#84 - June Writing Contest

I've kept some tickers and crazy imagechef doo-dads on my sidebar for what I've written in the month of June, but never explained to the general audience out there what they're for. I decided it was high time I should, since I only have - what? 8 days left? I'm sure you've all been waiting with bated breath . . . :o)

The long and short of it is that my fellow blogger, critique buddy, and BFF, Ali, and I decided to have a contest to see who can write more words in the month of June. Just between you and me, she's whoopin' my butt. But I'm not going to go down without a fight!

I've had a lot of things happen in the last few weeks that have been emotionally draining. Throw in a weekend trip out of town and a general feeling of despair when thinking about all the problems with my book, and you have a recipe for a dangerously low wordcount.

I got some general encouragement and uplift-ness at critique group tonight, though, and I'm going to give it my all over the next few days. Wish me luck, and check back often to see how I'm doing. Whether I post or not, you can count on me to make silly little imagechef thingies. (Can you tell I don't know what to call them?) :-D


  1. Good luck on your word count. I always lose the whole write a book in a month thing. I'm much more the tortise than the hare.

  2. I understand the "general feeling of despair when thinking about all the problems with my book." I got out about 3 paragraphs yesterday thanks to that phenomenon.

    I'm glad for the encouragement and uplift-ness at critque group. Keep going. You'll get there. =]

  3. Hey! You're rockin' Jenn! That's awesome.

    Congrats Jenn! Can't wait for lunch ... regardless of who is buyin' ;)

  4. I just found you through Tristi Pinkston's writing challenge!:) I thought I would say hello, and good luck on your work in progress!:) I was wondering what you write? YA? LDS Market? Mainstream Fiction? Anyway, I'm excited to have another blog to follow!:)

  5. I just gave you an award on my blog!
