Fast Draft…almost

Starting Monday 8th August, I embarked on Fast Draft, a two-week intensive program to write the entire first draft of my next novel. Fo those of you who are unfamiliar with Fast Draft, check out Candace Havens’ website www.candacehavens.com

So, Monday and Tuesday went pretty well. Twenty pages a day? Pshaw! I was psyched, I had the company and support of my fellow RWA Online Chapter members and my next book was taking shape.
This morning, I pulled a tendon in my right wrist. I can still type, but it’s awkward (wrist brace), slow and painful. Plus, I make a lot of typos.

But I’m not giving up! I’ve decided to reshape Fast Draft for my circumstances. Instead of twenty pages per day for two weeks, I’m going to try for ten pages per day for four.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

About oliviaventura

I was born many years ago in... No, seriously, all you need to know about me is that I love love LOVE reading, and it's even more fun to write my own stories (I get to choose the ending that way). I've worked in plenty of different jobs, many in retail, which is the best way to meet some really colorful people, and also in recruitment, telecommunications, and food safety. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and I'm still on the lookout for Mr. Right, so if you know him, send him my way. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you think of my stories, so please drop me a line at liv@oliviaventura.net. Feel free to be lavish with your praise if you enjoyed, otherwise, be gentle!
