Several times now, we've hosted a "100 for 100 challenge" where a group of us commit to write 100 words a day for 100 days. For some of us, this works great. For others, it's hard to be consistent for so long. (I know someone is going to ask this, so I'll just put it here—yes, Go Teen Writers will host another 100 for 100 challenge. We anticipate doing so this summer.)
The March monthly challenge is to write 300 words a day for 30 days.
(Yes, March has 31 days. 300 for 31 doesn't have quite the same ring to it.)
If you write 300 words a day for 30 days, you'll have at least 9,000 words written by the end of the month. Isn't that amazing to think about? The 100 for 100 stretches on so long for me, that it's hard to find a season of life that it fits into, but I'm hoping that for 30 days, I can push myself to do at least the bare minimum.
How to take part:
If you want to participate in the challenge, you're welcome to do it on your own, or you can fill out the form below. Sometimes it helps to physically sign up for something. Makes it feel more official.
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. You don't have to send me your actual writing, but just a few sentences about your experience.
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 March 1st and then the form will close.
