Letter Box Β© Natale Matteo Dreamstime.com

If you’d like to join us for one or both of this month’s 10K Daysβ€”Wednesday, August 29 or Saturday, September 1stβ€”you can start here by posting your RSVP in the comments section below.

Please specify which day(s) you’ll be attending.

Next step is to prepare yourself ahead of time so you’ll have the best experience possible. Mouse over 10K DAYS in the menu above and you’ll find more info.


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.

The Live, While It’s Happening! post will give you pointers on what to post for your check-ins.

Please leave your RSVP/comments below.

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™‚

    Whoo! *runs in again*

    Last month was pretty suck as far as words went. Every distraction happened the first 10K Day and then the power was out for the second. But I need words! Put me down for both!

      LOL! I’m going to expect you to RSVP first from now on. And after all the dust clears from your sprint to get here first, the rest of us can add ours to the list. πŸ˜€

      Yeah, last month sucked for me too. I’m doing some extra mental prep this time (which is all about getting in the mood for some FUN).

    I’m in for both days. I’ve got a huge, sprawling list of stuff I want to write scattered thither and yon around my office scribbled on all manner of sticky notes and notepads . . . and I have absolutely no idea where I’ll start. Talk about Chaos Control. πŸ˜‰

    Not sure I’ll be here this month. The kids are celebrating their third anniversary and they’re moving–both in the space of a handful of days at the end of the month.

    But I’ll be with you in spirit. πŸ™‚

      You’re always with us in spirit, no matter what you’re doing on the actual day.

      Good luck with all that moving and anniversarying. πŸ˜€

    *I’m a believer –lalala* You KNOW I’ll be here πŸ™‚ Did I tell you Care and Feeding is morphing into a book (eventually)? I think I have travel writing on my mind this month πŸ˜‰

    Wednesday for sure, we’ll see about Saturday.

      That’s exciting about Care and Feeding morphing into a book! And travel writing on the mind sounds good for me. πŸ˜€

      See you Wednesday (and maybe Saturday)!

    Hi All,
    Paula! Did you know the first LP I ever owned was ‘The Birds, the Bees, and the Monkees’? LOL. I’m a believer too, although been known to stumble and falter often on the path hehe. At least I’m still going forward on it!

    Wednesday for sure for me too. I’m going to ‘lay down the law’ over this unruly ebook child I’m writing πŸ˜€

      See you on Wednesday, madame! Good thing we’ve got a writing prompt about cop cars to help you warm-up, with all that layin’ down of the law you intend to do. πŸ˜€

    I participated in the July 28 10K Day and found it to be marvellous experience and I’d love to do it again. So, since I’m off work tomorrow, Aug. 29, I’d like to join in. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful opportunity for writers!
