The folks at the Austin Romance Writer’s of America have a monthly writing challenge. The winners write every day for a month and we have a blast encouraging each other to park our behinds in front of the computer every single day.

So I’d started this a bunch of times last year but toward the end of last year and this year, despite being in Iraq, I am going to participate and finish each month ( I still have to finish my novel, Saving Trent) and get started on the next project.

Thanks to the awesome folks at ARWA, ROMVETS and other RWA chapters for sending along the care packages, too. I get to play Santa every day because of my writer friends around the country.
