Work-in-Progress Wednesday

If you read my last post then you may know that I’m going to challenge myself to do a fast first draft in two weeks. This is based on Candace Haven’s Fast Draft workshop. She’s not offering the class right now, so I’m going to wing it. The idea is to do a fast first draft to the tune of twenty pages a day for fourteen days in just a couple hours a day.

Today was day one for me.

I didn’t do so well.

In two hours I managed about six and a half pages. Perhaps first day jitters? Or maybe twenty pages a day is an unrealistic goal for me. Whatever the case is, I think a little over six pages in two hours is a pretty good start.

  1. Word count goals are fine, but it’s good that you be kind to yourself about it. There’s nothing wrong with six-and-a-half pages. That’s got to be at least 2k. That’s a solid Nano pace.

    Good luck with your draft, although I don’t think you need it. You’ve got a solid work ethic going. 🙂

  2. I agree with you. A little over six pages in a couple of hours is a pretty good day for me and I’m not about to beat myself up over that! I’m pretty sure I’m not cut out for this Fast Draft, though I still plan to continue challenging myself over the next two weeks just to see what happens when I really push myself.
