Minute to a Better Book is an experiment. I created it May 15th, 2018, but I didn’t start until summertime. The goal was to see how quickly I could finish 300 hours of writing.
For this experiment, only fiction writing counted. More specifically, only minutes spent writing and revising my book series counted.
I wanted to spend more time writing my books and telling an epic story. To do this properly, I needed to give my novels attention as frequently as possible, with as much time as I could dedicate.
Will you still write articles and posts?
Yes, but they will not count towards my minutes. In fact, I will post about this process on Instagram, Twitter, and WordPress fairly regularly.
Will you still create short fiction?
Yes, but those short stories will not count towards my minutes. Any short stories I create will go to my Patreon page or straight to contests.
Only the minutes spent writing my book series will count towards the 300 hour total. After all, my overarching project is called Curtis Writes Books, not Curtis Writes Blog Posts About Books.
Every minute will count. I will make them count.
If I’m dedicating as many hours as I can towards writing my book series, I’m going to make it extra fun. As I reach each milestone below, I will make a post.
Having this schedule helps me take the anxiety away from planning when and how I will post. If you want to do this experiment with me, go ahead! There are no rules.
I suggest having a specific piece to work on and keeping track of your minutes. I’m aiming for 300 Hours (18,000 minutes) by August 1st. While I have already dedicated time towards my novel, I feel compelled to really dive in now!
