[box type="note"] Kat again! :) I know I'm not the only one who's always looking for ways to draft faster. So here today is indie writer Heather C.

It’s also important for traditionally-published authors, as they have deadlines they must adhere to. The challenge is: how do you generate quality material at a fast pace?
