In my experience speed writing comes when ideas are bombarding you like hail. There is no time to rewrite, correct spelling or fix grammar. You just go as fast as you can to make notes understandable, dialogue aimed at the right character, and enough scene description so that you can recall the moment. IN most cases I cut and paste that portion of the fie into a separate one because in some cases, I can revisit the revelation.
The long run marathon of fixing the hodgepodge of semi-gibberish created by speed writing is also necessary for the novelist. It isn’t every day that we are blessed with a portal to unique ideas and dialog.
The miles that have to be crossed in completing a long form story takes hours of work interspersed with those inspiring sprints.
The time it takes to plan, execute, then sell and market a story requires many speeds.
No matter what pace you write, it is important to always feel the wind at your face.
lots of good stuff
