2 Years to a Book. That’s what I realised I could accomplish – on top of my normal writing projects and goals during the year. For others who don’t have the luxury of so many free hours to write, as I do, the program also allows for a book draft completed during that first year.
Writing Maxims to Live By, and Break
“There are three rules for writing. Unfortunately, nobody knows what they are.” – Somerset Maugham.
If only there were a Writing Rule Book, but it went missing, along with that Parent Manual 101 I was looking for some years back.
Two infographics that should convince you how important it is to not sit down too much.
The One Million Words and the 10,000 Hours theories: both are commonly espoused writing apprenticeship practices that continue to do the rounds of blogs and forums every few months.
Reaching these “apprenticeship” goals will not make us a bestseller, and not reaching them will not necessarily stop us from finding a publisher, or selling our work either. But there are core writing habits found in both, that we, as writers, can work with.
Don’t you just love moleskine notebooks (or similar)?
Other infographics like this can be found at my Pinterest boards.
