There are many different approaches to writing. I’m discovering that there are authors who insist that only their way is correct and offer classes or paid boot camps to teach this method. My experience has proven that this is a red flag. I recently had a bad experience that was very stressful and beat some of my writing enthusiasm out of me.
Writing a perfectly grammatically correct first or second draft of my manuscript (MS) does not work for me. I am very intelligent and have a graduate degree. My grammar tends to be good. But I have a learning disability similar to dyslexia. I read a bit slower than most people but I often think faster than I can write or type and will skip words, use wrong words, or include extra words. Then during the editing process, I don’t see some of these errors. I have to literally read aloud every sentence. For a recent boot camp I was spending hours editing small chunks of writing instead of getting the story told.
The result of this was loss of enthusiasm and feeling stressed and frustrated.
That method of learning to write “clean” works for many other writers. There is nothing wrong with that approach. It just doesn’t work for me.
