Writing Fast (Bad) First Drafts–Episode 67–October 12 2015

Struggling with finishing the first draft of your book? In episode 67 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast I discuss the merits of writing fast first drafts. I also touch on:

  • why you can’t wait until you know what you want to say to start writing;
  • the actual origin of “Write Drunk, Edit Sober” (it’s not Hemingway);
  • insight from Nora Roberts, Vladimir Nabokov, Anne Lamott, and Bernard Malamud;
  • why I need to take my own advice.

To send comments or questions, find me on Facebook, Twitter, or email me at podcast(at) And remember, emailed questions can come either as text or as MP3 audio files, which I will drop directly into the show.
