10K Day: Live, While It’s Happening! – December 12

“I Brake for Squirrels” (and 10K Day nuts)

WELCOME TO ALL those plucky writers who are participating today!

This is the place to post your check-ins.

To learn more about this event, check the special 10K Day section (see blog menu above). If you develop a case of writer’s block—or you need some extra ideas on what to write—you’ll find plenty of inspiring resources in the Write NOW! section.


You’ll regret it later (when you’re feeling fried) if you don’t take regular breaks. Even if you’re on fire with your writing, take your scheduled breaks.

Every two hours is recommended. Breaks are also for posting check-ins.


Comment moderation will be turned off for the day so your posts should appear right away. If you don’t see yours, try refreshing your screen.

Keep check-ins fairly brief:

1. You can mention your word count if you want to. If you’d rather not, please provide a general comment about your progress thus far.

2. You can also describe what you’re working on.

3. Feel free to mention how you’re feeling and how the day is going for you.

4. It’s always fun to hear what people are drinking, snacking on or listening to.

5. Check-ins only. Please DO NOT post your writing! (The comment section will become unwieldy if writers try to post stories/chapters from their novel.)

DON’T FORGET TO log out of forums, Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.

    My apologies! I forgot to post the check-in page on Friday evening. I got distracted by something wonderful . . . Brian got us tickets to see the Great Russian Nutcracker, performed by the Moscow Ballet, so that’s what I was doing last night when I normally would have been posting this page.

    And then I went to bed on Cloud Nine and slept in this morning. When the penny dropped, it was Yikes & Away. Sorry about that!!

    I trust everyone who’s participating will find their way here later. 🙂 🙂

      I think we all posted at the same time. I am soooo jealous. I bet seeing the Russian Ballet was totally awesome!

      So glad you were able to get away from work, home–all that stuff– and enjoy such a wonderful experience.

    Do you have the feeling your blog is being stalked today? Joe and I were just discussing that today’s thread wasn’t up and he told me you posted as I was telling him. How cool is that?

    Anyway, my plans are in the RSVP thread, but I did want to stop in here and wish everyone the best of luck today.

    May your words flow like a cascading waterfall and fill the pool of your masterpiece.

    Happy Writing!
