Raumtweet out in Twitterland asked the following question (paraphrased):
How is writing [short chapters, updating frequently in CBWR?] changing your writing process?
A couple of different ways. For one, it is forcing me to make sure I write something every day. If you write, you know it was to be in the front of your mind at least some of the time. If you make yourself write daily, you'll always be in practice.
Writing in little bits and pieces, and then publishing them on FFN, is also making me fix my own mistakes! I don't mean typos and such, but if I write something in chapter 3 and publish it, I can't go back and change it in chapter 12. Like Edward, I'm stuck with my choices, and it's made me have to be a bit more creative. In retrospect (this is a silly example), I shouldn't have given Edward a 9 inch cock, for instance. (Where's that pringles can???) Now, I'm stuck with it! So I thought of an amusing way to bring that up again later! You'll just have to wait and see...I'm not telling.
I also really love the instant feedback I get from posting every day. With a 7000 word chapter (UC average), there's a lot to get through and a lot can happen. Getting feedback on 1000 word chapters does actually have some impact on the next 1000 words. It's like having 500 betas for every chapter! Only they're not correcting the current one, they are helping out with future ones.
More than anything, it's just a different way of writing for me. Any time you make yourself get out of your comfort zone you are going to grow. So I hope this exercise will end up helping me be an all around better writer - for CBWR, UC, and anything else I write in the future!
Thanks a lot for the question!
I have to say this one more time - you people have got to be the best group of fans in existence. Seriously. I can't even begin to count all the emails, PMs, reviews, comments, etc. that have been sent, posted and tweeted offering me your support and general warm fuzzies. I truly, truly appreciate it. Hopefully everything is all calmed down now. It seems to be. :)
