So the objective here is solely progress; being able to finish, going the long distance, and so forth. It's certainly not for the undedicated, but it's worth a try. To put 50,000 words into perspective, that's about 200 standard book print pages. In a month. And to make it better, November 30th, the final day, is my Birthday. Cuss yeah.
More info on that here: [link] If you end up joining the forum (lot of interesting stuff there, go ahead and join) my username is Songdog. Tell me your user and I'll add you as my 'Writing Buddy'.

Challenge for commenters/watchers: Post a list of your obsessions in writing or drawing (for example, if you have a habit of always including a random crow in your writing, add that to the list) Was a fun exercise we did in class awhile back. Just for fun and self introspection
