A Novel in 30 Days?

Question for the day: can you write a novel in 30 days?

Let me back up. The real question on my mind remains can I write a novel in 30 days? I find lots of books about it. Of course, I’ve heard the stories. Ian Flemming wrote Dr. No in 3 days, or so I’ve heard. Barbra Cartland built her career on writing a book a month. Other writers out there do it, so it is possible.

But Can I?

To answer that questions, I’ve decided to put that question to the test. I bought a book titled, cleverly enough, “Book in a Month” by Victoria Lynn┬áSchmidt, Ph.D. With education piled higher and deeper, she should know.

But again, I am sort of a fractured individual. I’ve written books, three months being my record, and can I really apply myself every day?

So, when do I begin, you ask? There are 60 pages to read. I look ahead to “Week 1” and see that the first day doesn’t look too arduous, well except for the, approximately, 2,666 words that I write a day, along with the other stuff that is involved in writing a novel. I’m not sure, but it looks like you are supposed to jump in and swim beginning on day 1. Today, I will read those pages and, if all things go well, I will start tomorrow.
