100 days to write a novel?

OK this is it people. This is me seeking to be held responsible and to stop procrastinating. I’m going to do a 100 day novel writing plan. Why 100 days? Well a good draft can be written in 3 months and an extra few days for contingencies for rounding it up…

I’m going to start on July 1st (which means an end date of 9th of October) which is 14 weeks. Which, for a 70k book that’s 5000 words per week which sounds doable.

I have a vomit draft and a synopsis so it’s time to do this thing!

Certainty of Dust in 100 days…

I’ll update end of each week on e.g. words done, hints of plot, some words on what I’m learning about writing etc.
