HERE WE GO AGAIN: National Novel Writing Month

Click here for National Novel Writing Month information!

HAPPY NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH!

I have designated September as BACK TO WRITING MONTH. With that in mind, November is NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH! This is the time that the brave and imaginative try to write a book–a novel–in the space of 30 days. This is a time of joy, fright, expectation, palpitation and motivation!

A novel is composed of at least 40,000 to 50,000 words minimum. Some word counts are 80,000-100,000 words. From that, let me give this a math (and we will go at the minimum count here):

250 words (typed, double spaced)= 1 page

50,000 words/250 words=200 pages

200 pages/30 days=6.67 pages/day.

The question really is: Can you write 6, 7 pages a day?

Depending on how fast your type, you can do 6-7 pages! This is not impossible. You can do it! Whether you are a pantser or a plotter–it can be done!

Are you in?

I am.

Don’t be stressed out, Scribes, Oracles and Linguistic Acrobats. We got this!

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris
