I've written before about how painfully slowly I write. Today I've put in four hours and rattled out....... Two pages! Two.... Friggin'.... Pages! Now, I know I am alright as a writer - people do seem to like my output. But I'm having trouble reconciling this with how loooong it takes me to form sentences and render a scene into a readable shape. Half my problem is I simply can't move on until a paragraph reads like something I'd call a second draft. Though this hardly helps as I return to pages at least another half dozen times and re-draft..... And re-draft..... And wonder what the hell I was thinking on all those past drafts, so..... Re-draft.... Nyaaaagh! Anyone else find writing such a struggle yet turn out reasonable stuff all the same? How do you square that against all the Kerouacs out there who seem to pile through 300 pages in a fortnight and still keep your self-confidence up?
