Writing Like The Wind
Lately, I've been trying very hard not get addicted to new television shows. I have to write! But there are some that just grip me--like Game Of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martin's books. In fact, I've refused to read his books because I want to be surprised as I watch. (Now that is odd--because I'm usually all about the book, especially audio)
There is also something else I'm learning--that if you create a world that draws great interest, people want to read *more*. If you don't write fast enough, people either move on or you get you tube videos/songs made for you like the one below. (Which is awesome--cracked me up)
I am finding that I have a *drive* to write. To get the next book out...but it is not coming out fast enough for me. So, I am taking a craft class to see if I can move forth a bit more purposefully. So far, I am loving it. It makes my brain hurt. I will let you know how it works.
So what method do you use to write faster? Are you a Pantser, Plotter, or both? What works for you?
And for Readers, do you feel like singing the song you see above to some of your favorite writers--and to which ones? --You realize you could speak directly to some of your favorite Authors at Southern Magic Reader's Luncheon on November 3rd, 2012, in Birmingham. Now that would be fun! Tickets are still on Sale until October 28th, 2012. http://www.southernmagic.org/luncheon.html
Hope to see you there!
