There are some times when my fingers fly across the keyboard. Words tumble out as I'm pulled along by the story. I don't take a lot of time to really craft the words - I save that for the editing stage. That's how I normally work.
Other times, like last night, I take my sweet time. I savor each word, carefully molding it to fit the vision in my head. My word count is significantly lower when I do this, but it simply doesn't matter. What does matter is the rush of satisfaction and joy I get by experimenting with words.
How about you? Do you write slow and savor your words or do you save that for the editing stage?
