I've done it! I've signed up for the monthly writing race to 50k words. I have to admit... I've written way more than that, but I'm a re-worder, edit-crazed, self-doubting author. It will be a great challenge to begin a story and not stop till I'm 50k words in. Looking forward to the write-in's... hoping to meet some kindred spirits or at least a few people that are writing group worthy. Now to go choose a genre, and begin my outline. Let the journey begin!
