An important announcement!

5 Mar

Right. I’m posting this here so everyone who follows me can see it.
I had an epiphany this morning at work. Don’t worry, it wasn’t painful. I realised that in my life I’ve accomplished almost everything I’ve ever wanted to do.


The only thing left on my list is to write a novel. Not to complete a novel, just have a bloody good try.

So that’s exactly what I’m going to be doing from April 1st to April 30th. I’m going to try my best to write a novel in a month. That’s 50,000 words (or more) to those who don’t know. Almost 1667 words or thereabouts ever day.

I’m posting the news here so I’m officially committed from here and can’t make any takebacks.

Here are the rules:-

By 11:59pm April 30th 2016 I (Ray Daley) must have written 50,000 words to have completed this task. There are no set daily targets, I might write more on some days than others.

If I haven’t completed 50,000 words by that point, I will have failed. But at least I’ll have tried and will have a better idea at what kind of writer I am. (Probably not a novelist, but we’ll see)

So what I need from you folks is the trust & belief in me to report my progress to you honestly. And I need you to support me by giving me the space & time to write in.

I may fail, but I’m going to give it my best.

Wish me luck, I’m mad as fuck for even considering it.
