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.

100 days

Published by suttope

Pete Sutton has a not so secret lair in the wilds of Fishponds, Bristol and dreams up stories, many of which are about magpies. He's had stuff published, online and in book form, and currently has a pile of words that one day may possibly be a novel. He wrote all about Fishponds for the Naked Guide to Bristol and has made more money from non-fiction than he has from fiction and wonders if that means the gods of publishing are trying to tell him something. You can find him all over social media or worrying about events he’s organised at the Bristol Festival of Literature. On Twitter he’s @suttope and his Bristol Book Blog is here: http://brsbkblog.blogspot.co.uk/ He's contributing editor of Far Horizons e-magazine which can be found here: http://info-far-horizons.wix.com/far-horizons-emag
