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.
