My new book (Shiver) is well underway:

summary and outlines have been written up;
the plot is semi-worked out;
the cover has already been made and approved;
the first chapter is going along good

I’m striving to write 1000 to 2000 words a day. I figure that I can do that, cause I’ve done it before through NaNoWriMo; in that case the group’s goal was for it’s members to write 1667 words per day for 30 days ending with a short novel 50,000 words long or approx. 175 printed pages. In the end I had just under 200,000 words and almost 250 pages. I set that book aside though, and have yet to publish it. My NaNo entry was more of a “private book”, a personal challange to myself to see if I could push myself to write each and every day. I did and proved to myself that I could do it if I put my mind to it.

And so now I’m working on a book, using the same writing methods used by NaNoWriMo. This time I’m going at it with the goal of writing a publishable book, and to do it in three months or less, writing 1000 to 2000 words a day.

Let you know how it goes.
