Writing Bits and Pieces

I wish I was one of those authors who could sit down to write and manage 5000 words, all at once.  Me, I do 600 here, 400 there, and by then end of the day - if I'm lucky - I'll have 2000 words.  I need more.

I've taken courses in how to write super fast.  Read books.  But the one time I tried that, I ended up with a disorganized mess and had to delete half of it, and fix the rest, which meant I'd have been better off just following my usual method.

So I plug away, hoping the scene shows itself, praying the characters reveal what they really want.

And one by one, the chapters get done.
