I wanted to share with y'all a fun writing challenge hosted by my best friend over on Go Teen Writers. But unlike all her other contests, this one is open for all ages! Yay!
Rather than a see-how-many-words-you-can-write challenge, or a finish-a-book-in-a-month deal, this one's goal is simply to get your rear in your writing chair EVERY day. The goal? 100 words. For how long? 100 days. Hence...
It doesn't sound like much--you can write 100 words in about 10 minutes. But at the end of the 100 days, that's a guaranteed 10,000 words in the manuscript you're working on! Plus, that rear-in-chair thing can just get you rolling toward more.
For the full set of rules, visit Go Teen Writers. I'll just take the time here to let you in on the prizes you're entered to win if you complete the challenge.
First, a 10,000 critique of your manuscript. And second, this awesome necklace from Inspired Novelties, made especially for writers--the "What's Your Story" necklace. (Critique is open to any English-writing author. Necklace to US addresses only.)
Most importantly, you have to sign up my Monday, September 10--so no dawdling! Hie thee over to Go Teen Writers and fill out the form!
