It’s time to crack down on this novel writing business. I refuse to be one of those people who sits idly, staring away at their computer screen tweeting and surfing the web.
I will have a published book within two years. I will have my manuscript beautifully mastered within a year. I will make a commitment to make writing my novel like a part time job – I will write at least 1,000 words a day, and I will “take time off” where needed, and as i would do with a regular job. I hope to get my book up to 85,000 words. This means, in no more than 85 days, I have will have a fully written manuscript. Then I shall proceed with the fine tuning and editing – I don’t want an editor to have to do too much work. I know how much of a struggle that can be.
In a year, or less, or roughly, I will be able to provide the title of my book and what it took to write it (by now you may have discerned it takes copious amounts of caffeine). Hopefully I’ll be able to provide exciting details about book signings, but that is in the back of my mind.
This is not about the money, or lack thereof.
This is about accomplishing a great feat.
