"The idea of writing a BOOK, is a bit scary"
My dream is to write a fiction novel. I really love the idea of writing 200 words a day. It is a good place to start and get my project rolling. I have been writing blog posts for the past two months and have averaged about 800 words per post. There is a big sense of accomplishment with the shorter format.
The idea of writing a BOOK, is a bit scary. It seems like a huge commitment. A blog post, on the other hand, is relatively easy to conceive and churn out a finished product. However, 200 words a day seems like a concept that could really get me going on the novel. If I were to set my goal at 200 as a minimum and write more, all the better.
A fiction novel is generally around 80,000 to 100,000 words. At 200 words a day that would take, at least, 400 days or a year and a month. My wish would be to write the book in six months and then to take a few more for editing. To achieve that, I would have to commit to writing 450 words a day. I think it is best to start with 200.
