How many hours to finish?

And I thought National Novel Writing Month – or NaNoWriMo was hard.

This endeavor makes me seem like an all time slacker.

On August 8, 2015 a group of people will write a book.

Want to write a book? You can if you’ve got 75 minutes spare

Not sure what the book will look like, but this article made me think.

What if I could write a chapter in 75 minutes?

Just how long would it take me to finish my manuscript?

Based on the premise of author Chris Farnell, I’d multiply the number of chapters by 75 minutes.

30 chapters X 75 minutes = 2250 min

2250 min = 37.5 hours

Okay, a writer needs time to eat and sleep so we couldn’t write around the clock. Besides, I’d need a back brace and something to get rid of finger cramps.

Based on this theory, writing an average of 4 hours a day, a rough draft could be completed in less than two weeks. So now I’m thinking this November, NaNoWriMo project is not so crazy after all. Except for the holidays putting a kink in those plans.

But, I’m gonna give my writing process some serious thought.

For more information on this project, head over to “NaNoSessionMo”.
