In 2016, I won the Get Your Words Out writing challenge for the first time, with a Light pledge of 75,000 words. Having accomplished that (even if it was at the last minute), I am eager to get going on 2017! I’ve bumped up to the Modest level pledge, requiring 150,000 words in the new year- that averages out to 411 words a day, which I think is manageable. I don’t anticipate that I will actually be writing on a daily basis, as in the past that has been a quick road to burnout, but I would like to develop some kind of a regular writing habit in 2017.
As of today, Day 1, I am above par at 1,068/411 words- I dashed out a few paragraphs on my HP fanfic From Valley Broad as well as part of my Recent Reads #3 post.
After much consideration, I’ve decided that I’ll be linking my fanfic here, as well as any original fic that I get polished enough that I’m comfortable sharing. The files are hosted on Google Docs, and anyone with the link is able to leave comments, something I wholeheartedly encourage! I expect to be discussing my AU choices for the fic in the future, as I do more in-depth reviews of the Harry Potter series and explore the world in detail.
Are you participating in GYWO this year, or any other writing challenges? Let me know in the comments!
