#WriterRecharge Challege for February

We'd like to invite you to join us for Writer Recharge 2014, a month-long motivational challenge similar to last summer's Ready. Set. Write! So many of us benefited from setting goals, connecting with other writers, and social media-based accountability. So, hey, let's do it again! Whether you're delighting next to the crackling fireplace of a Shiny New Idea with a warm cup of tea and a sleepy puppy at your feet or spinning out on the ice-covered roads of revisions in an attempt to avoid the snow-packed ditch, we want to write with you! What do you want to accomplish this month? Hit a daily word count? Revise a certain number of pages or chapters each week? Complete a draft by the end of the month? Let's get this party started!

  • February 28: Post your final update via your blog or twitter.
  • Anyone who uses the hashtag or links their blog posts will be entered to win one of five query or 3-chapter critiques.
Just what I needed! I've already started going through my NaNoWriMo draft from November, but some more specific goals are definitely needed. Here's a rough outline of what I'd like to accomplish this month:
  1. Read and score all of my Golden Heart judging entries (I need to do this!).
  2. Get through draft 2 of Nano novel SUNSET SUMMER. Write an ending.
  3. Organize notes for draft 3 for a targeted approach at changes (draft 2 is not very organized!).
  4. Submit next chapter of SUNSET SUMMER for critique group; work in changes.
  5. Potentially work in updates to AMELIA (which Agent currently has).

  10. Such a nice stuff can be more effective through HD Wallpapers for article readers. Anyways Non compliance of such issues is now very common. And for willing ful non compliances there are hefty penalties also prescrivbed under relavanbt act. One more such are is Section 185 of Companies Act.
    Manier times its required to take such actions, Withdrawal of pre 2005 currency notes may be due to some reason which can not be solved out as it is. Other than Android Apps for PC actually such type of things are happening in other Operating system also. such stuff also available on All Android Answers
