So today, I put on a new song I found, I focused on one paragraph, and I spent five minutes writing that paragraph.
Somehow this is a skill I have to learn over and over again. Don't rush through the action. Don't let the action override the characters' feelings. Write from within. Take a moment to breathe and describe what you're experiencing.
I never learn this lesson, I drive myself into the ground, and then I have to relearn the lesson. It's not about quantity. It's about quality.
So now I think I have a good escape scene, and I have already cut 4,000 words from my WIP. That's awesome.
