Big Buddy August

Comment here with the count you can reach in the month (remember to factor in holidays, finals, road trips, pajama days, hangovers, etc). I will check in with you every 6(ish) days to make sure you are on schedule, to push you if you aren't, and to shake pompoms at you if you are (Well, I'll probably shake pompoms at you either way).

Your count is up to you. There is no minimum beyond what you decide. But Big Buddy will be watching you! If you pledge 100 words/images, then every 6 days chime in to tell us that you've produced 20% of them.

This is not words to be done in lieu of something else. If you have a bingo, or a big bang, or a drabble-a-day, it all counts! Words/images do not have to be posted to count, they just have to be done!

I want to try something different. I want to see if I can get in 26 hours of writing in the month of August

Let us know how that works for you. Some months you're doing more editing/plotting/researching and doesn't result in many words, even if it is a lot of work, and you feel bad because you didn't hit that goal.

And um... GOOD LUCK. I'll go back to work now and stop rambling. :D

Thank you! Since I decided I'm going to devote Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to writing during the month of August (I'll be taking 3 classes at school so I really want to concentrate), I figured that those 13 days I would try to write two hours a day, thus 26 hours to get 6,000 words. That comes out to 230-240 words in the 2 hours. I'll probably surpass that goal though.

Sounds like a plan! I hope that it works well for you. Good luck. :)

50k sounds like a good baseline

Count me in for 3,100, and hopefully, the muse will cooperate.

It's been so long since I've written anything...
I will go with 5k, hoping I can get back to it soon.

31 days so 31k! I am, however, beginning to seriously consider upping my goal for next year instead of just 1k a day...
