Ready, set, write!

It’s time for you to unleash the power of your words. Write for 10 minutes, an hour, or all day. Just comment below with your daily word count. I can’t wait to cheer you on to victory!

If you’d like to have your writings from this week shared with other participants, then simply email them to me at and I’ll have my magical elves add them to the YOTB blog. If you’d like them to be posted anonymously, just remind me, otherwise I’ll give you all the credit and exposure. Or if you’ve posted them to your own website, then please share a link in your daily comments so we can follow along!

    Continued my children’s story about Julia and the space girl from the planet Marengo!
    Wrote for an hour…

    1. Great progress, Rose! I’ll have to tell you about my interplanetary experience when I see you Tuesday. Maybe Marengo isn’t too far fetched??

    1. Great post, Dawn! Sooo not jealous of moving though. My cats would not do well with all those house showings… or the crates. Looking forward to tomorrow’s adventures!

  2. Hi Demi. I worked on my blog post that will be sent out Tuesday morning. I worked for about 30 minutes until I was happy with it. The word count was 224.

    1. Ah well, necessity is the mother of… big word counts! You’ve got 8 days left to hit your goal, and I know for a fact you’re UNSTOPPABLE.

    1. Thanks, Laurie. There’s always a fear during this challenge that I won’t be able to write to hold up my end of the bargain. Something akin to “imposter syndrome” 🙂

    1. Yes, that’s free writing at its best! High word count, short time commitment. Gets the logical mind out of the way for the creative mind to shine through!

  3. Hi Demi, still editing and plugging through Chapter 8 (Sunday). No official word count to tally. I’ll try to be more accurate today (Monday) I’m always running late!)
