Marathon

I'm three days behind in these revisions.

I am on page 450.

I am sitting here and NOT MOVING (well, maybe bathroom breaks) till I finish this thing TODAY

Anyone else on a roll? Post your progress in the comment section if you like. C'mon! I don't wanna do this alone.

1...2...3!
:-)

Me, me!! Was just emailing with someone about writing-as-marathon metaphor (might post about it later), so I'm with you. It's 3.30pm here & I am going to keep editing/rewriting until around midnight.

I sent you an e-mail and will write a type of outline or what I consider something to help keep me on track for my new WIP that hit me yesterday. I've been thinking about it and hope I can make it work.

HOWEVER, they canceled school today so Lily is home! (oh, and there is NO snow!) :)

It's so hard to write late at night unless that's your schedule. I usually poop out by eight.

I am definitely a night owl, but I had a terrible night's sleep last night so am pretty tired. Had the CRAZIEST symbolic dreams. O.o

All dreams are symbolic.

The Marathon
Cripes! You're mentioning 400+ pages; I just put 1500 words in my journal so I won't lose my entry while I learn where it goes in this marathon. I'm just hoping they're the right words. You did say this is just about accomplishing goals, thank goodness. I think that puts me halfway to mine: Finish Chapter 1 in February. I have about 500-1000 words to go. Looks like I might make it.
But HOW do I submit them? Or do I? Doncha just hate newbies? Sorry. Help would be appreciated, tho.
Thanks.

Re: The Marathon
You don't have to submit them. Just send me your weekly progress (I like "accomplishments" better) by Sunday night (how much you wrote) and I will post it on Monday with everyone else's. If you have any more questions, just email me at sassenach43 (at) aol (dot) com and I'll be happy to explain further.

I'll post your 500-1000 word PWG on Monday and add you to the list. And no--I LOVE NEWBIES! I'm so happy you're joining in!
