How To Write 50,000 Words in 30 Days by Mike Coville

Subtitle: and survive to tell your story!

Published: 2014

Genre: nonfiction, writing

Length: 88 pages

Interest: Mike Coville contacted me and asked me to provide an honest review of his newly published book. I agreed.

nanowrimoSummary: The book lays out some information on participating in NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month. The author starts with prepping for writing so many words before November starts. He then runs through the pitfalls to expect as the month goes on, week by week.

Summary: The book would be useful if you’ve considered doing NaNoWriMo and just want to know what to expect. It’s a quick read, with short chapters. The chapters were informative, but the topics didn’t always follow logically. I also wanted more information on the prizes handed out if you are a winner (i.e. you complete all 50,000 words in November). For being a self-published book, it was well-edited. I didn’t notice any spelling or grammar mistakes (and I often find them in published text).

Title comes from: It’s descriptive of the book topic

Reading challenges fulfilled: 64/100 in my 100 Book Challenge
