10K days are FUN! And it’s a great way to find out you’re capable of a lot more than you think.
The goal is to challenge yourself to write 10,000 words . . . but the camaraderie and the spirit of trying will beat anything your Inner Critic coughs up to try to discourage you. Find out more by mousing over the 10K Day section in the menu above.
All I can say is just try it out. I have done Milli’s last two 10K’s and I have been surprised at how much I have gotten done. It is so rewarding to check in and see what every one else is struggling with or what successes they’ve had.
I started a book! Actually I starting by writing stories about my Mikey dog from the prompts in Milli’s book “Fear Of Writing” at our writing circle in the Texas Hill Country. I never really thought I’d write a book, but the 10K days are giving me the boost I need to blast away at the keyboard. Before I know it, I’ve written 1000 words.
This format is so good for me and I have felt such a sense of accomplishment (even though the last time I was about 600 words short of my goal for the day). Now that Milli is adding a Saturday I may do both days.
Now I feel like I am really writing a BOOK! Me! OMG! Thanks Milli this is the perfect venue for me. I love the support but I still don’t feel chained to my PC. And I can write in my jammies!
See you there,
