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?
Don’t be stressed out, Scribes, Oracles and Linguistic Acrobats. We got this!
With Love & Ink,
