Tristi Pinkston, author of many books including Agent in Old Lace, has issued a challenge for April. In participating I have publicly stated that during the month of April I will complete 10,000 words on my WIP (Work In Progress) and 5,000 on my second WIP. (I have 3 in progress but will set one aside for now.)
If you want to check out what she and others have committed to, you can check it out here: http://tristischallenges.blogspot.com/2010/03/aprils-amazing.html
This is a great motivator, thanks Tristi!
