I began writing the first draft of book 1 in a new series last Thursday. Over the years, I've learned that the best way for me to write is in sprints. Two x 15 minute sprints results in 1,000 words. The most I've written in a week (on my novel that becomes available in April) is about 12,000 words...
So I am challenging myself to write the first draft of this novel in 4 weeks... approximately 15k - 16k words per week for a total of 60k - 65k words. Once I revise it, the novel should come out around 65k - 70k based on how I revise and edit.
It's a do-able challenge.
As I started my day, I was just over 5,000 words.
I'll update my progress daily :)
