She's really lost it this time

Those of you who're close to me know I'm apt to leap before I look, or think, for that matter. Crazy idea number one (of surely many to follow this coming year) is to somehow write an 80 000 (that's what I'm guesstimating) novel in time to revise and submit within March for Angry Robot's open door month. (Yes, I'm an Aries, in case you're wondering.)

Thing is, I work in a deadline-driven environment. I work better when someone expects me to achieve the impossible. So, anyone else wanting to jump in on the madness? I'll crit yours if you crit mine (anyone mad enough to try for the Angry Robot fling?).

  1. Okay, revise that to 100 000 words. I just checked to see that the fantasy novels have to be so many words...

  2. Because they are EPIC novel. Or something. Good luck Nerine!!

  3. Eeep that's one hell of a deadline. Leave yourself plenty of time to revise.

    I suggest aim for 80 k first draft, then build up layers in the revisions.


  4. 100,000 words by March... It's doable, I think I'd be up for giving it a try! :)
