I’m going to try to do do Kate Cavanaugh’s MilWordy challenge. Oooo, what’s that you ask? Well, I just so happen to have a video that will explain exactly what it is, handy and dandy!
So, once you’ve watched that, you’ve garnered the fact that this is a challenge to write one million words in a year. I thought about doing this before, but I got distracted.
I’m honestly crazy for trying right now, what with the fact that I have kids who distract me so frequently that I know it’s going to be really hard for me to do.
But… I figure… even if I only get half of it? Even if I only write 500,000 words in a year.
Dude, that’s 500,000 words in a year. That’s a big whopping amount of words.
I have a few things that I’m going to use to get through this – first of all, I’m going to let the people on my writing Discord (INSERT LINK HERE) know what I’m doing. I think that having them keep me accountable is going to be a great way to get things going.
Secondly, I have a pretty cool spreadsheet that I plan on working with, tweaking, and hopefully making perfect for the situation. I really enjoy my stats, writing down things. Seeing how I’m doing.
And third… I’m going to be telling you guys all about it. I’ll probably update y’all once a week, and then one overall update for the month. I figure that the best way for me to do this is to just make sure that I’m accountable on as many venues as possible.
So… I’m also going to have it on my Instagram (INSERT LINK HERE) if you guys wanna to follow along there. There will probably be short videos as well, on that front.
Until next time, y'all! Keep writing and writing, and keep being awesome! Author Amanda McCormick Instagram | Twitter | Facebook Page| NaNo Page | Tumblr | Blog Masterpost | My Writing Group |
