unleash your story

For all you writers out there who need a little more motivation to get your word goals in, I suggest participating in Unleash Your Story for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. For the month of September you set a word count goal (or book goal, if you'd just like to read) and if possible, put down some money for a good cause. There are also prizes, like critiques from agents and editors! So not only are you getting your story written, you've got incentive once you reach your goal! I see it as a win win situation here.

Debbie Macomber is the pace-setter at 30K words for the month and I'm going to join her in that goal. It's starts tomorrow, so click on the link and register right away. You can join a team or do it individually. I'm going solo on this one, but I hope some of you decide to write right along with me! If you don't want to register, donate to my cause through the same link below. Every little bit helps!

Support my efforts!

Best of luck to you on your 30,000 words in September. Really, that shouldn't be too bad. Let's see... That's only 1000 words a day. Using my super-fast keyboarding skills as a poor baseline of 20 words per minute that's only 50 straight minutes of typing. Figure in 40 minutes to make coffee, boot the computer and a little review of the previous day's work, that's only an hour and a half per day. Doable... :-)

Best of luck!

Way to go, Dyann. I applaud you and your skill at finding new ways to motivate yourself. And to raise money for an excellent cause to boot. I am happy to make a donation to support you. Keep up the good work and happy writing!!

I also checked out your link regarding the horses and was appalled by what I read. You can rest assured that all of my representatives heard from me!

Thanks Maura! You're the best!

And yes, when I saw that link regarding the wild horses I just had to do something. I grew up riding and had two horses. They are wonderful animals and it's just not acceptable to exterminate them. If I had a ranch I swear I'd take them all in!
