While writing a sentence, I'm reading it in my head to check multiple things at once. Avoid sloppy writing to make the re-write easier. Here's what I check while typing. Is it too wordy? Is it interrupting the flow? Is it my best? Could I defend each word I write in this sentence? Is it moving the story along or am I rambling? Do I repeat any words or sounds? Is this something I would like to read? Is the tense correct? Sometimes when I write a sentence, I think, yeah of course it has all of those. Until it doesn't have all of those.. So back to rewriting I go before I move on to the next paragraph. -Keep in mind I could type about 5000 words a day if I'm full time. I feel like the more I practice this method, the better my first draft can be. So I can be perfect later in the long run. And editing won't be a pain in the ass. And the book will seem like less of a brain strangler. I also reread a lot of the sentences I wrote a couple of minutes ago and do those same checks. I'd like to hear your guys process, hope mine had helped. P.s Do any of you have a notebook to keep your notes in about writing?
