You might be insane, friend.

These are great! I'm going to do a couple of these and a few others that I came across while checking these out :) Good luck with your challenges!

Hopefully I'll have a post(s) of my own up for these tomorrow!

Elizabeth said...

Insane, Friend you might be right. A few of the challenges allow crossovers which will help.

Aurora, good to hear from you. Which reading challenges do you participate in? And how's the rewrite coming? Or has your story joined mine in the abyss of forgotten nanonovels.

Jecca said...

I was actually going to say what Robin said but he beat me to it. :) Glad to have you joining MOHL though!

I've never participated in reading challenges before! I'm jumping into the deep in this year. LOL here's my list: http://aurora-lee.ca/Creative/?p=696

I'm still plugging away on my Nano novel. Currently typing and doing minor edits on what I've written so far. Still need to figure out the end.
