In today's post, Diana Peterfreund brought up a fab challenge by author Alison Kent. Check out Alison's Seventy Days of Sweat-- The Writing Challenge. The goal? Write your book in 70 days!

I signed up and the challenge starts tomorrow! :) I have a new YA that needs about 10k to be finished and I want to start a new MG. I'm still doing heavy editing, but when I'm taking a break on that I figured this would be a good way to keep my other projects moving.

If you sign up, let me know here and let's do it together! We can keep each other on pace and crank up the motivation.

I'll post my stats tomorrow and let's do a weekly check in (maybe each Sunday) right here.

I'm in, Jess!

I just discovered it from Diana P's blog too - it sounds ideal for finishing up my YA and getting moving on my next project. Sign me up for the Sunday check-in here!

Hey Jessica.

I saw the post on Diana's blog earlier as well and signed up. I'm excited, but I don't have too much planned on my new novel yet and I'm working on heavy edits for my current novel...same as you. Should be fun!

Wow, that's even crazier than NaNoWriMo! I'm trying to finish my novel that I started in June by the end of August, that's about 90 days.

All right! :) I'm glad I'm not alone.
