A Novel a Year; or, Fear and Gripping

OK, so this made me feel better. At 350 words x 5 days a week x 52 weeks…yeah, one can write a novel in that time!

(Omitting revisions, backstory, plotting and my nemesis – wondering if the plot is on the rails. But hey, I guess that can be Year 2).

And oh, this post, which is exactly on tone to kick my butt and get it out of the shitpile: what did I think, that writing a book was EASY?! Hell yeah! In other words: cheer up girl, you’re normal and not lame, it’s damn hard work and a bit of whinging goes a long way – so long as you don’t fall off the saddle.
