And this is the only time that I'm going to put this out to the whole list of people in my contacts list. Prior to this I've only been sending up the updates for this blog to my immediate family list, but the thought occurs that others may want to get the updates as well.
So, I'm five days in, and including todays update, the latest chapters of The Shift, I'm around 15000 words in from the million that are owed this year. A little ahead of the track and that's including the bad days at work, so I'm quietly hopeful, but I don't want to bug everyone with updates every day (Because that's what there's going to be), so here's the question.
If you're getting this update, then you're in my circles somewhere.
If you want to keep getting updates on the Million words in a year challenge, let me know on this update, and from tomorrow, only those who want to be getting the updates will be getting them.
That said, if any of the rest of you want to put the word out there that someones doing something this nutty, please do, the more people watching, the more likely I am to succeed at this (Failing in front of six people is nowhere near as bad as failing in front of six thousand.....). So, please, put the word out, but do let me know if you want to keep getting the updates.
