Yesterday, I described a system for putting your writing in context by setting up a situation and a problem first. But when you do this, you may still have a number of options to choose from.
Whenever you face a decision, it will inevitably slow you down. Some people see this as writer’s block and say you should go faster, but it’s far better to slow down, give it some thought, make a decision and move forward. Otherwise, you just save up all the difficult decisions for later.
You don’t have to maintain the same pace all the time. Sometimes you’ll go faster, sometime’s you’ll need to slow down or stop to think. That’s OK, it’s just the nature of writing.
