Hi everyone, What's the shortest amount of time you've written a complete full-length novel? I've read articles by people who have written a novel in a month, or even less, and am wondering if anyone hear has accomplished a similar feat. I'm working on a novel that will probably be 90,000-100,000 when done, and currently I've got about 30,000, so I have another 60-70K left to go. I'm going on a trip in two months and want my book to be done by then, for several reasons I won't get into here. I know it's absolutely possible to finish my book in 2 months, but for some reason I'm finding it far more daunting than I should. When it comes to other things--like short stories I write for friends, or written assignments for work--I can sit down and crank out a few thousand words in a couple of hours, and it's good quality too. But with my novel I find this far more difficult. There's both the more "emotional" issues like fear of failure and procrastination, as far as the more "logistical" issues like making things more complex than they need to be. I really just want to be on track to getting this done. And I do love my story, a lot. It's just that, for reasons I'm not sure of, I have a very hard time bringing it through to the end. Even breaking past the 30,000-word threshold semi-recently was a huge accomplishment. I do work a 9-5 style job, and have an active social life, but I also typically have 3 or 4 free evenings a week, so time is not the issue. Any help or advice?
