DOOM stands for "Definitely O-normous O-uthor Months" or whatever you want it to be. ;) Some of my suggestions were: "Determination Overcomes Our Muddling," "Dedication Overcomes Our Mess," "Determined O-thers in Our Midst," "Determination On Our Minds," "Determination Overcomes Obstacles Mightily." Figuring out the acronym is rather fun! LOL. I'm kind of partial to the first one, so I think I'll treat it as "Determination Overcomes Our Muddling." I'll try to see the challenge as getting words on the paper, even if I'm just muddling through.
Anyway, here are the rules of the challenge:
- Who: Hosted by The Ramblings of a Wayward Author
- What: A challenge to write 50,000 words in 2 months
- When: March - April 2014
- Where: There's a Facebook group, but since I'm not on Facebook, I'm going to mostly be tweeting and blogging. I think I'll use the hashtag #MonthsofDOOM - and of course I hope to meet up with other writers for #1k1hrs!
- Why: To get words on paper and complete a novel!
