Word Count Trophy!

I love a good competition!!

It seems I've got Lag-itis, other wise know as Dragging-Your-Ass-itis when it comes to writing. Notice the word meter. Only gone up by 300 words. Sigh.

I am not alone with this affliction; one of my crit partners is suffering from it too. The cure? How about a word count competition!

Okay, the rules:
  1. 750 words per day for one week.
  2. each day is done in a separate doc and emailed that night.
  3. the one that meets the goal or beats that goal by the highest % wins the word count trophy and bragging rights on her blog!
  4. NOTE: quality is key, not just quantity. Gotta be good work. We'll know if the other is cheating by sending crap. :)

May the most productive writer win!

I'm gunning for ya, Sally!

Hey Mandy, wanna play too?

Gotta go write,

M

Um, Melissa? You've been tagged! Go to Divas and read my post on tagging for the rules! Then go see my blog! But give me some time because I haven't done my 8 things yet! :)

I wish I could. Maybe next go 'round? Right now I'm not concentrating so much on word count, but on finishing this damn proposal. I can't even figure out exactly what it is they want me to send. Waaah!

I'm in *such* a weird mood today. Everybody just look away . . . ;)
