What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
There are a lot of different kinds of writing how-to books out there, but I had never read one about attempting to write your novel quickly before. The shortest amount of time seemed to be 30 days, as with NaNoWriMo, and I knew that I had completed a full first draft of my novel, Ninjas of the 512, in only three days as part of the 3-Day Novel Contest.
Thinking back to the method I used, it seemed to me that concentrating your efforts over a very short period of time was what enabled me to complete this manuscript, and I wanted to share that idea that going faster is sometimes exactly what your book needs to get written.
When I tell people I wrote a novel in just three days, their first reaction is typically shock.
“Oh my god!” they’ll say, “How did you do that?”
When I tell them I was participating in an annual event called the 3-Day Novel Contest, they’re often even more surprised.
“Wait, you mean this happens every year?! What kind of lunatics would do such a thing?”
The short answer is: Canadians, mostly, as the event originally began in Vancouver.
The longer answer is: People who like a good challenge. People like me.
My name is Laura Roberts, and I’m a Three Day Novelist. In 2011, I participated in the 34th annual 3-Day Novel Contest. I paid the $50 entry fee and spent most of my Labor Day weekend holed up in my apartment writing what would eventually become my first published book, Ninjas of the 512: A Texas-Sized Satire.
It was one of the hardest, craziest, and most ridiculously fun things I’ve ever done. After typing for 72 hours (with intermittent breaks for food, drink, caffeine, more caffeine, chocolate, still more caffeine, showers or naps when my energy was flagging, and a Sunday workout), I felt like my hands were going to fall off. But I finished my manuscript, and sent it in to be judged. The feeling was amazing. I had completed my first full-length book!
Of course the manuscript was nowhere near complete – it was totally unedited, had plenty of typos and spelling errors and parts that said “TK” and “Add More Here!” It certainly wasn’t something I intended to upload to Amazon as a finished product, right then and there. But it was a complete story, told from start to finish. It was a 100% complete first draft.
And it’s something you can learn how to do, too, because I can teach you my method.
