I totally forgot about this until I saw a "Memory" on my facebook page from a couple of years ago.

I haven't succeeded in this for a few years now but I may have a go. I had planned it a few months ago with a title.

Is anyone else doing it?

First day and so far I've written 1,872 words which is ahead of schedule. The average is 1,667 per day and good to be slightly ahead of the game as there will be times I don't get anything done.

I'm attempting this for 2017 - it's been a slow start (if truth be told) but I'm going to have a hobnob if I get to 100 words.

Disagree. An owl has already featured in mine and I'm less than two pages in.

It does you know. I need something like this to give the kick up the bum I need.

Maybe ditch the owl? Or at least name him Archimedes and put him in charge? (Okay it's been done.)

Up to 4,000 words. All crap really and just spew out of my fingertips as dialogue would happen. Not sure where it's going to go.

Up to 6,669 words. That's better than 4 days worth. I know I'm a couple of days behind but it's going well.
