Debbie Ridpath Ohi, aka Inkygirl, has started the 1,000 Words a Day Challenge, a year-long challenge to keep yourself writing. She says she's open to having a 500 Words a Day badge, too, if enough people are interested.
The rules are simple: Try to write 1000 words a day, at least six days a week.
As long as you're honestly trying, it counts -- even if you don't reach it. How's that for cool?
I could do it now, but we're going on a long vacation starting next month, so I won't put the badge up until we get back.
If you want some motivation or encouragement, go check it out.
