What is there about a challenge that makes it irresistible? Wish I knew. Because I fall prey to every challenge that comes along. NaNo. Mini-NaNo. ScriptFrenzy. You name it, I have to take it on.
Recently, a friend in my critique group issued a writing challenge: write a 20,000 word novella, either romance or mystery, in 10 weeks. Very doable.
So I set aside my work on the rough drafts of Deep in the Valley and Scribbles (yet again) to take up the challenge.
As of now, my paranormal romance novella, Tugger's Down, stands at just over 17,000 words.
Take heart, Niall and Bridghe, Meg and Johnny -- I'll be getting back to you soon...
