How and Why to Write a First Fast Draft
I believe in writing fast and editing slow and in this presentation, I will explain why. I will encourage your creative spirit and give practical tips on drafting fast. This is not an outlining or plotting class, it’s about process. This presentation works for pantsers and outliners, beginners and established writers. One might wonder, why draft fast? But I say, why write slow? Let’s talk about it!
Jennifer Lynn Alvarez is the author of ten published novels, including the YA thriller Lies Like Wildfire and two middle-grade fantasy series. She earned her BA in English Literature from the University of California, Berkeley. It was many years and several rejected manuscripts before she accomplished her childhood dream of becoming an author. Jennifer also teaches creative writing classes through her local library, encouraging others to write their own stories, and actively volunteers for SCBWI.
