Two million pages. Wow. Let's see, there are five of us so that computes to four hundred thousand each. There are 271 days left in the year so that's 1476 pages a day. Yeah, right.
Maybe we can expand it to include our larger writer's group. There are approximately thirty of us (I think a few more, but I'm not sure at this moment). But that still makes it 133 pages a day for each of us with no time off.
Okay, we may have to either expand this to include editing pages or more people, or cut the goal in half. But we are going to see what we can do.
It is an interesting challenge.

Tips and Teasers: In China, Ching Ming is a day when people visit the graves of their ancestors. Take a trip to a cemetery – the older, the better – and note dates, ages, names epitaphs if any. Pick one – or several – and come up with reasons why they died.
Thought for the day: "Writing ought either to be the manufacture of stories for which there is a market demand—a business as safe and commendable as making soap or breakfast foods—or it should be an art, which is always a search for something for which there is no market demand, something new and untried, where the values are intrinsic and have nothing to do with standardized values." – Willa Cather
