Hi, I'm really just a lurker here. Although I've made a decent living as a proposal writer for years, I never considered that "real" writing as it is pretty devoid of creative flair. I have published a few essays and non-fiction pieces but I am not even Martini Club material, much less a respected published author so I lurk rather than posting but I want you all to know how inspiring and helpful I find this forum.

THANK YOU so very much for posting this link. I'd never heard of this challenge. It is a short enough time period that even procrastinators and people with commitment problems (and chronic rewrite avoiders) can approach this without dread.

I'm coming out of lurker mode because I find that sometimes being held accountable makes it more likely that I'll achieve my goals.

I'm doing this challenge. I doubt I'll finish, I rarely finish anything I start (not limited to my writing projects) but I'm registered, I sent my $10 and I've already been in a flame war on the forum there (SHEESH I have to become famous, I already have the people hating me thing down to a science).

Good luck to everyone else doing the challenge. See you at the finish line (I hope, I hope, I hope) on November 30.

MrsFourStarDave, not a "real" writer but in awe of those of you who are
