I've written 42,903 words of a novel draft in 3 weeks and here's what I've learned so far

@msweet Thank you! Are you writing a novel at the moment?

@bkam Cool, sounds like you found a sweet spot with the strictness of self-imposed constraints.

@bkam Go, you!

The "no coffee or internet until you've written 1,000 words" is an idea I especially like. I have to remember to try that...

@nindokag Thanks for reading andfor the encouragement :) I'm still at it! 56,557 so far.

I'm not finding that coffee makes much of a difference to creativity, but not having it for those first 1000 words is a form of motivation! Let me know if you do try it :)
