Criteria for the Challenge ::

1] Daily Word Count

2] Length to Goal

3] Reason for the Goal


Each of these daily episodes runs less than 10 minutes. Listen briefly every day or hoard up several episodes for when you fix a quick dinner, drive a short commute, or take a brisk walk.

Lessons for writing happen along the way!
