A Round of Words in 80 Days

Hello internet!

I just tried to come here and I failed.  I got the name wrong.  The name OF MY OWN BLOG.  What do you think it means?

I'm here today because I've joined aa very cool writing challenge started by a writer friend named Kait Nolan. It's called A Round of Words in 80 Days.  Basically, one states a clear and measurable daily or weekly goal, and the challenge to meet that goal runs 80 days.  I have a novel half written, and I've been noticing lately that it does not finish itself. 

So my goal, clearly stated, is this:
I will commit half an hour every single day to writing.  Less specifically, I plan to have my first draft finished by the end of the challenge, since I need less than 30K words.

Sara- thinking of blogging, not sure what to say, but thinking about it

Hello stranger!

Missing you.

Best of luck on the challenge. Happy New Year!

Hi Sara!
It's great to see you.
I think about blogging too. It's just, I don't seem to get there lately. I'm thinking of starting a new blog, with less of my personal stuff on it.

I found your new one, too! I'll visit you there soon.

Hi Deniz!

Snippets? Will there be snippets?
I have to catch up on my reading, I guess. So, I guess that means I might see some of that historical you're working on?

Cindy said...

I've been watching your blog and thinking about you. How do you feel? Is it hard? How's the recovery coming along? Email me?

I was at my in-laws the other day and someone said your Mom was asking about me! Does she drive all the way to Halifax to work? (Anyway, tell her hello!)

Eek! If I think they're share-worthy. I still cringe every time I open up the doc and start editing. And the siren song of the internet is so strong...
