Just two more days until the March challenge is over! How are my 300 for 30 writers doing? I'll be sending out an email soon to prompt you to tell me about your challenge experience.
This month, you can name your own writing challenge!
Some of you are doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month, so we thought it would be fun to pick something that allows you to participate in both the monthly challenge here and that very cool event.
Others of you are pre-writing for Jill's #wewritebooks and a know a number of you are working on edits. Whatever it is you're hoping to make progress on, we'd love to encourage you through it this month!
Here are a few ideas of what your monthly goal might look like:
1. To write the first three chapters and a detailed summary of my novel.
2. To edit five chapters a week.
3. To write 10,000 words a week.
4. To write the history and create the map of my storyworld.
5. To write 100 words a day.
Be as creative with your personal goal as you like but your goal must be for a personal piece of writing. Whatever genre you write is fine—non-fiction, fiction, screenplays—but no college essays, school papers, etc.
How to take part:
If you want to participate in the challenge, you need to fill out the form below. When the month is over, I'll ask you to send me an email telling me how the challenge went and what you worked on.
Those who sign up for the challenge AND send me the email at the end of the month will be put in a drawing for a $20 Amazon.com gift card!
This challenge is for writers of all ages in all countries. You'll be able to sign up until the end of April 1st and then the form will close.
