  1. 1. Did you participate in the challenge? If you participated in the challenge, what did you think about it overall? I participated and thought it was a great idea. We tend to isolate ourselves in the writing process and this proved a fun way of seeing the struggles and triumph of others, using that sense of community for continued inspiration. 2. If you didn't participate in the challenge as were a member of the forum during it, was there anything that made you not participate (if you joined before the deadline for sign ups)? N/A 3. Did you keep on top of updating your word count throughout the challenge? If not, why? I started every day at first and then got more sporadic as the activity grew quiet. I stopped updating altogether after I reached the maximum goal. I still wrote but I didn't want to shove that in anyone's face. 4. What did you think of having the challenge run from March to August? Were these good months for you as far as participation goes, or are there better months that would have worked for you? If you didn't participate this year, are there specific months that would generally work best for you next year? It would have worked any time for me. Winter months might be better since a lot of people are stuck inside. 5. Was there anything about the way the challenge was done that you would suggest changing? Was there anything you would suggest adding onto it? Higher word caps...? 6. Is there anything else about the challenge you'd like to say overall? I liked it. I don't know if I would have written less if I hadn't participated in the challenge. I liked the spreadsheet. Nothing like cold blooded statistics and graphs to get you in the mood to write!
  2. I want to post my wordcount! username: Fluffypoodel words written: 410,467 is this your new total or the words to add? Final I know I maxed out at 250k, but I've never written this much in a six month span so I wanted to shout it out loud and say thanks for the inspiration!
  3. I want to update my wordcount! username: Fluffypoodel words written: 256,365 is this your new total or the words to add? New total So I read on the rules that the highest I can go is 250k. Can I ignore that and raise my goal to 350k?

  9. I've moved around a lot the last few years, (twice in a month and a half a couple years ago). It can be really tough settling in and making up new routines for your space. Your best bet is making up some goals that you want to accomplish and then just sticking with them. Build up the habits and they become a part of the space. You also have the opportunity to create a space that works for you. Its fun and cathartic and generally a good time. I will also say that during every move I've done, I've stopped writing for a bit. I always get back to it but it stresses me out knowing that I'm wasting the time. Trust that you'll get back into it and you will. Hope you have lots of fun in the new place!
  10. I took a class on teaching English as a second language and they used this graphic. Its a real eye opener, for introspection as well as external insight. Thanks for sharing!!
