July 25th Challenge


Note: burnttoast aka Sarah is internet-less, which is why she has not been around. :\ So, I am creating a few of my own challenges!


The world has decided that July only has 25 days effective immediately. Weird, huh?

Guess that means you have to reach 50,000 words by the 25th at 11:59pm. :) If you've been averaging 2,000 or so words a day, this should be an easy feat. If you've been slacking, however... then good luck to you!

I really, really, really like this idea. However, whether I can pull it off is another question. *Is at 30,000 words* /dies

Still, why not? I'll give it a try!

I thought I could do this until I realised it was the 21st today. Where did all the time go? O_O

But I'm gonna do this anyway, because I am in desperate need of motivation.

I'll go for it. I'm pretty close, but didn't get much writing done the last few days since it was busy around here. I'm telling myself that the time off will give me a bit of time to mull over ideas and now I can come back and type up the rest quickly. ;) At least I hope so!

I am insanely aiming to get to 150K by the 25th thanks to this, since I managed to make it to 100K yesterday. XD

I'll give this a go! 7k in... 4 days. Yeah, I can do that.

(But secretly I'll be trying to write 17k and get to the 60k I should be at by then if I really want 75k by month's end. That's 4,250 per day. I can do that...:-/)

Indeed, why not? I've already written more in a day, and I feel like I really need something to kick me and get me going. This will be excellent motivation! :)

I am sad to say I cannot make this goal by the end of today. All of 1 word is a bit ambitious of a goal for me as of yet.



I may be a pawn, but I'm on the seventh row.

I have an hour left on the 25th where I live, so I don't think I'll get it done. I do have a daily goal on my ticker for the number I want to be at by the time I log off my computer. I'm going to be doing more writing now....Bye!
