The Ten Day Draft is Here!
It’s time to begin your next great adventure…
It’s time to write a novel! Of course, that’s easier said than done. Writing a novel comes with a whole slew of difficult tasks and intimidating obstacles to face. Even if you’ve been trying for years, it’s likely you’ve never completed that coveted first draft.
That’s where The Ten Day Draft comes in! Through a simple ten day challenge, this book will help you break through the mental barriers that are preventing you from writing a novel. Along the way, it’ll guide you step-by-step through every stage of your first draft, so you’ll never have to wonder—what comes next?
What is The Ten Day Draft?
Back in June I published my first book, The Ten Day Outline, and I’ve been planning for its sequel ever since. While outlining a novel is certainly a big challenge, it’s nothing compared to the intensity and difficulty of writing your novel’s first draft—especially in only ten days.
However, it’s also not impossible, especially considering I did it twice while writing this book!
The trick is having a guiding hand to lift you up when you feel down and cheer you on when you’re at your best. That’s the real purpose of this book, and why it makes it possible to write your novel in only ten days.
Of course, this book isn’t just your cheerleader.
It’ll also teach you how to:
- Grow your cast into beloved characters.
- Keep your draft moving using story structure to guide you.
- Set realistic goals that push you, while still being achievable.
- And create a first draft without spending years struggling to make work!
Like its predecessor, The Ten Day Draft is fit for both beginners and advanced writers—really anyone who is sick of their novels taking far too long to complete.
So, if you’re ready to jumpstart your writing process and finally have a finished first draft in your hands, I’m confident you’ll enjoy The Ten Day Draft!
Inside, you’ll learn how to:
- Manage your mindset and avoid the crippling burnout many writers face.
- Use story structure to guide and strengthen your writing process.
- Keep your ideas fresh, even after writing thousands of words.
- Craft a compelling story using a system you can repeat for future novels.
- Bring it all together in a final first draft just waiting to be polished and published for your readers!

Thoughts on The Ten Day Draft is Here!
This looks really useful
I’m at the moment looking into if I can combine fantasy-adventure with feelgood, with my version of orcs, normal humans and half-breeds, demons such as Prince Stolas and Bune, folklore creatures from all across the world and a bigger focus on platonic love/rag-tag families than romance which I normally see in feelgood stories. Aaand more puns that might be socially acceptable. I have various scenes and character backgrounds planned out, but it’s a bit tougher tying it together…
I have started a short Christmas story that I would really like to be a book. A Christmas romance.
That sounds lovely Lisa! I hope you’ll give the Ten Day Draft a try. If everything goes well you could have your book published in time for the holidays 🙂
I’m planning on writing a fantasy series inspired by various mythologies around the world. I’m not sure if it’s YA or Adult, but I’ve only just started so I’m giving myself some time 😂
Thanks for sharing Marrill. I’d say wait until you’ve finished writing it before you pick a genre, especially if you’re unsure. You never know; you may end up writing a story that crosses genres!
hi! looking at the dates of all the replies im a bit late, but i just found your website, and let me just say thank you. all of these great resources have helped me a lot, not just with my writing, my confidence as well! im a young writer and planning a book of futuristic fantasy or arcanepunk i think the name is. Thanks for all the great advice!
You’re very welcome Birdie :)!
I’m currently planning a children’s fantasy series! Im having a little trouble with writing it at the moment! Really hope I can get my hands on your book!
Good luck Sasha!
I’m thinking of writing a magical realism novel about a teen girl who still has an imaginary friend. I’m not sure when I’ll get to it, but eventually.
I am planning a paranormal alternative history. Good luck with NaNo everyone!
Thanks Melanie! That sounds like a cool take on the historical fiction genre 🙂
I have been struggling to complete my book and this Ten-Day Draft seems to be the solution to my problem.
I am working on my NaNoWriMo novel now. I am partnering with my brother to co-write it with him so I am taking a little break from the series I am planning as well. Our NaNo story is designed to be a action/adventure/thriller taking place in Atlanta when a detective realizes a string of domestics and suicides are connected through a very unlikely source that could soon spread nationwide….
That sounds tremendously exciting Jordan! Especially since you and your brother are writing it together. 🙂
