Working on a WIP and Author Advice

Since Friday I have been working on a Work in Progress (WIP) story that I have been writing for a while, I have been changing it every time I go on it but I have managed to write 2000 words since Friday which is more than I can write when I am doing an essay.

Because I kept opening the document and reading through what I had written the day before and changing it before continuing writing so I asked two authors (who won't be named) who I know well enough to ask questions and know I will get an answer back about how they stop themselves from reading though there work and they both gave me some fab advice.

The Advice:
Author 1. Author one told me that they were guilty of doing exactly the same as I do so to stop them self they put a distinctive mark where you want to begin the next time you put it on something like a hash or anything you've not used in your work or what you don't plan on using I have started using the hash because I have used the star (*) to separate the beginning from the main story.

Author 2. Author two told me that they use a technique called fast drafting which means no matter what just keep writing and never go back because it all about moving forward like you do with a story you want the story to move forward not back. They keep a separate list of things that they want to change in the story and then change them in the revision only after you have completed the manuscript. The author also said that it would make a great blog post so they can write more on this.
