I consider this my anti-NaNoWriMo writing plan. Not in the sense of, “Ew, I don’t like National Novel Writing Month,” but in the way that, if you don’t have time to do a deep fast month-long dive, here is a slower and steadier way to win the race.

Chuck’s “30 Days in the Word Mines” ends with an appendix entitled “‘The Big 350’ Zero-Fuckery Writing Plan”. It is a great, confidence-inspiring plan to keep you writing all year. The graphic above lays out the skeleton of the plan. Chuck’s no-nonsense pep talk and instructions are both encouraging and amusing. It confirms for you that YOU can do it!
