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?

    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!

    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?
