The Boundless Living Challenge

I blogged about this in November last year, and my hair brained scheme to get a literary agent in 45 days.
Round three of the challenge has rolled around and this time I have officially signed on, with my first Boundless Living Challenge blog and everything (I know, there is a danger of spreading myself too thin, but it is only for 45 days).
The Boundless Living Challenge was started last summer by Bob Doyle to help people change their lives in 45 days. You pick an area of your life you want to work on - your goal can be as big or as small as you want to make it - and then you use the Ning community to help you reach your goal. There is a lot of help and support and, I think the main idea behind it, accountability to your other participants make sure you reach your goal.
The Challenge is completely free and some people have achieved amazing things in the last two rounds.
Now it is my turn.
My challenge for the next 45 days is to write the complete first draft of my new novel Gift. For those who follow the blog, you know I've already started work on the planning stage. Now it is time for the writing. I don't plan on using the next 45 days for a Nanowrimo like dash of creative out pouring either. I want to write the best darn first draft I can, and from the preparatory work I've done, I think it is going to be a pretty good novel when it's finished.
You can see my first challenge vblog entry here (don't I look pretty).
So what would you change in the next 45 days if you took up the challenge?

Wolfified = funny, not better!!

Best of luck with the writing - I know you can do it!!

Inkpot said...

DNOTY2007/2008 you say funny, I say better - let's call the whole thing off! :)

How about WOLFICATED or WOLFIFICATION or simply WERE-WOLFED?
