One of the hosts talked about how freeing it is to write fast knowing you can always go back. I understand how that could be very liberating, but I'm not sure I know how to do it. There's always that lingering sentence I just passed that I know full well needs to be tweaked, and will I remember to reconstruct it later exactly the way I want it written right now?
This new story I'm working on has a deadline of the end of next month. Honestly, I have plenty of time. I know exactly where the story is headed right down to the last sentence. It's just a matter of writing it and making it sing. The other night I tried writing fast paced and I found myself at a standstill. After a paragraph nothing would come out. I'm not sure if it's because I was deliberately trying to change something that didn't feel natural to me or if perhaps I genuinely had writer's block.
I like the idea of summoning a first draft so quickly and remodeling it later, but then again perhaps it's just not my style. That's what my wife says anyway: "Write like you."
