I Need a Challenge… How About You?

As I get my ass back in writing mode and as NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) approaches, I thought now would be a good time to start #10KWeekendsforWriters up again.

It didn’t gain much traction the last few times I tried it and who knows if it will this time or not, but I’ve decided to go ahead and open it up for anyone who might want to, including myself. I definitely could use the challenge.

I will be using a timer for word sprints and I will be using Pacemaker.press to track my word count goals. If you don’t know what Pacemaker.press is, I urge you to look into it. It’s awesome and it has motivated me. I feel bad when I see the 0 and the did not write this day… Like really bad.

So, this is the way the challenge works…(You can read about the origins of this idea HERE). It’s Thursday thru Sunday night, ending at 11:59pm Eastern (because that’s my time zone). You add your name and info into the Linky down below. However, at the present time, the Linky widget isn’t working on my site, so please leave a comment down below until I can get the Linky fixed. You can use the hashtag #10KWeekendsforWriters on social media to connect with me and anyone else who chooses to participate. That’s it. I’ll be updating my word count, grousing about needing more coffee, etc… But my goal is 10,000 words by 11:59pm on Sunday.

Let’s write, shall we?

10K Weekends For Writers – February 2-5, 2017

Howdy, y’all!

I know it’s been a few weeks since I posted this and well, that was rather on purpose. I’ve been working through revisions on an older story and kind of lost my way. I wanted it to be better than it once was and while I thought I was doing the right things to make it better, I lost confidence in it, in me.

But, I finished the revisions and I need to figure out what to do with it. In the meantime, I have Black and White, Book 4 to finish and that’s what I’m working on this weekend. I’ve written the end and now I need to go back and write the middle. Yeah, I know… Just go with it.

So, I’m challenging myself and anyone who may read this to a 10K Weekend. I am also working on revisions of this challenge. I think I’m going to offer up a 5K Weekend For Writers, too. Not that I expect anyone to pay any more attention to that one than they do this one, but who knows. Maybe.

If, by a slim chance, anyone is reading this, here are the rules:

  1. Add your name to the Linky below
  2. Add a comment with your starting word count.
  3. Write new words. 10,000 of them from today until Sunday evening.
  4. Use the hashtag #10kweekendsforwriters on social media to keep track of me and anyone else participating.
  5. Have fun.

Any questions? Leave a comment or leave a message for me on Twitter/FB/Instagram, etc…

Let’s write!

10K Weekends For Writers – October 27 – 30, 2016

10K WEEKENDS-2-320

I have a book to finish. Down to the wire. A ton of words to write. And strep throat to go along with it. How fun will this be?

You should come join me. Either to lend support or suffer right along side. I’ll be happy with either!

This is for anyone who has words to write and likes to challenge themselves when kids and spouses and family and friends and housework and football and social obligations come calling, yet you still need words on the page! It’s a good way to get ready for NaNoWriMo next week, as well!

Just add your name to the Linky list below. Share the blog post so others can join. Leave a comment listing your starting word count and come back on Sunday night and leave your ending word count. I have yet to make it 10K in a weekend, but I’m always trying.

Don’t forget to use #10Kweekendsforwriters on social media!

Now… Get to writing!
