Grrrr. Why does writing take so long?
Ever been frustrated at how long it takes to write that story... that novel? Wished you knew a quicker way?
Our writing process is individual, but it could help if we were to pool our combined discoveries of shortcuts and handy tricks, no matter how dodgy. If it worked for you, maybe it could work for some of us too.
One that I should mention is: Using a professional critique, like Cornerstones or Hilary Johnson. In all cases when Ive done so, I've learnt how to take giant strides in improving my MS, steps which I would not have made without their guidance.
Unfortunately, at a cost. I would say, WELL worth it.
