TAKING THE CHALLENGE

This is the thing, after joining up for NaNoWriMo I was reading an email on one of my group postings about this site she stumbled across a few weeks ago. Yes The Seventy Days of Sweat Writing Challenge http://70daysofsweat.com/wordpress .

So off I go to have a look at what this is all about, it runs along similar lines of NaNo, just that you have seventy days (well actually, it’s 93 days) to get your MS finished. Cool. I’m in that, so I joined up, now I start my serious writing on October 15, instead of November 1. Good news is I can use this extra time to get my WIP finished or near too before I start NaNo. I have decided to start a new MS for NaNoWriMo. Came up with a storyline, theme, hero and heroine this afternoon. The 70 Days of Sweat Writing Challenge runs from 15th October 2007 to 15th January 2008. The rules are simple, just write 750 to 1500 words a day, but you only have to write for 70 days out of the 93 days.

So this weekend is going to be spent getting my house in order, so I have the time to write, write, and write. Oh did I mention I’m also looking for some part-time work, nothing like putting some pressure on yourself. Oh, and also RWAustralia are running a Boot Camp in November I would love to do as well. Yep this writing is taking over my life. And loving it. (She say’s in her best Maxwell Smart voice.) HEHE.

So it’s housework (hate housework) this weekend, planning and writing from Monday. (plus applying for employment positions)
