I happened to look at a calendar today. Did YOU know that it's the 17th of May?! That means in two weeks, I'll have all the kids home. While a good thing, it also means that my productivity will go way down. So I am committing myself to a new goal:
Want to join me?
For the next two weeks, I will write 1,000 words and visit at least 10 blogs every day.
Sound too much for some schedules? Okay, fine. I’ll make two options and even throw in prizes:
Option 1: From today to the end of the month, write 1k/day and visit 10 (different) blogs/day. You are welcome to claim up to three passes should you start late or not meet your goals three times. And of course, you can always take as many make-up days as you need (e. g. write 2k in one day rather than 1k).
Option 2: Write 200 words/day and respond or visit every commenter to your blog.
ETA: This word count does not have to be a new piece. It can be revision, journaling, or simply blogging. Writing anything counts on this.
On Tuesday, June 1st we'll meet back and post if we met our goals. Those that took Challenge #1 will be entered into a drawing for a lucky reader’s basket of my design, prizes around here SOME PEOPLE (*cough, Shelley, cough*) have considered lucky. Those that took Challenge #2 will be entered in to win one of my favorite motivational books for writers: Walking on Alligators by Susan Shaughnessy.
I know there are other challenges, but if you're interested in joining me, I'll be so grateful. It will help motivate me too, you know. (Besides, I’m going to enter my own name into the drawing this time. It’s going to be THAT good. Ha!)
So prizes! Productivity! Who’s in?
If not, just leave a comment that you stopped by. Then I can visit yours and count it in my tally today. *grins*
