Today marks the first day in what will be a very big challenge for me. I’m calling it the “One Million Word” challenge. That’s right. I’m going to challenge myself to write 1,000,000 words. This is a big step for me, since I’ve never been very good at sticking with my goals… but I hope to turn all of that around, using this challenge as a starting point.
This blog will include lots of different types of writing – fiction, poetry, book reviews, craft tutorials, ideas, and, of course, rants and raves. As a teacher, a crafter, a voracious reader, a graduate student, and an advocate for social change, there’s no end to the topics that could (and probably will) show up on this fun little blog. At the end of each post will be a cumulative word count.
For those of you who randomly stumble upon these pages, I hope you’ll come back often to check up on my progress, and share it with your friends. I might need a friendly reminder to get back to work on this challenge now and again, so I hope you will help keep me motivated. I’m not going to lie and say that I’ll write every day. That’s just not a realistic goal for me. But I will do my best to post a few times each week… at the very least, I hope to not let this be just another unfinished project.
Word count: 228
