Just passed the 25,000 word mark, 10 days into the month. Only 25,000 left to write and I’ll meet the mark! Writing every single day is hard work, but my internal editor has been shut off for the time being and I’m going for quantity over quality. I can always go back and berate myself for writing a piece of crap (although I don’t think it is). But at least I’ll be able to apply the red pen to an entire novel, not odd chapters here and there that eventually get drowned below an avalanche of other things to do.
And here I thought writing a 50,000 word novel in a month was a stupid idea. In fact, it seems to be the only way I can do it, no matter what the word count.
