In two days I will very likely go quiet for a month or so. Don't worry. I'll just be Over Here at TUF. My time in front of the computer will be spent Doing This Very Important Thing.
I've never made the 50,000 word goal in the allotted thirty days, but I've come close. For me the word count is immaterial. I'm less concerned with the typing and far more concerned with the momentum that writing like this gives the beginning of projects. However, I confess, it would be nice to make it just once. Either way, though, it is a great running start.
I'll check in with a word count as I can, but if you'd like to read the WIP, you can register at TUF and read it as it develops. Or, even better, you can register and write your own!
