Pacemaker Summer Olympics

Chess Board - TwitterI’m a speedy writer. When I say that, I’m not bragging. I’m also a writer with a moderate attention span. I prefer to slam through a first draft in 45 days and be done with it than belabor over it for months and months.

I have been working on The Wicked Witch of Whatever, off and on, since November.

Pacemaker, a project writing website, is having a challenge called the Pacemaker Summer Olympics. In this challenge, writers set a word goal of at least 400 words per day between August 5th and August 21st (the dates of the Summer Olympics).┬áPacemaker has a “fluctuating” setting, so I won’t be writing the same amount every day, but each day will be at least 400 words. Also, because Zanzibar (the place) is in Tanzania (the country), that’s the country I’m representing.

What about you? Want to join me for a little word challenge fun?

Go to https://pacemaker.press/challenges/summer-2016-olympics. Set up an account if you don’t have one and make or choose a plan. Then sign up for a country. There’s low participation right now, so you could make some obscure country famous (modestly famous) by winning.

I don’t have to have challenges to do my writing, but I do find they help, so why not? Let me know if you join and which country you’re representing. If you see the flag of Tanzania start showing up in my blog posts, you’ll know why.

Psst. The 5th is tomorrow. Get moving!
