I don’t write fast any more. I think it’s because I’m more of the planner, and I don’t like rewrites, so I want things to be perfect (or as perfect as they can be in a first draft). But I’ve discovered that if I head to a coffee shop, or my studio, I seem to get more done lately. Which is why I love that I have a group of writers/artists that are willing to get together with me every Sunday at Gibson’s Bookstore in Concord and write. If you’re in the area and want to join us, feel free. I get so much done.
Like today. I got 4454 words written in about 5 hours, which is excellent for me. Also, Gibson’s has an amazing coffee/tea bar, and the baristas are the best. I wish I could work here every day.
I’m making progress on Winter’s Secrets, and it WILL be launched at Balticon. In paperback and ebook. I’m also starting to make the outline for Advent #6 (wow, I can’t believe this will be the 6th year of this!) and the first full season of Pendragon. And I have to finish Resonant Frequencies. There’s so much to do, and only a finite amount of time.
But I’m doing it. This year is my year.
