We're fast approaching the three week mark in this challenge. The time has quite literally flown by. Since we started we've sent over 450 tweets, gained thousands of fans, followers and rss subscriptions. We've also written around a blog post a day on various topics, and responded to several thousand direct messages. It's been very busy, and we're delighted with how amazingly supportive the online writing and reading community has been.
We're now over halfway through our first draft, coming in at 40,104 words this morning. If we carry on at this rate the first draft will be done in around half of our time limit, leaving the rest for editing, e-book cover design, formatting, and promotion. We think it'll still be manic, right up until day 90.
At the end of it we'll be putting it on Amazon's kindle store. We haven't decided on a price yet (though we did narrow it down to somewhere between $0.99 and £2.99 in our last blog post) but we'll make a call on this once we've tested the manuscript out on a few friends to see if it's any good. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the pricing issue. How did you set your ebook price/ what did your last ten ebook purchases cost on average?
We're taking a break from blogging for the rest of the long weekend, and we'll be back on Tuesday, although you can still find us on twitter in the interlude.
Keep reading & writing!
Dan and Sean
