Blerg, okay so I *think* I’m on the better side of this darned flu. Yesterday after I finished up a slight revision, I pretty much just laid in bed, sweated and watched reality television. I still don’t get the appeal but I did see several episodes of The Girls Next Door *LOVES*.

But yesterday was the first day of the next 70 Days of Sweat Challenge! I did squeeze in 2K this morning and I think they’re good words so yay for me! That makes up for yesterday and I’m hoping I can get more in tonight as well.

Here’s the welcome to the challenge post:

The main goal of this challenge is to write.

1) We’re looking for a total word count between 60-100k. This means between now and May 16, (77 days total, 7 ‘free’ days worked into the calendar), you will write 850-1500 words a day.

2) Check in here @ the blog every Sunday and Wednesday.

3) Daily inspiration here at the blog~you can stop in when time allows.
4) Time permitting, you can check out the blogs of your sponsors or fellow sweaters, links on the sidebar.

Sponsors this time around include: HelenKay Dimon, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Tyler, Shiloh Walker, Lauren Dane, Diana Peterfreund, Jaci Burton, and Portia Da Costa. The sponsors will drop in on the blogs from various challengers over the next couple of months.

So start writing! But take a minute and check out the above sponsors.

    After the encouraging e-mails from you and Jaci, I did sign up. Remember first time and no a professional writer. I got 200 words yesterday and added 400 today.

    Good luck with the challenge, Lauren. 😀 I’m managing to squeeze in about 1,200 words a day so far. Hope you are feeling better!

    The timing never seems right for me to participate in one of these challenges. I just finished a book on the last of February–60K in 29 days. I figure that was challenge enough. LOL

    Good luck with the 70 days of sweat!
