WRITE FAST WITH CHEAP TRICKS (but they work!): Contractions do not exist: Hyphens are taboo / everyone has two middle names – always them use /Repeat yourself for emphasis, repeatedly…really…I’m not kidding…it increases the word count! Now is not the time to write pretty – it’s to get to 50,000 words in 30 days. Get as far ahead as possible in the first week because difficult days are ahead. But a day’s writing is that days count only, even if you get way ahead. The next day you’re starting your count at word 1 for the day. Except for your planned for Non-Writing Day, see #14.
