As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

Fast Drafting: Boost Your Productivity Overnight

Writing 10,000 words a day. You can get to a point where you can out pace what you are doing.
Technique - How I went from 2,000 words a day to 10,000 words a day. Pick what works for you.  Know what you are going to write before you write it is number one.  If a scene goes sketchy or sideways you can cross it out. Dedicated five minutes of what I'm going to write today.  Three to five words snippets and go back and add to it. One five minute pre-write goes to whole scene. A whole scene equals on chapter.
Use note cards or write it down on a page.
When you have finished the full day just write a free sentence that you can do going forward. Start in drafting mode and don't change over to editing mode.
Have no internet access for writing time.
QQQ research for metaphors.  Use a searchable - replaceable.
Writing sprints
Loser has to post a funny joke or a picture of someone for the internet.

Word war.

Writing strategies.
Turn off the internet.
Hard to achieve a state of mind in flow with drafting to flow with editing. Just write and wait to go back to fix it later. Writing a short verse. Two hours that have to be filed with words. I just find thirty minutes or just find fifteen.  Most of the time you will find that you can do more.
Online critique groups can help you have more to show all the time.
It takes time to find the right one.
Don't be specific about how you write. It is all untrue that you have to have a specific time and space. Don't be precious about you process.
