Write a book as fast as you can

I just got done writing more than 4,000 words of a novel. 

Now some of you out there might be thinking: My God, 4,000 words. How does anyone write that much in a week, let alone in one sitting?

Well, boys and girls it’s easy if you just allow yourself to do it. Repeatedly, I’ve pounded on this theme of writing fast and from the heart.

That’s really all it takes. You can let loose with a torrent of words and still be writing a story of some kind. Yes. You really can, and I don’t mean a garbled mess of words and phrases that really don’t add up to much.

So what’s stopping so many authors from taking this route to writing? Why don’t more people who aspire to write books sit down and surrender to what’s waiting to come out them?

Are we reluctant to give up a couple hours or so a day to something we fear will turn out to be a vast waste of time?

I think so.

You know, fear constricts us in so many ways. And yet, this is such a minor fear, one certainly easy to push past. Once you overcome this fear, you’ll have won half the battle toward becoming an author.

Grab a piece of paper or sit down in front of that computer and let the words come. Don’t stop and think how to proceed. Don’t edit, for God’s sake. Just write, in a free-flowing natural state.

It’s the best way to write.
