For the last few years my daughter has participated in Nanowrimo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month - you do what it says
I've longed to join in, but was afraid to complicate my aging brain by writing a long novel whilst concentrating on my degree work. However, since I'm taking a year out before I start my PhD, I'm going to give it a go this year, so, beginning tomorrow, I shall be striving to write going on for 2000 words a day so that by the end of the month I shall have achieved my 50,000 wordcount.
It'll be different, they suggest no revising and editing, which is contrary to the way I usually write, but hey, it's going to be fun and different. Cross your fingers and toes for me and wish me luck!
