I’m an introvert, and that makes it hard for me to accept challenges or pursue opportunities easily. I must cajole or even push myself to step out of my comfort zone in exchange for experiencing a first-time-something in an author’s world. Or repeat an action that has yet to become second nature to me.
This month I’ve decided – no more. I’m going to make myself and my word count accountable to the masses. It took two years to get to this point, but I signed up for SpeedBo!
SpeedBo is the annual challenge to writers from Seekerville to write a book in a month (you can read about it here http://seekerville.blogspot.com/p/speedbo-2016.html). I’m 35,000 words into my WIP (work in progress) and looking for another 35,000+ to bring Ella and Jackson’s story to an end. If I survive the March challenge, I may consider attempting NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which takes place in November.
I pride myself on my perseverance, but positive thoughts you may wish to send my way for this new endeavor are appreciated. I’ll give an update at the end of March.
