MarPrilWriMo or 30k in 30 days

Tyler, Heather, and I are doing a 30k in 30 days challenge. The same rules as NaNoWriMo apply except we're shooting for 30k (at least) and the challenge runs from 3/09/09 (today) to 04/09/09. That's roughly 1k a day, not too bad.

We're all working on first drafts. I think Heather is about a third into hers and Tyler and I will be working on new novels. Gotta get those awful first drafts cranked out somehow.

Want to join in? Please do!

Let us know in the comments, throw a counter up on your blog, and get to writing! We'd love more company.

Side note: I feel way to cheery for a time-change Monday, but then, I didn't stay up late because of it. How's the time change treating you?


  1. Hey, what agreat idea - i'd love to join but i'm mad busy with school at the moment but you should post up a thread on the WC forum asking if people would like to participate - you can use forum for communication/discussions etc.

  2. I'd love to, but the timing isn't right this time! Have a great time!

  3. Good luck with the challenge! Enjoy! ;)

    Urgh.. The time change... But, at least it's still sunny out at almost six. :)

  4. Woot marprilwrimo!

    I was also very cheery for a time change Monday, but I'm pretty sure it had more to do with our new challenge than the time change.

    And judging by your counter it looks like your kickoff day is going well!

  5. It's ON! I just started book 2 today, so this is perfect timing!

  6. Thanks for all the encouragement everyone!

    Yay Christy!

  7. No time change for me. ha.

    I need to finish this draft. I'm going to get 30K or die trying. RAWR!

  8. Gonna give this a roll... working on a first draft and needed something like this to keep me at it. Thanks!

  9. Awesome Irene!

    We have a nice little group going now. Maybe a few more will join over the next week!
