September challenge anyone?

I promise I'll finish my updates on the Romance Writers of Australia conference soon, but first I just thought I'd put a writing challenge out there.

I've decided I need to finish the short contemporary romance that I started ages ago and so I've decided to set myself the task of writing 30k in September. I already put this out on Twitter and had a few takers but I thought I'd ask here and get anyone who is interested to ''register'' in the comments section.

We'll share our September goal - it doesn't HAVE to be 30k like me - and cheer each other on to reach it.

So, who's in???

Coleen Kwan said...

Rach, have you posted this to the 500 club?

I'm flat at the moment, so maybe this is just the challenge I need.

Oh dear... I'm so excited by the response and daunted too! Now that I've put it out there, I'm accountable to all of YOU but the up-side is you're all accountable to me too!

PS. Hopefully we'll get some more takers - the more the merrier I say :)

Lacey Devlin said...

I'd like to. I'm moving soon though so will have to see if that kills me first :-)

Bronwyn Jameson said...

Can I join in, Rach? I really, REALLY need to get back into writing gear. September sounds perfect.

Rachael Johns said...

Eugh moving! Hugs Lacey!

Bronwyn - OF COURSE you can join in. We'd LOVE to have you!! I'm stressed at the moment that I won't have worked out where to go next then, so will still be in a rut but I'm doing my best to get past it, ready to write up a storm :)

Count me in for 30K. With spring about to hit us I'll need the motivation to say at the keyboard!

Rach, count me in too. I'm aiming for 1k a day so this challenge is perfect for me!

I'm late, but I need to start a new story so 30,000 words would take me more than half way!
