I met a fellow Toastmaster last year who said he and his wife go on vacation without a destination planned. I couldn’t imagine getting in the car and just driving to an unknown destination. How about you?
My time is valuable, so when I go on vacation, I want to get there using the shortest route.
I’m often looking for ways to do that with writing, too.
A few weeks ago, I wrote the FAST DRAFT, a little 20-page ebook to help you overcome writer’s block and write fast. Part of writing anything fast is having a plan. It doesn’t need to extremely detailed, but it helps to know a little about your character’s journey. Without a destination, it’s going to take you a lot longer to arrive. You might end up in a place you didn’t want to be, or in a place you love, but it’s going to take longer, and it’s a gamble.
To help with your plan to WRITE FAST, I’m sharing an idea that’s unique to me, but might help you loosely plot your book. I use FIRE as an analogy. You can download your free copy HERE.
I’d love to know if this idea helps you or hinders you on your writing journey. (There’s a little section on writing nonfiction, too.)
