it's a great life, if you don't weaken

So, you want to write a novel?

We're writing books.

The commitment is simple. 750 words a day. Three pages, manuscript format. 67,500 words in three months. Miss a day, make it up.

That's a pretty solid basic wordcount for anybody who wants to be a professional writer.

The idea of this is sort of an anti-NaNoWriMo. If you are working on another project--revising, whatever, you get your 750 words and go do the thing you're meant to be doing. Other writers will be around for coaching and bitch sessions and b*@khate.

Oh, yes, one more thing.

We will mock you if you fail.

So come on, sign up, post to announce your name and project, and off you go.

I'll be working on dust. Yes, this means I'm giving up my vacation (the things I do in support of my friends), but hell, 750 words a day?

That's nothing.

Grab a pen, and saddle up.

Novel. In 90.
