November is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel, which is about 175 pages. That is 1666.67 words a day, or a little over 69 words a minute.
I think dictating a novel would count, too -- if so, you know where to go for the transcription. (There just had to be a tie-in). If I try this, I am definitely dictating and having it transcribed. After all, we talk a lot faster than we can type.
