March Madness - Spread the Word

I think this is brilliant as I keep getting side tracked on different things and not writing.  There's nothing like putting me under a little pressure to get things done.

Spread the word.

If you’ve been looking for a challenge to get your writing in gear, you’ve come to the right place! Through the month of March we will be cheering each other on to meet challenging goals with our writing. 

My goal is to finish my second CLOCKWISE book by March 31st. I started it during Nano, and it's time to see it to the end!

Set your goal(s) in the comments so we can all keep each other accountable. Join in anytime, even if you didn’t find this post on March first – just head on over to the designated day, drop in your goal, and start reporting in.

Now for the fun part! There will be check-in stations at the following locations through the month of March:


Mondays - http://denisejaden.livejournal.com
Tuesdays - http://shanasilver.livejournal.com
Wednesdays -  http://jenhayley.com/blog/
Thursdays - http://www.denisejaden.com/Blog.html
Fridays - http://ellestraussbooks.blogspot.com
Saturdays - http://shanasilver.livejournal.com
Sundays - http://jenhayley.com/blog/

Make sure you head over to Denise's blog, to check in today. I'll meet you there with more details of what I hope to do this week.

Check in up to once per day – share your victories and struggles – and for each check-in on the designated blog, you will earn an entry for some fabulous prizes. (fine print – this is only available for ages 13 and up. If you live somewhere other than Canada or the U.S., please put “International” in your comment – we will have a few specific draws for international recipients, but unfortunately due to mailing costs, we can’t include you in all of them).

And now for the fabulous prizes…Here are a few of the great prizes you can win, and if there’s lots of support for March Madness, we will add even more!
