One of my favorite films is The Remains of the Day, starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, so I was especially intrigued to read an article by Kazuo Ishiguro, who write the original novel...in four weeks!
I am always intrigued by the work habits of other writers, and there's quite a bit of discussion bandied about regarding the relative merits/demerits of fast writing and slow writing. Purposely setting out to write extremely long hours for a set period of time, Ishiguro called the four weeks of actual butt-in-chair writing time a "crash."
There is a school of thought that writing faster than the internal editor can keep up can help a writer tap into a flow of consciousness they might otherwise get to. I'm a slow writer, and admit I do feel a push to experiment with a Kazuo Ishiguro crash.
If you're a writer, what do you think? What's your process?
