I did it. 44097 words added to HDP in June.

I'm thrilled.

Thanks to the organisers of the June Challenge. I know I would never have written that many words without it.

I was reading an article yesterday on the website of brilliant New Zealand author, Karina Bliss, where she talked about writing every day. I think that's what I'm happiest about. I wrote every day for a month, even though one day my total was only 82 words. And it might never happen again!

Now for a celebratory sundae!


  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again - you like TOTALLY ROCK!!

  2. Well done, Becca! That's great.

    Karina is fab isn't she? I happened to meet her by chance at a family do, found out she was a romance author and ending up grilling her about writing for HMB. She was so encouraging I decided to take the plunge myself!

  3. Well done!!!! That is an AMAZING word count =)

  4. Congrats Becca! You should be proud :)

  5. Rach - Thanks babe!

    Jackie - how great to meet Karina at a family do... not helping the impression of everyone knowing everyone in NZ... I have a friend called Terese, do you know her??

    Mel - thanks. This was my bootcamp brainstorm story.

    Lacey - more drained than proud i think!
