So I have been thinking these past few days... I want to know how people can crank out a series of books in such a short time? Is it just smoke and mirrors or does it just happen that fast?
I've had several book and story ideas floating around in my brain and I keep thinking, "Man, I need to get this stuff down on paper!" and I never do. I keep thinking this same thing, but then I find myself distracted by work, chores, finding a moment to relax and now I am trying to integrate exercise into my life and routine. I feel like there are times I just don't give writing my all and if I would... wow... the things I could produce!
So is it just me or do these books I see on the shelves seem to be appearing at an alarmingly fast rate? Do these authors not sleep? What keeps them motivated and on task? What drives them? Do they just write out complete and total rough drafts in an hour and spend the rest of the week hammering out the details?
I'm a pantser, I've admitted to that before. I write by the seat of my pants. Careful planning is not my style, but I am thinking perhaps it should be if I want to see more than one book come to fruition.
What's your take on this?
