We made it, Write Club! We have arrived. The end of our 30-day endeavors is right around the corner.

We’ve been through a lot this month, bum knees, sickness, sleep deprivation, focus issues, life’s constant distractions, and yet we have prevailed. No coffee pot left unfilled. No writer left behind. We pulled together, shared solutions, and encouraged each other to push forward to reach our collective and individual goals. Projects were finished, leaps in progress were made, and motivation was rekindled. The majority of us made it to the finish line more emboldened than ever, and ready to push even further towards whatever step may be next for each of us.

It is with heartfelt gratitude and appreciation that I thank each and everyone of you who accepted and embraced this mission and supported so many others along the way. It has been a true pleasure. This exercise could not have happened without the incredible support from the entire Stage 32 Team—much love and thanks to each of them as well.

The goal this month was simple: Get. It. Done. 

To help celebrate our accomplishments, as a sort of “victory lap,” if you will, many participants shared their November project loglines. So let’s please take a moment, peruse our fellow Write Club members’ work, and clap each other on the back for a job well done. Project loglines are listed below in no particular order.

Please also share your thoughts, progress, and overall experience in the comment section below. Oh, and for those of you who participated all month long, be sure to check your inbox in the weeks ahead—we’ll be sending a special gift.

Okay, Write Club, let’s continue to support, inspire, and cheer each other on through our final days this November. And as we look ahead, let’s keep writing! Onward!
