Happy New Year, Writers!

It’s a new year and another chance for us to write ALL THE WORDS!

I pledge to be better at this. And I hope… Like really, really hope I can’t get more people involved. This could be such a fun thing, if I could just get it to grow.

So, the way this works is…

From today, Thursday, January 5th through Sunday, January 8th, you, me, whoever, writes or aims to write 10,000 words. Broken down that’s 2500 words a day for 4 days. It’s a lot, or it sounds like a lot. I’ve been averaging about 1000 words a day this week on revisions. I’d like more.

I have several WIPs going and haven’t decided yet which one I’m going to pull out and try to make some progress on. Yet. I’ll have that decided by the end of dinner.

There is a Linky at the bottom of the post where you can add your name and website, blog, etc…

You can grab the button from the sidebar if you’d like for your own site or for social media. The hashtag is #10kweekendsforwriters

Invite your friends or your enemies. I don’t care. I’d just like to have a crowd of people this year join in.

Leave a comment with what you’re working on or just with your starting word count. Or, leave a comment on social media (don’t forget the hashtag #10kweekendsforwriters) with your starting word count and throughout the weekend with your progress and with your final word count on Sunday evening.

If you have questions, feel free to ask.

Otherwise, get writing!
