Write a Novel. Complete a Novel

Somehow, I always manage to come across someone’s novel writing advice. Either it falls into my internet lap, or I search for it when I’m bored.

Guest Post – Word Count or Time Target

I ran into another author on the web *digital crash*. This time it’s Grace Elliot. I received a blurb for Eulogy’s Secret, so I’m pretty excited about the book myself. You can see the Jane Austen influence in the cover. Want some advice on writing a novel? Here’s Grace: Word count or time target – which is more productive?
