Write Your Novel This Summer – Tish Heath

Sort of NaNoWriMo extreme edition, this takes the whole writing, editing, and publishing journey down to 4 months (guessing author isn’t in the UK if they have a 4 month summer! ūüėČ )

I really can’t agree with the tone, that anyone can and should just self-publish something they spat out in 120 days. Yes, the point that you can and should encourage yourself to tell the story you want to is fine, but there are more than plenty rubbish reads out there to show that a little care and attention is no bad thing.

The advice about not taking things too seriously is kind of okay, but I don’t think editing should happen immediately, or in one mad pass over a month or two. What’s the rush?! Wouldn’t you rather write something vaguely worthwhile and polished?! The author of this little pamphlet would denounce me as a snob, but so be it:¬†poorly edited scribbles are okay-ish for blogs, but I hold actual books in better respect.
