Sometimes I wish I could be one of those writers who sits down, writes a novel, and comes out with 90,000 words. But I’m the sort of writer who’s first draft will be around the 50,000 word mark… which is good, because I know that what I have is the bare bones of the story, but it’s also bad because I know I need to increase the word count by at least 10,000 words.
I did some research last night and from what I can see, the best way to do that is by adding sub plots. So I know what I’m going to be working on for the next few days.
What type of writer are you? The epic writer or the bare bones writer?
