Bloggiesta: The Plan

January 21, 2011

Natasha at Maw Books is hosting Bloggiesta this weekend. In her words:

Bloggiesta begins now and runs  through Sunday the 23rd (technically the wee hours of Monday morning).  You can really start whenever you want within that time but official hours are 8am to 8am (wherever you are).  The hours spent on the challenge do NOT need to be in a row. Use the entire 72  hour time frame and see what you can do with it.  It’s your call as to how much you want to put into it.  But you have to put something into it or it’s not a challenge.

Pedro!!

Plan.  Edit.  Develop.  Review.  Organize.
