Slow Writing is the Literary Relative of Slow Cooking

With all the blog posts I have read about learning to write faster—I have even heard of “how to write a book in a weekend,” I want to take a moment to re-emphasize the value of writing slowly and carefully. Perhaps, what I would like to stop a moment to ponder is the literary equivalent of “slow cooking”: slow writing. But…

This is not the first time I have taken time to consider the value to you of slow writing. I wrote a piece for this blog entitled “Linger With Your Story — It’s a Good Habit to Develop.” I’d like to bring this post to your attention today. Click here to read that article. It is well worth your attention.

Slow writing can also bring its own pleasures as you enjoy remembering and turning a good phrase.
