Another goodie from Inkygirl.com!


Yes, I am signing up for the 1,000 word a day challenge. As soon as I read her caveat that it's "six days a week" I realized that pretty much covers my sick days.

I'd like to keep the habit of writing every day. I got back into it over Nanowrimo and wow, that felt good. I also missed five sick days. Big deal. This is not some ironclad lose-points if I miss a day thing. It's a commitment to write a thousand words a day, and the sick days happen when they do. I'll keep trying. I'll at least think about doing it every day when I decide if this is a sick day or not.

I got a lot more done this November than I ever expected to. So I just put this in my footer -- now let's see if it appears.

Also with the definition of the challenge, days that I spend editing are days spent writing. Therefore if I find that I'm not capable of separating a day into "a writing session and then edit something else in second session" and it works better to edit in an immersive process, then rough draft in an immersive process -- it's all writing. A thousand words edited counts as my writing for the day for this challenge.

Go for it! I noticed that the whole post turned into the link but it doesn't do that in the footer.

Yay link still works now that I added the /a code to it. Whew!

Wow, good luck on that challenge. You were so productive in November! That's a solid, sane attitude. Good luck also with Kitten's submission challenge, I hope the one you pick gets published.

Mom self-published and self-distributed her book in 1999 without an agent. I think I was the only supporter in the family. I knew she could sell out the 1st edition because she talks to everybody and she had a built in audience at church. She hasn't been so pushy with the 2nd edition after she made back her investment, everything else has been pocket change. I don't think she wants to print a 3rd edition even though she only has one or two boxes left.

That's neat though, congratulations to her! It can be very profitable to self publish. My plan is to go all-out for pro publishing first, then if all possible markets bump it, knock it down to small press and go around again. Just do it systematically.
