A Round of Words in 80 Days!

So guys, I have been thinking about joining up for a while ever since Gabrielle Bisset did a post about it on her blog. I think it will be great motivation for me to really plough on with my story. A Round of Words begins on April 4 and ends on June 23 (which is ironically my 5 year anniversary). There are regular check-ins which you make so everyone knows how you're progressing on your story and so that you can support one another.

My goal: I am currently working on the first book in the KAT LYRILLE series and have completed 12,000 words. I aim to reach 60,000 words in 80 days and plan on writing at least 600 words a day.

Depending on how consistent I am about this I may increase or decrease my end goal. I would love to have a complete first draft after 80 days but I'm not sure if I'd be able to do it.

Wish me luck!


  1. good luck in your goals - it's a great place to be everyone is so surportive

  2. Thanks guys! Good luck to you all!

  4. I think I want to join... Great find!

    I discovered it on Gabrielle's blog and thought it was a great way to keep on top of my word count goals. You can still join up even after it has started.
