BIAW (Book in a Week)


Want to kick start your book, or maybe finish it? Have you tried a BIAW?

There are a lot of variations on this.

Kiss of Death http://www.rwamysterysuspense.org/ offers its members BIAW four times a year. You set your own goals, post your daily writing totals (accountability) to your team leader.

The Writers Group does one a month; sometimes a BIAW, BI2W or BIAM. Again you set your own goals and post your daily totals.

There’s 100 words a day.

There’s 250 Words a day Challenge. http://inkygirl.com/250-words-a-day-project/

NaNo does their BIAM in November. The goal is to write 50,000 words and you post your total during and at the end of the month. http://nanowrimo.org/

They also have Camp NaNo in July. https://campnanowrimo.org/sign_in

A couple of other sites:



I participate in some and find it helpful to push myself because of a commitment or a deadline. I find that I need a bit of an outline so I know where I’m going to get the 1000 or 2000 words in daily. If I’m editing it doesn’t work.

Are they worthwhile? I think so. It’s one more tool to help you get that book written whether it’s the start, the middle or the end.

What about you? Have you tried one? Which one? Did it help? Have you considered it?
