Welcome to summer. The sun comes up, the kids come home, and our writing sits around all day like dead weight, occasionally whimpering at us from the desktop.

It's time to get our manuscripts swimsuit ready!  

We've got to get serious, cut the excess, and tighten the body.  So how are we going to do that with all the summer madness?

Here's a clue:

That's right, we're going light.  

Starting June 1st and ending September 8th, we are challenging all of you to write 100 words each day.  

100 words a day?  That's easy!  It can be any kind of writing-- 100 words in your manuscript, 100 words in your journal, 100 words on your grocery list (well, maybe not that one).

Need support from your fellow ANWA sisters?  Be sure to check back here often for tips and clues on how to reach your goal.  For any of you seasoned writers, we'd love to hear what works for you.  Contact us at anwaevents at gmail dot com and we'll post your suggestions.

We may even give a few little gifts along the way...

Leave a comment and let us know who's joining the challenge.  Then roll up your sleeves, grab your computer, and buckle down for the half hour or so it will take each day to meet the goal.

 To help you feel inspired, here's some pictures of a few other things that come in 100's:
