draft, then you have a lot of work to do.
You know the rule. It’s the first 10 pages of your first draft. If your first draft is anywhere near the first five pages of your first draft, then you have a lot of work to do. If your first draft is somewhere near the first five pages of your first draft, then you have a lot of work to do.
In fact, the first five pages of any first draft are the most important pages of any first draft. You’ll notice that most writers focus on these first five pages for a reason. You want to think ahead. You want to think about what your readers will think and how they will feel about your writing. You want to think about your voice. But the best writers concentrate on the first five pages of their first drafts, and then go out and write for hours and hours.
I think that’s true of almost any writer. I’m not a writer but I’m quite sure that I can explain this. Most writers think that they write fast, just because they’re so efficient. But the truth is, most writers are also pretty bad at reading. They aren’t fast readers. They aren’t quick readers. They aren’t smart readers. They aren’t even fast writers.
I like to think that most writers are slow learners, but I also like to think that they are very fast writers. I mean, how bad is writing? I have a hard time believing that anyone could ever be a good writer. I mean, can anyone read fast, and can anyone write fast? I think you can. I think you can read and write fast. But I think that you can also read and write slow.
