2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love

2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love - Rachel Aaron Do you play fantasy football? Follow sports? Do you like math/statistics? If you are, and you're a writer (wow, only two people still with your hands up - good for you!), you will probably find some good actionable advice from the 'system' Rachel Aaron has created.The system is, at its base, a 3 point 'triangle' of strategies devised to boost word count. Aaron believes that quality is a natural byproduct of sheer word-count (loosely based on Gladwell's 10,000 hour 'rule'), but the main thrust of this short book is as-advertised: how to dramatically increase the number of words you write per hour.One of the main tenets is that you must outline. Aaron presents herself as a somewhat obsessive outliner, so pantsers may not really grok or be able to implement the ideas put forth.So, bust out your spreadsheet software and Scrivener and see if it works for you.
