As I mentioned in a previous post, a friend of mine had successfully completed writing a novel in 30 days multiple times. But she had chosen not to publish.
This made me wonder, were there examples of a published author who could write a book in 30 days?
My wife bought me the definitive James Bond blu-ray collection (at the time). It had hours of extras including interviews with Ian Fleming (http://www.ianfleming.com/). In one of these interviews he had mentioned that he wrote his first book in a thirty day period in Jamaica. This was the case for each and every novel he wrote.
Well! Now I had two examples to motivate me that it could be done and be done successfully.
