Get Ready To Dance: First Draft of CLOG! Is Ready


OK, boys and girls, the first draft of CLOG! is in the barn.

In 26 days, I wrote 75,980 words (3,000 a day) and 272 pages (10 a day) while editing a magazine full time. My most recent book, the memoir Burning the Furniture, took 28 days and it was just 65,000 words.

Clog is the story of a high school square dance team in 1963 and that's an oversimplification of Biblical proportion, but buy it and read it when it comes out. I think you'll like it. I do.

  3. Holy smokes, that is impressive! I wrote 35K during a NaNoWriMore (well, a pretend one some friends and I did in April) but ended up scrapping every last word. Write, Dan, write!
