If you read my last blog, you know that I just made a commitment to write the first draft of my second novel in 100 days. Yikes.
My first book was written with no real deadline. I wrote it in the midst of full time work, trying to be a professional poker player, getting married, being pregnant, having a baby and finally becoming a full time mom.
This time, I’m setting a deadline: First draft in 100 days.
My goal is to end with about 85,000 words, which means I would have to write approximately 850 words a day. I’ll do this in the midst of dealing with my Trigeminal Neuralgia, my upcoming Radiosurgery in April, and while taking care of my 2-year old daughter.
Through the years, I’ve jotted down other book ideas. I guess it’s time to look back at those notes.
Today, I decide on a story. Tomorrow, day 1 begins.
Doable? We’ll see.
