Some NaNoWriMo inspired math

Writing 50,000 words (the definition of a novel, according to NaNoWriMo) over the course of a month = writing 1,666.67 words a day.

250 words = a typical type-written, double-spaced page.

Therefore, writing a novel in a month = writing 6.67 pages a day.

Doesn't sound so tough when you break it down, does it? Best Blogger Tips

Thanks for that breakdown; I was wondering how many double-spaced pages per day it takes. YOU CAN DEFINITELY do this (again). :)
