Can you write a novel?


I have subscribed to a web-site for writers and what did they send me as their first daily tip? November is National Novel Writing Month, and the team is inviting writers to write a novel in just one month. 50,000 words. It sounds intimidating (to me), but then I picked a calculator and I realized that I have to produce 1,666 words per day for thirty days. The best part? They said - write a crappy first draft for all FIRST DRAFTS ARE CRAPPY. So, who is up for the challenge?

    Congratulations! So you are saying that the first time author with no previous writing experience is unlikely to succeed. Especially penning a novel in 30 days?

    Ian, I'd rather have something imperfect from you - rubbish or not - than nothing. Yes, there are plenty of people who write without remuneration - look at HP community! and you SHOULD write a novel. You need to team up with a recording person!
