your first draft in one year

A typical novel is 80,000 words–100,000 words.

There are 365 days in a year

So if you wanted to write an 80,000 word novel in one year, you would need to schedule 220 words/day. That’s roughly one double-spaced 12font page.

Or 100,000 word novel would be 274 words/day, less than 2 pages.

Of course, you’d want to account for days ‘off’, so you’d need to adjust accordingly.

Think of it. A first draft of your novel in one year. Only a page or two per day.

How hard could that be?
