A holiday weekend challenge for you all!

I challenge you to move up on the region scoreboard by at least 5 ranks or write 10k words by the end of Saturday, whichever is is more attainable.

If you look at the scoreboard, for many of you, five rankings is only a few words away so this is is a goal well within reach.
