Public Accountability: The Novel Enduro Begins

Today begins a two-week writing marathon.  My (rather ambitious) goal is to finish my novel-in-progress.  Here's a screen shot of my current stats (from Scrivener):
30,000 words to go; 10 business days to do it in.  That means 3000 words a day.  Folks, I've never written that much, that fast.  But I have another novel lined up behind this one, which I really want to get started on; I'm thirty-seven and not famous yet; I've carved out this space from a demanding day job; and the only way out is through.

Materials: Scrivener; my trusty Lenovo which I got at the end of last year's novel enduro; a new pair of yoga pants; typing fingers; playlists.  Plus a new cat tree, meant to keep the cats off my desk (wish me luck).

Cuing up my playlists... pouring the coffee... wrapping a scarf around my neck... and GO.

When you finish in two weeks, If you are interested in interacting with other Scrivener users, there is a public community for Scrivener Users on Google+. We have over 160 members. Since this is a public community you can read the community page before you decide whether or not you want to participate or not.

Finish up your current project and visit us when you are not supposed to be writing.
