Happy July First!

Today I started yet another writing challenge such as back in April. Unlike November’s National Novel Writing Month, these so-called ‘camps’ encourage participants to set a goal that can be very different from fifty thousand words. I no doubt mentioned that this past spring. And once again, I decided to stick with 50k.

To hit that goal by the thirtieth of the month, that means writing 1,667 words every day. As a local friend noted, I tend to reach that like proverbial clockwork. Today’s beginning was no exception.

But I just realized today that July has 31 days (I’m not very observant ~grin~ or reliant upon the calendar). Rather than readjust my well ingrained thinking, I’ve decided to stick with the usual desired daily count. That way, a win is in the bag!

Are you doing anything that has you excited this month?

  1. Uh, yeah, July has 31 days! Do not cut out the 31st.

    When I was a child, I was so paranoid that July would lose the 31st, kind of like February only has a 29th every four years. It was child thinking, and I outgrew it.

    But yeah, I'm always aware that July has 31 days. I missed being born in August by only 9 hours ;)

    1. Thank you for the giggle. It's amazing the thoughts we have as children. I'm still outgrowing some, I think! Happy early birthday, my dear!

  4. You are prolific at writing, good at getting it done. Not so much me. I intended to write this month in my time off. I still do.
