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, January 23 or Saturday January 26β€”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! Put me down for both. I’ve got a 15K writing goal for the month and I have a feeling it’ll be done on those days.

      Laura, almost time to hoe into that 15K writing goal (or add to it, if you already have been). See you tomorrow in the usual place! πŸ™‚

    I’m in for Wednesday, Jan 23rd. I’ve been anxious to try this again but my schedule has not been cooperating. Looking forward to checking in with everyone while we crank out some words.

    I really missed this last month!

    I’ll be here on Wednesday, at least. I’ve got roleplay stuff that needs writing. I’ve also got some freewriting in progress (which is just another name for “pantsing,” in my book). πŸ™‚

    I’m really looking forward to this!

      Be sure to wear your pants while you’re pantsing it tomorrow. This is a family-friendly blog.

      LOL!!! Have always wanted to say that. πŸ˜€

        I’m sorry to say that I might not make it after all. I have a pinched nerve in my left wrist and have been one-finger typing. Needless to say, it’s verrrrry slow going. πŸ˜‰

        I’ll be here in spirit. You can count on that!

          Lois! I know all about that pinched nerve business. I’m still recovering from a pinched nerve in my neck that affected my right arm. I wish you every bit of luck with getting your fixed!!

          Glad I could at least give you a giggle with my naughty joke. πŸ˜€

          Love ~ Milli

            Mine first hit me on New Year’s Day. It went away for about a week, but it came back. In fact, I’ve had them in both wrists, but right now, it’s the left that’s suffering.

            Haha! I did! πŸ˜€

      • Lois

        Which I see you recently suffered from, as well. Hope yours has gone the way of the dinosaur by now. πŸ™‚

          Mine is much, much better. Except that now I’m packing and deep-cleaning my house for our move next month and it tends to flare up again from all that activity. But not as bad as it was at its worst, thank goodness.

    I’ll be here part of Wednesday and all of Saturday, after this show I’m taking the week off so taking advantage of any chance to write!
    Hope the Kiwi’s are joining us again!
    Looking forward to it.

      Yep, those audacious Kiwis are not only joining us again but they’ve already kicked off the show. πŸ˜€ Glad to hear you’ll be with us both days this month, Jo, even if just partially on Wed. And Whoo-Hoo about the week off!!!

      Love ~ Milli

    No “live” page yet, but the Kiwi crew have kicked off! Erin, Rachaal and Renee, on the way towards 10k. I went to a hen party last night, so not entirely convinced I’ll make it to 10k, but I’m going to give it a go!

      Welcome Renee & Kiwi crew! πŸ˜€

      Looks like next time I’ll need to schedule the check-in page to post about 4 hrs sooner than I had reckoned. Meanwhile, I’ve got it up there for you now – go to the home page and look right underneath my sabbatical post to find it.

      Cheers. Happy Writing.

      ~ Milli
