The last weekend of February brings to a close a four week writing challenge I’ve been running. The idea of running it this month was to give everyone a boost after the busy Christmas / New Year period, but it’s been be a bad month for many with house moves, book launches and work demands. Still, some people aced their totals in the first week or two, and most managed more words than they’d have without the challenge.
And that’s the point – to write more words in four weeks than you normally would – so I’m pleased to see people’s totals creeping up.
Because of World Con later in the year, I’ll be waiting until 2011 before I run another (and I just might go back to the more successful mid-year timing used in 2009). Having said that, I’ll be running a private one for myself before then as I’ve had a terrible February and have done hardly any writing!
