EPISODE 4: Writing faster – how to hit challenging word count goals without sacrificing story

Welcome to the Rage Against the Manuscript podcast. Join me – bestselling indie author Steff Green – as we talk about being a speed freak! Discover why you should master the skill of writing faster, what to do when you hit the "wall of suckage" and how to stop doing the hard work of writing in the most time-consuming way.


Listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

In this episode:

  • Why you should master the skill of writing faster.

  • Fast = crap writing. Why this is complete bullshit.

  • How to stop doing the hard work in the most time-consuming way.

  • “Set pieces” and how they can help you build a book without an outline.

  • How one spreadsheet will help you double your writing speed.

  • Where you write, when you write, and how long you write.

  • Hitting the wall of suckage.

  • Why the joy of writing is the secret sauce.

    "Some people believe that writing faster means you sacrifice quality. It makes you a hack. If you don’t work for every single word, if you don’t wrench them from the depths of your soul with copious amounts of tears and absinthe, then you’re not a writer. This is obviously bullshit."
