is anybody else doing this?

(yes, I know, I'm crazy, but it's been okay so far. 1700 words a day, and I'm ahead of schedule! whee!)

That sounds really awesome. Even though I'm a little late I'm thinking about signing up for it. I've never heard of it before. How did you come across it?

A "friend" told me about it - friend in quotes because I wish I hadn't started ;] I'm not a fiction writer, and I don't like writing fiction - and here I am under enormous amounts of pressure to write fiction. ;] but it's all about quantity, not quality.

Good! I think it's a great way to learn discipline as a writer - something that you really have to work for and set intermediary goals for yourself to accomplish. I wish I'd posted something earlier about it, but it just slipped my mind entirely.

And there are a number of 12 and 13 year olds on the boards there who have higher word counts than I do right now. It's definitely doable.
