Fast Draft Insanity


In response to Krysta Scott’s previous post – as a die hard Oklahoma City fan. I cannot speak. I’m soooo angry and disillusioned with the NBA. But truly, that has nothing to do with Fast Draft Insanity…which is what me and three of my writing cohorts have decided to undertake in an effort to get our writing habits kicked into high gear.

First of all, this is a method that Candace Havens created because she was so busy. Well, I’m busy too! So Mary Jo Springer, Alicia Dean, and Krysta Scott have decided to try it.

Here’s the thing. We have fourteen days to write a complete draft of a book. Candace recommends 20 pages per day. That is enough for a 70k word Single Title, or 280 page book.

The rules:

No editing

No tv

No reading

Must give a daily report to your cohorts


I think there are more rules, but I’m freaking out over just these. So, for the next fourteen days, I am teaching an online class, but will still have to churn out my pages and report my accomplishments.

My daily reward for completing my goal? To read before I go to sleep each night.

We have aready made reservations for our celebratory dinner, set for Friday, June 17th at The Melting Pot. Wish us luck!
