The Dickens Challenge

Filed under: Dickens Challenge — cindylv @ 7:29 am

I took the plunge and jumped into the pool with eight other brave souls on Tim Hallinan’s weblog, The Blog Cabin. I will be posting chapters here and on the Dickens Challenge Forum. And it won’t hurt. Since Tim started talking about the possibility of doing this challenge, I started writing again. The other day I sat down and 3000 words fell out of my head. Last night, while the Bears were getting their butts kicked on Monday night football, I spent two hours revising my Prologue.

Flow . . .

Monday I will post.



  1. So glad you took the plunge! I read about you and about what you’re working on and I can’t believe that out of such a small number of people, two of us (women) are veterans — I’m working on my second chapter, which takes my character back to an assignment in Germany. Talk about a small world! I can’t wait to read your work.

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Lisa. I’m so excited about us jumping in together! My goal is to finish this first book in a series of my character’s duty assignments, highlighting her experience and exploits in different situations/locations. I’m glad you’re right next to me!

  3. Welcome aboard Cynthia.
    The moment I read some of your work, my mind went to Lisa.
    look forward to Monday when you post, proper.
