Martini on writing fast

by on 29/08/10 at 7:00 am

My manuscripts, which are fairly long (130,000 to 150.000 words), are produced in final form in a period of between four and five months. For this reason my writing day is very long and often stretches from late morning until late into the night and as the deadline approaches often into the wee hours of the morning. It can be very intense, but I find that plots that are intricate and involved with numerous twists are often best crafted in a more compressed time frame. It’s easier to retain mastery over all of the complex story elements.–Steve Martini as told to James Scott Bell in The Art of War for Writers
