Hey Rebecca. Go ahead and sign up. You still got time to plan something.
Last year, I participated but was doing other things that month. I got behind schedule and then got really burnt out trying to write to catch up. This year, I’m just going to write and enjoy it.
Hi Tonja, That all you need to do. Don’t stress about it, just sit down and write. The word count will take care of itself. Good luck.
