Or call it a friendly contest. Let’s spend the week in motivational mode starting with a Challenge.
“Battle!” – Archangel Michael in Michael
This is a down month for some publishers and agents. Many close for the holidays and use the time to catch up on slush piles and submissions.
It is our chance to finish the manuscript, post on our blogs, or begin that new project.
All we need is to get around to it.
Here is your Round Tuit
so no more excuses.
To that end, I challenge everyone to record their totals daily. Whether it is word count on their wip, edited pages of a completed novel, posts on their blogs or comments on others, this is your week to brag. Or get goosed.
Every morning, I’ll post my numbers for the previous day:
- WIP word count –
- Revisions pages –
- Posts on personal blog –
- Comments on friends’ blogs –
You have twenty-four hours to comment with your totals. Whether it is all four (Zowie) or only one category, this is the time to gird your loins and get serious about that manuscript.
We begin tomorrow. Bring your steely-eyed, gritted teeth mode and settle in for a double helping of Determination. Cuz Sistahs and Bros, we are WRITERS.
