That resonated. I write really fast too. I love it. The rush of learning what the story wants. Scary too but sooo good.
Tiny

In a memoir, do I need to fictionalize names of people I knew at the time and who affected my life? Should I use a fictional name myself to protect my adult children? I need an answer to this before I can publish as I will have to go through the entire book and redo everything. Please give me some advice! Thanks.
Tiny

Hi Kay, I'm interested to know if you received a response to your question. I'm also thinking I should use a pen name and change names and specific circumstances. Looking for advice...
Tiny

Wow I can't write creatively for 8 hours it blows my brain out. Is it just me or is she that brilliant? She definately motivated me to try and write in any enviroment possible.
Tiny

Leslie - I agree, she is brilliant. :) But don't sell yourself short - I say just write for as long as you can every time and that's always going to be enough... because it has to be.
Tiny

Thank you I am more motivated than ever because I finally realize It makes me happy to write and I cant worry about if it is any good or if anyone will like it. Just write for the love of it!

I am a "slow fast writer:" An idea percolates for months or even years, then BOOM! Out come the words. Not a fast or efficient process. How to speed things up a bit?
Tiny

Bill - one piece of advice comes from John Locke (https://www.authorlearningcenter.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=john+locke&x=0&y=0). He suggests you avoid research while you are writing. Just make notes about what you need to fill in with research and keep moving. That way you don't get distracted while writing by looking up the name of a street or a building in your town, for instance.

I find no two writers have the exact same process. The key is to figure out what works for you and use that.
Tiny

I found your talk helpful & inspiring. Wish I could be as fast and as focused as you are. JRS
Tiny

The key is to figure out a process and plan that works for you. The Author Learning Center has a lot of expert advice on writing. I hope you find other information as useful.
Tiny

You're a very strong speaker/writer. Keep up the good writing.
Tiny

Charlie- I'll pass your message on to Bella. Thanks!
