Feeling alone while writing day in and day out? You don’t have struggle in solitude! BiaW is a diverse group of HCRW members writing frantically  (just like you!) from the first Saturday of the month to the Friday before the HCRW meeting. Every night of BiaW, report your page totals and our moderator will announce the totals at the meeting as well as offer ongoing support during the challenge.
