How to Write a Short Story FastWriting a short story quickly
How the bird is flying..... Travelling and other travel
As one prepares for NunoWriMo, one hears a great deal of advices about "writing as fast as possible" or "not edit as you write", while the latter is simpler for some than for others, that the first statement "to write as fast as you can" is not always simple if you don't know how fast you can write.
Being a lyricist, writer of a blog and now a writer of literature, I have prepared myself to write quickly because I know that a first design is never "the final product", but "a one I need to finish". If I have an appointment, an already sensible understanding of a topic and the need to have a lot of processing times - which is quickly the case with 90% of my work - I would rather write a first design as quickly as possible and then attach or thoroughly review it later.
As well as using a number of these non-distracting authoring utilities and resource, below is a quick way to write this first design, and I trust they will help you as you get closer to NaNoWriMo or one of your typing objectives. Now I don't want to ring like your mother before a long drive, but breaks to typing are quickly harmful and not going to the bathroom is harmful to your bodily well being.
Empty your bubble, fill a jar with your favourite beverage and place a Do Not Disturb label on the doors of your offices, bedrooms, shoebox or wherever you want to write. You can' t write on call and the skill of "freestyle writing" is just that, an skill.
When you have trouble getting started, for the first ten minute of each write meeting, create a shortlist of things you want to accomplish in the amount of free space you have, then check them off while driving. This act of removing quests from this To Write Listen should also make spelling faster and focusing will help make sure that you write what you are meant to write.
A little advice: That is one of the basic principles of NaNoWriMo and one you should not fuck with if you want to beat the game. When you need to reread what was previously spelled to be able to write again, I suggest an alternative way, namely to leave a note for yourself at the end of a write meeting telling you where the story should go next.
Deadlines, a day-to-day aim and an overarching aim of completing a work or part of the client's work can put the fastest prolific authors under strain. An exasperated author is never a fast author. Positive stresses give you lines and poor skins, which is not really important during the NaNoWriMo months, as you won't see many folks, but not making it more difficult than it has to be to leave your cave on December 1.
"Hemingway said, "The first sketch of everything is shit," so make sure it's yours by not giving apes the right spelling (even if you know they're not), the right use of language, and above all not sweating when you start the third phrase in a line with the same name.
Obviously, if you can Avoid these things, you will be saving yourself a lot of in the long run, but if you are still working on boosting your tempo and adhering to verbal counts limits, I would always say that step and amount is more important at this state. But if you are conscious that you use the same words too often or misspell the same words over and over again, a post-it notes in your working area should put an end to their escapades.
Typing is always a little like hurdling, as fast as you can, there are always barriers you have to jump over to keep up your speed. With short version of words. I' use numbers over words for numbers; I' use'&' for'and'; I' use parentheses to leave a note for myself in caps if I am not satisfied with something I have posted and I feel I do not acknowledge it, e.g. (CHECK THIS) or (CAN ELABORATE IF REQUIRED) or (THIS MAY NOT BE RELEVANT) or (TOO SALESY?).
I try not to do the latter in NaNoWriMo, because that is a intonation that should be judged later (after November 30th), but sometimes when you know that something is not right and you know that your self in the near term cannot recognize this, you sense that it would not be right simply to overlook it.
Besides using "XX", I also use [ ] to post research commentary that is needed later, usually to describe a place or someone I either don't know what to write about yet, or probably I just can't mind at this point.
While I know it may sound the other way around - write more to write faster - I know that anything that prevents you from typing and makes you think too much is a threat to fast, prolific script. All too often in earlier cases I was at a loss about a sequence - usually a beginning or an end - and my occupation with it devours into my writeings.
So I write several different scenes of a sequence that I'm not really glad with, to deal with my hesitations and make it easier for me to choose what I want later. This is often the same for much of my text work, I also write several copies of the copy before I really have a sense of language and sound of my own voices that will help me accomplish what the customer wants.
These are sad - or happy for you, if you are not a scriptwriter - only suitable no matter how much you relish to write, there are things that will get you thriving from work on and others that feeling like extracting your teeth in anesthetic. If there is a shortage of pleasure often equals a shortage of velocity, so give yourself the go-ahead to press the ejection key if you are feeling your interest and write down tempo.
Whether it' a little bit of choclate, a little bit of vine or your favorite TV show, at the end of your write lesson you have something as an attraction to get there. Whereas the number of 1667 words a day in NaNoWriMo is a clear objective, I have scheduled "scheduled sessions" for work outside the months of November, on the assumption that if I am finished earlier, I can get up faster and do my comedies.
Since I write every single working days (for customers, me and my books) and can't pay for the energy of the everyday glass of tea or coffee, my award is to read or watch an installment of the TV show we plow through (currently Sons of Anarchy, Boardwalk Empire and The Wire (again)). Which hints or advices do you have to write quickly?
