PnR writer Kait Nolan is organising a new (and quite sensible) writing challenge called A Round of Words in 80 Days. Sick of NaNoWriMo styled events that require total dedication for a short amount of time, Kait thought it would be better to have long term goals that fit into real life and could be based on your individual goals.
You can work on an already partly-written manuscript, start a new one, plot, edit, etc. You can basically customise it in any way to suit yourself but still be part of a community of writers encouraging each other to keep on keeping on. All you have to do is state your goals, keep track and stay in touch. On the blogs and even on Twitter if you have an account. There are four rounds of 80 days with breaks in between so pretty much everyone can get involved in some way.
Kait is still looking for authors to help out and is encouraging people to sign up their interest - although you have a while to start thinking of your goals. First round starts on Jan 3rd 2011 so check it out and gear up. :)
