December’s 30-Day Finish Cycle: Scheduled Maintenance & Prep for 2019 Challenge

Thank you for your support as we use December’s 30-Day Finish cycle to give this site a little tender love and care in preparation for the start of the next 12-month 85K Writing Challenge, set to begin on January 1, 2019.

In preparation for the 2019 85K Writing Challenge, many routine maintenance and security checks will be performed on this site during the month of December.


BookStats Word Tracker
On Monday, December 10, 2018: The BookStats Word Tracker software will be removed from use for two weeks so that scheduled updates can be performed. If needed, please write down 2018 totals before Monday, December 10th, as the tracker will be set once more to zero when it reopens at 12 noon on January 1, 2019.

Routine Maintenance & Security Checks
A number of routine maintenance and security checks will be performed that may temporarily impact certain functions of the site.

The 2018 Forum discussions will be archived and new 2019 Forums will be created. The 2019 Forum will open at 12 noon on January 1, 2019.

Blog Posts
During the final week of December, all 2018 blog posts will be moved to “Blog Archive” found on the main navigation menu.
