A March writing challenge

Good friend and fellow author Nancy Griffis has thrown down the gauntlet with a writing challenge for the month of March: write something every day. I know, I should be doing this anyway. Remember my goal of writing the equivalent of a page per day every week? As usual, life has gotten in the way. But for next month, starting tomorrow, I am really going to try to do this. I’m posting about it on the blog to hold myself accountable, at least to the three or so of you who read the blog, so if nothing else the fear of public shame will force me to write. By no means is this writing a novel in a month. It can be as simple as a blog post or a book review or a page in the novel, just as long as words get from my brain to this screen every day. I’m going to push for progress on the novel since I am about at the halfway point. There hasn’t been nearly enough death in it thus far and it’s time to make some characters suffer. (Hmm, maybe I’ve been watching too many Game of Thrones promos this week.)

Sounds easy, right? I plan to post an update on my progress each week. Anyone out there want to join in? I promise it will be fun!

    It might not make it to screen, but I plan to write everyday even if its only on post-it notes.

  2. This is a good thing Cindy to challenge ourselves!! And we understand wholly what you mean. “life getting in the way.” It does. And it makes it hard to commit to more when we’re already full scheduled. We will be crossing our fingers that it goes well with your writing. Lovin’ the character assassination possibilities! But like you, we are Game of Thrones fans & yes, love the uneasiness that comes from a writer who shows no prejudice towards characters where death is concerned. We have a bit of a Grim Reaper effect in our writing as well!! Many of our beloved characters have bit the bullet, dying untimely deaths. So let the axe fall where it may!!! 😉
