A lot more today on fast drafting and the pros and cons of writing so fast that it requires huge amounts of revising time vs. taking more time while drafting so there's less revising time. As always, it depends on what you're trying to do!

The snippet I posted to Facebook is this:

“Will you be needing a lady’s maid, Lady Zephyr,” the page inquired.

“Moranu, no!” Zeph replied, a bit too forcefully—partly because she’d just registered that she and Astar would apparently be sharing a room. And the one bed. Praise the goddess. She hoped, anyway, as she and Astar hadn’t quite finished that conversation. A sneaky and most unfamiliar feeling kept prodding at her that she should release Astar from that vow. While another and far more familiar voice tried to shout it down. Why shouldn’t they enjoy they enjoy each other? 

Because it will tear him apart and you know it, the annoying voice replied.

Shush, she told it. He’ll enjoy it and I know that. He’ll be better for sowing some oats before they lock him up to play stud for the High Throne.

Astar isn’t the kind to bed a woman lightly. If you do this, it will change everything for him. Are you willing to take responsibility for that?

 Look, voice, she replied. I don’t know where you came from, but you are not welcome in my head.

I’ve always been here. You just don’t ever listen.

“Zephyr?” Astar said her name in a tone that indicated it wasn’t the first time.

She realized she’d been staring at the one—albeit quite large—and enticing bed while she wrestled with the annoying voice in her head. Wonderful. Now she was losing her mind.
