When I asked him about it, this is what he had to say:
Here’s a stupid idea. I’m going to write a novel in week.
So when you’ve all stopped laughing and questioning my sanity, you’ll ask why. The answer is… because I’m bored. It’s not a bet and it’s not for charity, it’s just to see whether or not I can do it.
I begin next Monday morning, July 9th 2012, and work through to Sunday 15th, and at the end of that seven days, I expect to have 60,000-70,000 words written. Not a publishable novel, just a good first draft.
And if I get there, what happens to the finished project? At some stage I’ll bring it up to spec and Crooked Cat will get first refusal. If they don’t want it, I’ll probably self-publish.
Would you like to follow my progress? Aside from writing over 10,000 words a day, I’ll also be blogging my exploits at http://novelinaweek.blogspot.co.uk/ and you’re welcome to join me.
Good luck, David! I'm sure to follow your updates.
