Writing Challenge!!

Okay, fine... I admit it. I'm addicted to Crackrat. Oh wait, you already know that. And, sad to say, I have about half of my crit group addicted as well. There might be a problem with that. Sooo... for all you Crackraddicts as well as writers needing a kick in the tail, I'm offering a writing challenge.

Here it is... You have until May 19th to post your writing goal. Then, we're going to work our tails off for the next week. Whoever meets their goal by the highest percentage wins a prize. For the Crackraddicts, that'll be 1000 credits of my hard earned cash. For the rest of you, that'll be a $10 gift certificate... pick your pleasure- Starbucks, BN, etc.

Now... to sweeten the pot... I'm going to run this challenge once a month all summer. Those people who meet their writing goals EVERY month during the challenge will be eligible for a special GRAND PRIZE. I can't yet announce what it is because I haven't exactly cleared it with hubby, but if he says yes, it's going to be totally fun.

Distractions happen, especially during the summer when the kiddos are home, the weather is nice, vacations are happening, etc. So this is a little incentive to keep going. So start thinking about your goals and what it'll take to achieve them. :)

so, is the goal for one week?
At this point 100 word would be more than I've done in months!
Sounds great, though. I'll get back to you with a real goal.

Okay, Danica, call me ignorant but what is a crackrat? Packrat I get. It's when you can't throw away stuff. But crackrat? You can't throw away your crack? Just say no, Danica. And what does that have to do with writing goals? Is it because of crack we don't write? I am honestly perplexed....

My goal: Finish the proposal! Yikes, this one is taking forever.

That's just one week's goal.

For the month, it's get started on the book that's due, well, soon. But I'd better make it a bit more concrete than that, so I'll say: One more chapter on the book that's due, or one chapter on the YA that I need to hustle forward on.

Do not even ask me what else is going on this month. But the word "Graduation" does enter in....
