Always helpful to get new tips--thanks for sharing!
Interesting video and I understand how separating the two processes is important. I write one day, edit what I've written the next day. That won't be the last time I edit, of course, but it seems that if I give my story the space of one day, I can expand, delete, hone those scenes etc. so that it pushes me forward.
@Jenny = Thank you for stopping by. @Cleem = I do that sometimes, too. Depending on the flow of the story coming out of me at the time. :-)
Thanks for sharing the tips. I will use them. I wrote my first novel 'Perfect Wedding' due to print June 2012, while taking a course to learn how to write a novel. It was hard reading and then applying what I read to the story. I found myself writing then editing to make sure words, worked together and making sure I was showing and not telling etc. Well it seems that it will be better to write it all out and then go back and do the technical stuff.
Great post Kate! and so valid! It's so important to enjoy the writing process and to wear different hats. I often mentally slap myself as I get caught up in editing. Just going with the flow and enjoying it is so important. Editing is so technical and it can hinder the mind. Great topic to raise, thanks for making me more aware that I need to keep slapping myself when I obesses about it being perfect strait from my brain! There is planty of time for that later! Just enjoy it!http://can-duu.blogspot.com/
