20 page challenge  
Tomorrow begins my two week 20 page challenge, wherein the goal is to write 20 pages a day, not 20 pages in 2 weeks. :) I'll be keeping tabs on it at toonowrimo, where anyone else participating in the 2 week challenge is also welcome to post.

I'd had great plans to at least finish the second chapter of HANDS OF CHANGE (hereby abbreviated to HoCh, to differentiate it from HOUSE OF CARDS, which is just HoC) so I could start fresh with writing full chapters beginning to finish. OTOH, there's something to be said about quitting in the middle of a chapter, because usually I know what's going to happen next. :)

Ted got the complete Sharpe's collection for his birthday, as well as the complete animated D&D series from the 80s, so he got up early yesterday morning to watch cartoons. *laughs* He's such a cutie. :)

miles to Dunharrow: 64

hmmm guess I'd best figure out what my two week goal is then, huh? D&D cartoon! I remmeber watching that, and having issues where they got the rules wrong. But it was fun.

I see you have figured it out! YAY! :)

yep and now that there's a competition - I'll do it too. I swear I can't get anything done without a contest. Even if I'm not winning anything.

You are officially insane.

I'm just saying.
kitmizkit on January 22nd, 2007 10:20 pm (UTC)
But it's the good kind of insanity, right?

Does this have anything to do with you telling me that I agreed to write 100 words a day? I forget.
kitmizkit on January 22nd, 2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
Yes. That's exactly what it has to do with. A hundred words a day, Monday through Friday, for two weeks. :)

Wait, what? Starting today? Does this count? :)
kitmizkit on January 22nd, 2007 10:31 pm (UTC)
*I'd* be unlikely to count it. :)

Dear God, 20 pages in one day... I'm glad to get seven in one day!

kitmizkit on January 22nd, 2007 10:28 pm (UTC)
-grins- I can keep it up for a while and then kinda flatline. I'm hoping aiming for a chapter a day (my actual goal, which is more like 15 pages than 20) will keep the momentum and keep the brain from frying. We'll see! :)
marissa_novo1 on January 23rd, 2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
Are they double spaced pages, or single spaced? Either way, it's damn impressive.
kitmizkit on January 23rd, 2007 05:56 pm (UTC)
Double, more or less. 25pt exact spacing, so I'm aiming for around 5K a day. A respectable amount. :)
