Speed

It amazes me how fast people post new stories and chapters of their ongoing stories. I see some people putting out new things every day. Even my shortest stories (not counting drabbles) take me two or three days to compose and then edit and agonize over. (The only reason why I'm posting a lot of stuff now is that I have a backlog of stuff on whofic that I haven't posted here.) How do you people do it?

Personally, I don't XD
For drabbles & short one-shots (less than 2,000 words) it takes me a few hours at the most. And updating my chaptered stories is a little hell in itself. Even when the actual story is completed.

I'm forever in admiration when people update fast and regularly. I doubt I'd be able to do it.

I think I'm also in awe of those people because they have so many ideas. I sometimes spend a lot of time staring at a blank screen trying to think of things to write about.

Thee and me. I look at people cranking out (AND COMPLETING) massive fictions on an almost daily basis and it stuns me and sets my Musie to drinking (She does that anyway, but...) - I wanna know how they do it, too!!

Then again, you've got people who are slower at posting than I am and they wanna know how I do it! And some of the epic-writers wish they could slow down, but they've spoiled their readers, so they are rather envious of US, lol!!

*HUGS*

I suppose whatever works for you is what you should do, huh? It just amazes me how much some people can write.

Think sometimes we have no choice, lol!!

THIS. I marvel at that every time I read a multi-chapter long-fic that gets updated on a consistent, weekly basis. *Laughs*

Oh, that's why I don't start publishing my multi-chapter stuff until they're completely finished. It makes me look so efficient! ;)
