January Challenge: WIP Push

I know it's the beginning of the year; a time when people often want to start something new, but it can also be a quiet time; a good time to finish off things that have been lurking in your WIP folder!

So if, like me, you want to get some things finished before you get into any 'new' challenges this year, then drag them out and get writing along with me.

I found a great image to symbolise this month's challenge too - I love the idea of this being about a 'hot' WIP, whether it's steamy in a sexy way, or making your characters sweat in other ways, or perhaps the words are just so hot that they're pouring out of your brain and onto the page for you!

Let me know here if you're joining me this month, and if there's anything you need to make sure you get something finished, or at least progressed!

As for me, I've picked my old Mechanics sequel to work on, and today I kicked it off by reading through what I had so far, editing a bit along the way, and by adding 269 new words to it, which might not sound like much, but for me it's awesome, because I haven't written a word since last March, so I'm feeling really good about this, and about working towards getting it finished this month!

So what I need from you guys is a bit of encouragement as I go, and also for as many of you to join me as possible. Whether we finish our WIPs or not, as long as we're progressing, then that's a good thing! And it's all words to count, right?

And I'll be checking in again with you in a few days to see how you're going, and offer up some prompts if that will help anyone move ahead!

I have so many WIPs I don't even know where to start, but the theme actually helps me narrow it down. This is also perfect, because I wanted to focus more on WIPs this year :D

Brilliant! I'm sure it will be helpful for a few of us to focus on WIPs a couple of times this year! Good luck!
