January Progress - Koala Challenge

I talked a bit about the Koala Challenge a few posts ago. You can click on my lovely, little Koala Badge in the sidebar and it will take you to McKoala's blog to check things out from the marsupial's headquarters.

I found out about and decided to do the challenge on January 18th, and as you can tell by my badge, I only got four points :-( I'm not completely ecstatic with that, but it gives me a good kick in the pants to try to climb that Koala ladder this month.

I'll keep my badge for the previous month in the sidebar, and change the status on the last day of each month (provided my status actually changes). I've also included the links for other participants. My linking has more to do with a handy-dandy way for me to find the blogs I'd like to visit... but feel free to visit them, too, cuz, ya know, they're cool.

How about you? Did you do the Koala Challenge and, if you didn't, how is your writing progressing?

Thanks to a last ditch act of desperation (that needed to be done anyway), I did well by the Koala this January.

I'm trembling in my sneakers regarding February, however.

Hey JJ,

Actually, I'm not that disappointed with only getting 4 points. I only counted the work I did in the two weeks I knew about the contest, so I was trying to gauge my output in that timeframe... I was a little annoyed with myself for not hitting 5, because I wanted to get in more writing time over the weekend. But overall, if I can get four points in two weeks, I should be able to hit nine every month - so long as I don't get flakey.

I started on an essay today and have already started adding to my wordcount for February.

I'm excited about February. I have 3 places I want to submit a story. So should have atleast a 3 by Feb end. If only I pull off those 4000 words too. Write Aniket, write!
