STORYSTORM

What is STORYSTORM? How do you participate? It’s easy πŸ™‚

  1. Register by January 7th.
  2. Read daily blog posts.
  3. Jot down story ideas.

By the end of January, if you have at leastΒ 30 new ideas, you can sign the STORYSTORM PLEDGE and possibly win some PRIZES!Β How awesome is that? Check out the first post here!

Shoutout to Jennifer Shelby for sharing this challenge on her blog ❀

85K

This challenge focuses on writing 85,000 words in 90 days. You have to commit to 1,000 words, every day, for three months. Some writers will write more in one day. The 90-day time frame gives writers time to catch up if another commitment interrupts them.

April is the first of three 30-Day editing months. This means you have a month in April to finish up your project before the editing phase that begins on May 1st.

Learn more here!Β Shout out to my friend, Rebecca, for sending me the link πŸ™‚

Until next time,
