They Really Add Up Quick

     Hi, readers!  I just wanted to let you know that I am doing the 100 for 100 Challenge, hosted by Go Teen Writers (you can see the badge in my sidebar).  And I am going to try to set up one day a week with snippets for you.
     Essentially the challenge is to write 100 words (or more) per day for 100 days.  The point is to build the habit of writing regularly.
     The rules stipulate that it has to be on one project (there are a couple exceptions, which you can read about on their announcement post).
     Thankfully, they allow one "grace day" per week and one "grace week" per challenge.  I used this week's grace day yesterday (on the first day of the challenge) due to unpredictable circumstances which had me far from my writing implements.  Ahem.  With my job, this challenge might be difficult, but I am going to try it anyway.
     I wrote 738 words on my project today.  But, since the point of the challenge is to build good habits, my wordiness today does not make up for my absence yesterday.  I just have to make sure I don't miss any more days this week or I am out of the game before it's hardly started!
     It's a fun thought that, at the end of the challenge, I will have added 10,000 words to my story.  When you actually look at it, one hundred words are not very much.  But they sure do add up!
