Wanna Write a Book in 2 Weeks?

I’m planning to do fast draft for my WIP 1st draft. Basically this is how it works for those of you who’ve never done fast draft before.

You write 20 manuscript pages* a day for 14 days. That’s it. That’s your fast draft. (For the math-impaired, you’ll end up with a 280 page manuscript, which is about 70k, assuming that each page has 250 words.)

I’m going to start on August 15 and giving myself an extra day since I’m flying to Asia during that time. Anyone interested?

If so, comment here or tweet me @nadialee. I’m going to post my progress, etc. using #writegoal and #fastdraft.

* I use Courier 12 double-spaced, 25 lines per page.

    I will join. I don’t know what kind of book I’m going to write in two weeks, but it’ll be interesting to find out.

    Cheers!

    I’m not going to be joining you on this one, Nadia (because of the writing class I’m taking), but I’ll be cheering you on!
