Countdown to June!

It's back again in 2011, the 50K in 30 Days!

The premise is simple, just set yourself a word count goal for the month of June, and then report back with your word count each week. We'll be having writing sprints in the Romance Writers of Australia chat rooms (join now if you're not already a member!) and blog posts from brilliant authors full of all the motivation, advice and the butt-kicking you need to get writing.

To sign up, just comment below with your word count, or send me an e-mail!

Would LOVE to sign up again but we'll see how I go towards my goal in May before I make any promises :)

Julia B said...

*lol* Good luck with your May goals! What are you working on this month?

Anita Joy said...

Julia, going to aim *high* so put me down for the full shebang of 50k. Never made it but great motivation :)

Julia B said...

Way to go Anita! I'll put you up now :)

Rachael Johns said...

Have decided I'm in. Not gonna start something new but need to write 30k in June, so will aim for 1k a day if that's okay :)

Hi Julia, I thought I'd put my name down to edit 50ks, but must have forget. So can you add me please.

Thanks
Sandie

Definitely put me down Sandie. Thanks.

Hey Suzanne,
I'm not running 50/30 this year. The lovely Julia has agreed to take up the reins for us.

But I will be trying to get some editing done. Glad to see you joining us again.

Sandie

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Oh, okay, Sandie... lol.. hey Julia... I'm here. :)

Thank you.
I'm almost read for the challenge.. plot subplots... I wrote my last completed manuscript last June. Yah.. let's hope it continues.....

Annie said...

Put me down for 50k
Thanks
Annie

Suzanne Brandyn said...

I presumed we'd all do 50k. lol okay...if you don't mind please put me down for 50k and the rest will be a bonus. :)

Suz, we're a little more flexible than Nano so we can be more inclusive and recognise not everyone can commit to 50ks in a month.

It's still about the goal setting, and then working towards those goals.

Julia, I'm in for 100ks of editing.

Julia B said...

Wow! Okay, everyone should be up on the site now!

@Diane - I had you down for 50K, but I've changed that now.

@Sandie - There was a technical error, we may have lost you! You're back now, and I have a spreadsheet so it should all be good now :)

Welcome aboard everyone!

Kez said...

I won't have a hope in Hades of making the 50K, but put me down for it anyway. It'll be good motivation!

Julia B said...

Never say die, Kerrie! I'll add you in now :-)
