Taking my own advice from an earlier course at Swanwick, I began my new book. The course was The Ninety Day Novel. The basic idea is that the first draft of a novel can be written in ninety days if 700 words are written every day. If a day is missed because of wedding, illness, vet emergency, then you add on another day at the end.
First evening’s work was only 400 words but I made up for it yesterday and today reached over 2250. First chapter almost finished.
