Hang in there!

This is the thick of the Challenge, the time when it's the most -- well, challenging.  Remember that the challenge doesn't require writing every day, just 30 in 30 days.  I've fallen three days behind a couple of times, but with a little determination, catching up isn't that bad. It's the morning of the 20th, and though they aren't all the highest quality, I have 19 new poems that I wouldn't have had otherwise.  Number 20 will be dragged kicking and screaming from my subconscious later this afternoon.  Count on it.

More importantly, keep sharing your work!  We love reading your submissions, and while Cory Sheeley is certainly talented, we can't feature her work every day.  So please send us what you come up with during the Writers' Challenge.  We understand that the Challenge produces pieces that are somewhat less polished than usual, so don't be shy.  We're looking to feature as many unique voices as we can.  After all, your piece could be one of the best ever written during April 2011.

Good luck coming down the home stretch.
