On The Write Focus, we’re posting a daily podcast from Write a Book in a Month, by Remi Black.
Daily check-ins include the project stage progressing word count as well as speculations on writing in general and the writing business in particular.

Criteria for the Challenge ::
1] Daily Word Count
2] Length to Goal
3] Reason for the Goal
Each episode 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!
Each episode will conclude with the two quotations from professional writers (Hemingway! Heinlein! Atwood! More!!!) that opened and closed the day’s writing sessions.
