Today I’m starting to use the Book in a Month ‘system’ that I mentioned the other day in my post about books on writing.
I’m planning to finish the first draft in the course of the next 30-40 days (I’m being realistic – it’s the beginning of the new academic year!), so I calculate that should be 70,000 words in total (I already have 50,000+).
So, if you want to comment on here or you know me on Twitter (@ClareTeaches) or Facebook, please badger me – ideally, I’m aiming for 2,300 words per day, which would be 70,000 over the month. However, I haven’t written in over a year, so let’s see how my stamina goes! I’m happy to build up my daily word count over the first week or so and take a little longer to get to the end.
I’ll be posting daily word counts on Twitter and perhaps weekly ones on here, so here goes!
