Write a Novel in Nine Weeks

After the rush of Figment Daily Themes is over and I finish a big research project for my English Composition class, I'm going to write a novel in nine weeks.  I've never actually finished an entire novel before.  I usually get distracted by writing about new ideas, chatting with friends on Facebook, and "lazy writer syndrome".  But lately, I've been really wanting to actually sit down and write just one book and then complete it.  

I found a neat book on Amazon a few days ago: How to Write Your Novel in Nine Weeks - Bill Dodds
