Could you write 100,000 words in 100 days?

I'm planning on giving it a go!

Once I've finished editing novel 3 (I'm pruning it to get it down to 100,000 words) I'm going to spend the rest of December plotting novel 4 and drawing up some character profiles so I'm ready to go on 1st Jan.

I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't written anything new since my maternity leave ended at the beginning of September and, although I'm itching to start novel 4, I've found it impossible to find the time to write. We recently bought a house and organising that, working full time and looking after the Spudling (now 14 months old and toddling about like a drunken John Wayne!) only leaves a few hours a night to sleep and very little else. I also need to start exercising again and I'm determined to find a way to work out 3x a week AND write 1,000 words a day.

How?

I'll reveal all soon...
