WRITING BY NUMBERS
Using my own special system- I have now completed three quarters of the first draft of my new novel in
less than four weeks - plan to be finished the draft by the end of this month. First I outline and then ploughing through at least two thousand words a day - I average one thousand words an hour and quarter of an hour for spell checking and grammarly - so already manuscript is pretty clean. I don't read it - until it is all finished. Funny thing, though I had an outline , one big surprise this week my protagonist, the beautiful Julianne suddenly took off to Casablanca and had a love affair. Very hot and steamy. A romantic encounter in Rick's Cafe in Casablanca. You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss....
