Hi, I started writing a novel and I'm just wondering what the most common approach to it is in terms of speed. Should I write really fast (if possible) and ignore quality for now, and I mean really ignore quality, or should I continue how I'm going and go about it slowly, but in a way where the first draft seems close to final already. It took me many hours to finish 2,500 words. These hours were spread over 3 days, I had a lot of other things to do of course. I would like to have a novel in a year, I suppose, or at least a manuscript, some kind of finished online copy.
