Writing my next novel in 100 days…

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.

  1. Sounds like you have a good plan to meet your goal. That’s where I sometimes go wrong. I don’t set a firm goal and end up wandering. Trying to get better on that. It can be challenging with a little one and health issues to boot. I admire you!

  2. 85,000 words in 100 days, now that’s a challenge. Can’t wait to hear more about your progress and details on your 2nd novel! Type away! 🙂
