ON MAY 23 OR 26

To participate, return to the HOME PAGE of this blog on the morning of your chosen 10K Day. (Each writer determines his/her own start time.) You’ll find a special post called 10K Day: Live While It’s Happening! and that’s where you’ll be posting your check-ins.

See you at the 10K! ~ Milli

P.S. For writers who are participating from overseas and who are ahead of the U.S. in their time zone: I always post the check-in page on the evening of the day before the scheduled date. So feel free to write within your own time zone and to post your check-ins. We’ll be glad to have you warm up the page for the rest of us. πŸ™‚

      Oh, totally. Coffee is definitely the first priority for a decent 10K Day. LOL!

          Too funny! Maybe I really should come up with an animal that suits your personality. I’ll have to think about that. . . .

    I just found out two days ago that I’ll be working that weekend as well πŸ™ (I was supposed to work on my birthday weekend, but managed to get out of that at least.)
    But I’ll be cheering on everyone else on both 10K days!

    Hi, I’ve been chasing my tail lately. But I’d like to do both day, just not sure. But for sure Saturday. I have a new idea for a story. “Are you getting zits from your horse kissing you on the cheek?” Or “Don’t wear lip gloss when you kiss your horse”.

      Peache! I was about to email you today to say where the heck are ya, woman?! But you beat me to it with your RSVP. Now we can proceed with the event. πŸ˜€

      Your story titles are a hoot! Makes me want to read the story even though I’m not a horse person.

      By the way, you were curious about how my retreat turned out. If ya wanna read about it, go to the home page of the blog and you’ll see my post there (called The Mini Writing Retreat That Morphed). I do believe you’ll be fascinated.

    I have it in my saved box waiting until my company leaves this week so I can read it with out interruptions. Just remembered what I had to do on Wednesday. Dentist appt. But I can still work around that on 10K if nothing else comes up. hugs back.

    I am going to try this on Wednesday. I am a fairly new writer and will count even a portion of the 10K a success. Just want to see what I can do.

    Ack! Turns out I have two webinars to attend tomorrow and one of my projects is taking way longer than expected (“plug and play” applications are often not so). Looks like I’ll have to sit this one out and join you next time. Good luck, everyone!
