Full Moon Madness


I don't know if we're doing this, but there is a monthly challenge that was started on the WriYe boards called Full Moon Madness. On the day of the full moon you pick a goal for those 24 hours and write like a mad person. I was wondering if we could do it here too? The full moon isn't untilJuly 30th so I thought it would be a good thing to file in the back of people's head for a catch up day.

That sounds like a really good idea, considering that most of us already WILL be writing like crazy then. So, this sorta makes it official :D

I like that, especially since I hope to hit 100k on July 30th. That will help really push me and maybe I can even right my novel to completion that day.:)



...and he can do that, and she can do this, and he can react like that, and she can slap him, and he can yell at her, and then a dead body can come crashing through the ceiling... yippee! XD

Sounds good to me. I don't know if I'll have plans that day or not, but if I don't, then I'll definitely join in the madness! (Though I hope I'll be using to get ahead, not catch up - maybe I'll actually make it past 50,000 words rather than just to 50,000 words. After all, the way my story's going, I think it's just getting started! :D)

I'll try to be up for that, but it's a Monday so I might actually have a lot of homework to do on that day.

I guess I'll see how much homework I get just before that weekend, try and do it all (or all of it due on or before Tuesday) and then pick a goal that I think I should be able to reach.

So yeah, count me in. :D

I'm definitely up for this. I have an early lab shift, but after that, I have all day to write. This should be interesting, not only to see how much I get done, but how much chocolate I consume and how much of my (very limited) sanity I retain! :P

Just make sure everyone knows that this is a ONE DAY challenge. Make sure you set a goal the day before to something you know you can write in 24 hours.

I'm not here. I have no computer.

Maybe if its a sea day I'll do it on paper, but still...

I might have a mad writing day in a few days instead.

Good luck to you lot, anyway.

Wait so this is tomorrow, right? I'll go for 15k, I guess. Or should I do 20?

Edit: Actually I think I'll just go for 50k, however much that'll be.

Come on, Rossiter!!! I don't know how much you had to start with today, but I don't remember you having nearly as many words as you do now. That means that you've already come so far. You're at the home stretch! Go, go, go!!!! XD
