The month of March is Speedbo over at Seekerville – a wonderfully informative and useful blog run by a bunch of great authors (including Julie Lessman, Mary Conneally) targeted to people like me who are trying to write and publish books.
What is Speedbo? It’s a month dedicated to writing, with the aim of writing a book in a month.
I need a push in order to get my writing down, so I’ve joined Speedbo. I’m not actually aiming to write a whole book in a month, but I’ve set myself a target of writing 20 000 words. That works out at approximately 1000 words a day, five days a week. That gives me some leeway for the usual interruptions of sickness, teething and other chaos that happens when you’re mothering two tiny tots.
I’ve got a counter placed on the top of our blog so you can see how I’m tracking over the month. So far I’m very pleased with the progress I’m making!
Is anyone else participating in Speedbo this year?
