January 17, 2017, changed my writing life.
It was the day that I bought Dragon NaturallySpeaking Premium and began dictating my first drafts. I went from 2-3,000 words per day and a one-day record of 6k+ to 3-5,000 words per hour and a record 14k+ in one day.
February 2017, I started and completed my first 100k Challenge ending with over 119k words.
Read more about why I started doing the 100k Challenge here.
Many other authors have joined in since I first announced it in February. We keep track of our progress in the 20Booksto50K writer group on Facebook.
I encourage you to give it a shot. Especially if you’ve already won a NaNoWriMo, this can be a fun way to level up.
