The Final Day: Day 31

WOOT!!!! We did it! Well, we made it to the end of the month, anyways. Hopefully with a lot more words, perhaps even a completed first draft of something under our belts.

I'm so glad you all joined me this month in the August 40k word challenge. Writing massive word counts on self-imposed deadlines is always much more fun with friends :)

What's your word count? Did you meet your goal?

What's your plan now?

Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of our August 40K challenge! We need to write 1300 words a day for the next 31 days to meet the goal.

This challenge is about getting words written - first drafts, not polished finished products. Don't worry about getting it perfect, just get it done, and revise later. You can't revise a blank page!

Since I don't want to spend too much time writing blog posts when I should be writing my manuscript(s), all I'll post each day is "What's your word count?" - and you guys answer in the comments. If you're having problems or need help let us know!

Ready? Set... GO!

Thanks for Joining Me!

Hi guys - thanks for joining me in my quest to get my butt in gear and write 40K words in the month of August! For those of you who joined me for May 50K, it will be like that, but summertime, and less words since I have a bunch of stuff going on this month, LOL.

Use #Aug40K as a hashtag whenever you Tweet about it so we can all be sure to follow along with your progress!
