six moths to a first draft

A complete first draft can be completed in six months without throwing one’s life into turmoil.
Using one week to plan your plot, establish your six balanced characters and creating scene cards that have constant contained conflict, then writing two pages a day or at least 500 new words, it is entirely possible to create a first draft from beginning to end.

A first draft is not ready to send out to anyone. The book still needs a review of the original plan, at least two revisions and careful examination of word use (eliminating passive verbs, redundant information and wrong word used)
The 3by3 writing method also strongly suggests either hiring a technical editor, or getting a experienced editor (perhaps a college professor) to do it as a favor. A writer can not proof their own work.

About 3by3 writing method

The author of 12 books, half of them textbooks, two novels and three self help. has struggled with his challenges of completion, distractions, plotting and writers block. Finally after getting stopped I stopped and analyzed what was going on and spent a lot of introspection, research and reading trying to locate the source of these issues. The result of was the 3by3 writing method - a three step program to start and then continue the process of completing a story all the way to publication.
