Inspiring You Challenge: Day 1
Time to light a fire under your butter bean.
It's time for another At Split Ends Accountability Race.
I need you. You need me. Together, we will inspire each other and keep each other accountable to reach our goals. Earlier this year, you helped me finish my book. Rebecca finished hers and Lindi and Dianna worked on theirs right along with us...
Well, folks, it's that time again...
For this challenge, I'm inviting anyone -

Writer or Not - Come Forth and Declare Your Goal
Are you assisting a loved one and need support or prayer? Do you want to reorganize your closet? In the middle of renovation of that one room that you can't seem to finish? Are you trying to lose weight? Are you trying to make it to the gym daily? Are you trying to finish writing your book? Are you planning to start a new business?
Whatever, your need, let's declare it here on ASB.
But wait! You're not done. Declaring the Goal is ONLY the first step! Then you have to hold yourself accountable and come back to this Blog and give me your progress.
Here's how it works.
1)Declare your Goal.
2)Report back to the blog daily - whether you made an achievement or not. Everyone involved in the challenge will be reporting and you will get support from all of us working on our goal.
3) By October 31st - we'll see who has met their challenge.
If you finished that room renovation, I'll send you a Home Depot Gift Card.
If you finish writing your book, I'll send you a Walmart gift card. And so on...
Basically, if you truly finish your stated goal, you will get a reward from me :)
(However, I cannot mail out of the country, so United States participants only, please)
Now mind you, the gift cards won't be anything fabulous. $5, $10 will be the max. But the fact is, I appreciate my friends and I want to help you reach your goals.
I'll go first... My challenge is to start a new book - working title, Sinking Sand. I'd like to have a rough draft completed by October 31st. My target word count for the book is 60,000 words, but I am not holding myself to that for this first challenge. That will come with rewrites. I simply want to have the beginning, middle and end down from all of the character's perspectives.
Are you up for a challenge?
Declare it and Let Us Begin to Inspire You!
