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. Look in the website menu and you’ll find more info on how to prepare for a fun and effective 10K Day. (If you skip this step you might be disappointed with your results. Our tips are tricks can really make a big difference to the kind of day you end up having.)


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! ~ Jenny & 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 afternoon 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™‚

    I will so be here on the 19th. I’ve been doing a lot of freewriting, but I’m hoping to have some real story planning done by then. I’d like to start writing the second draft of Dark Horses. πŸ™‚

      Yay, Lois. I guess this means your wrists have improved. That’s great!

      I love the title of your story. Both thrilling and suggestive πŸ™‚

      See you on the 19th!

        Yes, they have! πŸ˜€ (But whether or not I shoot for 10K remains to be seen. ;))

        They are the underdogs, the dark horses… It’s a thriller!

        You sure will. I look forward to it!

    I’ll be here probably for both days. 3/19 for sure. The Saturday will depend on some travel we’re considering.

    Haven’t decided yet what I’ll be working on. I’ve got several choices. Hmmm. . . .

      I probably won’t be participating in the Saturday ones for the next couple of months. Jeff’s gone to 6-day work weeks, and Saturday’s his day off. But I’ll sure be here in spirit!

      Nice to have several choices, isn’t it? πŸ˜€

        I’m glad you think so. That’s originally why I added a Saturday to the monthly event. The Saturday 10K Day is not as popular as Wednesday (probably because people are busy doing their family stuff on the weekend). But at least we have it whenever we need it. πŸ™‚

          Actually, I meant writing choices, but yes! It’s great to have a couple of different days for the 10K Day, too. πŸ™‚

          I’ll likely also work on my Immortal Watchdogs on the 19th. I’m planning to work on both stories. Right now, they’re both in the planning stages, and I sometimes freewrite scenes or shorts to help me figure things out–or just to hang with the guys, you know? πŸ˜€

    Oh, yay! I’ll be working during the week, so the 19th is out for me, but will definitely be dropping by on the 22nd πŸ™‚

    I have quite a few ideas already for stories, so can’t wait to clear my schedule for the day and just write!

      Yippee! So glad you can attend this month. It’s fun to hear that you’ve got quite a few ideas for stories. Should be a great Saturday of writing. πŸ™‚

    Yeah, my conflict on the 19th just disappeared. I will be writing on the 19 until late afternoon. Saturday I put on my Mom hat and cheer on my oldest at a provincial competition out of town. Therefore one writing day for me this month. Now time to start preparing and figuring out where I left off last month. In otherwords, time to type up my notes.

      Don’t you love it when a whole conflict just disappears? Good luck with your prep and we’ll see you on the 19th!

    I’ll be here on the 19th, at least in the morning. I have a meeting at 12:30 that I couldn’t schedule any other time. But I’m going to see how far I can get before and hopefully have some time after. Can’t wait!

      Hi Charlotte,

      With you being such an early riser, you’ll probably be able to get a ton written before your meeting at 12:30. See you here on the 19th!

    I’m looking forward to my first 10k day. Excited and fearful. The most I’ve ever written in a day previously is 5k.
    Really pleased to have found this website – I think it’s a brilliant idea.
    Thanks J x

    I will join for the 22nd. It has been a while since I was full-on writing, so it remains to be seen how much I can do. But I will give it my best.

    Good luck to everyone participating.

      Hey Liam!

      Exciting news to hear you’ll be joining us for the 22nd. See you there (albeit you’ll be way ahead of us on the UK time zone). πŸ™‚
