Sally Q is starting a challenge to write an 80,000 word novel in 80 days, starting 1st May and conveniently finishing just as the kids break up from school on July 19th.
1000 words a day - that's easier than Nanowrimo, and you end up with a full-length novel. It'll need editing, but you'll have the first draft done.
So if you've wanted to write a novel and have an idea, but have just not got round to starting, why not have a go at this and get that first draft done in one push. Go here to sign up.
I'm about 10,000 words from the end of my first draft and then I want to push on with editing it, so I won't be doing this, but best of luck to all who do!
