You did it! You crossed the finish line.

It’s March 31, 2017. The official end of the 90-Day Write cycle and our quest to write 85,000 words in 90 days. How does it feel? I hope it feels AWESOME. You set a goal, set aside time to write, sat down, and got to work.

Great job, writers. You rock.

So now what? What happens next?

Well, for starters, we take a break. April is a 30-Day Finish month. Time to relax, refresh, and get ready for the next production cycle: the 60-Day Edit, scheduled for May and June.

Not quite finished with your manuscript? No worries. You have the month of April to finish. Hence the name: 30-Day Finish.

A lot can happen in 30 days. Entire novels can be written.

So stay focused and stay committed. Report to the page. Write your novel.

It’s that simple.

What happens on this website during April’s 30-Day Finish cycle?

Truthfully, not much.

We won’t be posting much of anything during April. It’s truly a month to finish, recharge, and relax.

Behind the scenes, we will be making a few adjustments . . .

  • Our program logos and colors change from BLUE (90-Day Write) to GRAY (30-Day Finish). Soon, our colors will be RED (60-Day Edit).
  • We’ll be making a few changes to the appearance and functionality of the website and forum.
  • We’ll be preparing the content and programs for the 60-Day Edit cycle.
  • The WriterStat word tracking software will undergo a few updates beginning at 2 am on April 2, 2017, and then again about a week later, so if you have a moment, take a screenshot of your word counts or write a few notes to yourself should any data be lost during these upgrades – it shouldn’t – but it’s always wise to plan ahead. Speaking of WriterStat, would you be so kind and either craft your own tweet or share this tweet thanking them? We’re so fortunate to have this tool at our fingertips and now’s a great time to thank our sponsor. @WrtrStat
