This is an article by SC Skillman, giving three tips to help you to complete a 50,000 word first draft of a novel in a month. Three years after reading this inspiring article I saw NaNoWriMo, which led me to actually write my 70,000 word debut novel, Eleven Miles, in just a month and two days. I hope it inspires you in the same way it did me.
The task is: write a novel of at least 50,000 words in a month; and by the word “novel” we must mean, of course, “the first draft of a novel.” For I have not yet ever created a novel in a month; but in nine days time I will have done that very thing; and therefore I consider myself qualified to write the article.
