Target for Checkpoint #2:
If you’re pacing your writing to fit the timetable of the challenge, you should now have about 4,000 words or 2/5 complete. It’s fine if you’re not there yet! That’s just the target to aim for.
There’s no obligation to write to this schedule; the target word counts for each checkpoint are only for those who find it helpful. Some of us like to write at a steady pace; others work better in irregular bursts of inspiration. If the slow-and-steady approach doesn’t fit the way you work, feel free to ignore the targets.
How to “check in”:
Please comment using the template below to let us know how you’re doing.
Tell us a little about your progress:
Anything else you want to say (e.g. Do you need any help? Lacking inspiration or need a sounding board? Want to rant a little?):
Feel free to share some details about your project, maybe a summary or some hints, but please don’t post actual extracts. There’ll be a post for that as we come toward the end of the challenge, but this is too early.
To repeat: the checkpoints are completely optional. Writers can “check in” on LJ, the big bang website or on the mailing list. All three, if you like 🙂
