11 months agoI'm watching our average word count slip farther from the daily goal which is the usual pattern after the first complete week of the challenge. But I'm here to say, don't give up if you're behind...even if you're behind a lot! Every word you write this month is worth it. Keep going! And if you'd like a chance to add in a burst of forward momentum, join us this coming Sunday for the Storm the Valley Writing Marathon! We'll work our way from top to bottom of the Valley will Write-ins all day long. Come for some or come for all! And make the extra effort to come out for write-ins in between too. It will keep you motivated for sure! See you around...
