Another Pledge...Please Do Your Part

I've decided to give myself a huge birthday present. I'm going to give myself one of the best stories every told. (Well, the current version. I'm sure I'll find other things to revise before it goes off ) My birthday is in a week and a half. I am pledging in front of all of you to have my story (TCAFS) completed by that day. I have plenty of incentives (it feels like it's been too long already, I want to enter it in the GH, I want to send out queries, I want to move on to the next couple!) and I have plenty of chances to write (my 100 words a day challenge, my 301 words a day for the month of October challenge, my weekends and evenings). I've been making steady progress all week and I'm psyched about finishing now. I KNOW I can do it. Malcolm and Heather deserve their happy ending. They're whispering that it's time.

So, I ask you to hound me, er...encourage me to complete my task. Ask me how I'm doing. Ask me if I made my word count for the day. Harrass me if I tell of slacking off or if I start whining. Because even on my worst writing days, this is still the best job in the world!

Thanks, Kristen! I haven't written yet today...stayed up late last night writing though! And now I'm about to start my words for the day.

Happy Birthday fellow Libra--my birthday is the 11th. I think finishing your book will be a great present!

Kelly said...

We can hound each other as we both seem to be doing the same thing over the next week and a half!!

Good luck!

Cat, mine's the 9th. The more I think about it, the better I like the idea of finishing for my birthday. It's just the present I want...well, besides a book contract.

It's a deal, Kelly! Let the hounding commence!
