Revving up...

I've added all the participants' names with links to their blogs (apart from the blogless two) - drop by and offer support/teasing/threats, as appropriate.

The Koala is busy with submission prep for her manuscript and Bak to Skool dramas for the little koalas. She greatly fears she may not actually be sending anything out this week. Which means...yes..the shocking may come to pass...The Koala will be unable to approve of herself. And in the very first month too. *rushes back to draft query and starts editing* Nope, still not there. *mumble*.

In fact, I wonder how many points I've got... 4000 words, check. Edited more, check. Entry to Jason's, check. New website, check. Beta read, check. What else can I drum up by the end of the week, I wonder... Might be time to flick out a few short stories back out into the Big Bad World.

Well, nobody promised it was going to be easy...

Neener neener! I think I'll hit 4k today. I'm at 2961 at the moment! Hah! (Of course, this is due to lining through anything I changed, but I won't tell if you don't.)

Is it over yet? *sigh* I think I'm racking up all of my points in the first month. Can I pretend this is now February?

I counted my points up this morning, but still have a few things to do this week...

This is MDames60. I'm not blogless. Visit me at http://www.maryanndames.com/blog.htm. Like Sarah, I'm racking up a lot of points this month.

I did something a little odd this month, I'm not counting anything before I knew about the Koala Challenge - so before January 18th.

I don't normally keep a running count of how many words I've written, so I had no idea how many points I'd amassed as far as wip writing. I could have counted up my article and short story submissions up to that point, because I keep records of that, but I figured seeing how well I did from the 18th - 31st would be a good way to gauge for myself... If I hit four or five, I'm okay with that for this month. Next month is another story, though.

So, what happens if the Koala is displeased with herself?

Thanks for the links - I'm planning on getting everyone up on my sidebar by the end of the month so I can have a handy-dandy way to follow all your progress.

Good work, all. Mdame, I'll link your blog - couldn't see a link before. Merry, you can count words from before 18 January if you have some idea of what you did!

I have hit my 4k and hope to make it to 8k, although it is also to be hoped I finish story 1 before that word count is reached.

Hey McKoala,

That's okay, I'm kind of using this month's as a way to see how much I can get done in that 2 week time period, so I can set my own markers for next month and push myself to write/submit more. So it's really more about me than you guys - I'm so selfish :-)

Yikes. Everyones soaking with points and I am working just to get to 2. :(

I guess, No donuts for me.

No worries, Aniket. We'll ALL have months like that, I bet.
