        That is a really good question; maybe someone who has a high score and has been here a long time can answer this.

    Well, sad to say that I haven't held to the 30-day challenge; though I keep telling myself that with each new hub, that will be the start of the challenge.  I am not quitting, mind you.  I am now seeing this as more than just a writing challenge, but a challenge to get myself to sit down and do this and not keep putting it off because of one reason or another.  Now that, I'll need good luck in!
