Simple Math

I have determined that if I write an average of 1,000 words a day, every day, I should be able to finish the rough draft of my 100,000 word novel in ... wait for it ... 100 days. Amazing, yes? I figured that out all by myself.

And how, you may be asking yourself, do I propose to write 1,000 words every day, when I can barely manage to post a few-hundred-word blog entry a few times per week? Simple! I'm going to keep my blog posts very short, or post extracts from the novel in progress, or background notes that I've already written previously. Of course now you're thinking, 'Wait a sec ... he does that already!' And you would be correct. You're so smart - and observant! Pat yourself on the back for me!

And now, I must go back to writing my 1,000 words for the day. See you tomorrow!
