Project 52

If you're a writer like most, you'll find yourself with loads of ideas, and an absolutely fantastic idea for a novel. But then you'll find yourself suffering to rope it in, to get it organized. And worse than that, you just can't seem to commit, you can't seem to keep yourself married to the project. And then, before you know it, it has been six years and you still haven't written that novel you've been working on.

For those writers aspiring to write a novel, but having trouble committing, Project 52 is a way to set easily attainable goals.  The idea is simple.  There are 52 weeks in a year, and if you write one chapter a week for an entire year, you will have successfully written a novel.  We even provide a handy Project 52 spreadsheet outline.  Just plug it in, and then start writing.

Using a spreadsheet in general is a great way to outline your works. If you are familiar with making spreadsheet, you realize there is a lot of potential for organizing, categorizing, sorting data, and even auto-filling in data such as word counts. If you find it useful, feel free to pass your thanks on to author Neal James, as we borrowed the idea from him. 

Now, quit reading and get to work on that novel.
