Writing With Friends

A fellow blogger - Elana over at Mindless Musings - has issued a writer's challenge. Since I've had trouble getting motivated about my WIP, I decided this might just the impetus I need to get busy. The idea is that we all aim for 500 words a day. I have volunteered to join the crowd, and its apparent that alot of other writers feel my pain. The list of participants for this endeavor has grown to a respectable length. Now I just have to put up a word count here, so I can keep track of my progress.

Another motivator I have found is a writer's conference that will be coming to Denver this September. Despite that fact that I have so much going on, I have set myself a goal to have a completed final manuscript by then. I've never gone to anything like this before, so I'm really excited and nervous at the same time. So assuming I get my final draft ready, how does one prepare to attend these things? Is there a dress code? Are jeans a faux pas? So many questions, so much research I'll have to do before then. First, its time to get cranking on today's 50o words. Thanks for the motivation Elana.

Hi Eric, I jumped in on Elana's writer's challenge too and saw you there (as well as a few other blogs I follow). I agree, this is going to be a great motivator for me, too. Better get on my 500 words! ;)

Good luck with 500 words! It's only about a page a day in TNR 12-point font.

I know, that doesn't help at all some days. But it really is doable. Think of it as warm up for NaNo in November!
