100 words for 100 days

The local RWA chapter is having a little writing dare of sorts. We're charged with writing 100 words a day every day for 100 days. You can write more than 100 words, but you can't write less. It officially starts tomorrow and ends May 13th, assuming you write every day.If you don't write every day, meaning that you skip a day of writing, your 100 days starts over again. It also doesn't include blogging or email or any other multitude of things. It's writing as in writing a story. It's not brainstorming. It's not revising. It's writing 100 new words.

The paragraph above is 100 words.

I believe I should be able to at least attempt this. The theory is that if you make it part of your every day routine, like brushing your teeth or taking a shower, you'd manage to do it all the time after that. I'm not sure if that's true, but I would like to try.

Now, I know some of you are also trying to write (I'm looking at you frabjouslinz.) So maybe you'll want to try too. I'll be posting my progress every Monday to keep me honest.

Woman, you're on fire at the moment. First all these journal entries, now 100 words a day of story writing? Fantastic. You go for it, the more writing you do the better, says I.

I'm going to give it a try too. I know 100 words isn't much at all to a writer, but my internal editor's got me in a headlock and this might be just what I need to wriggle away from her. And after doing 100 words a day for 100 days, I could have, like, LOTS of words!

Gah - I can't take any more pressure on "have to" right now. So I'm not going to do that. I'm trying to be happy with myself when I do write, instead of feeling guilty or punished if I don't. So go you, and I'll keep chugging along on my own on the sidelines.

Well, I suppose that's ok then. =p
