Ready for Another Writing Challenge? #WinWriWk

Standard

Well I’m not! But I’ll be doing it anyway, because you know me and a writing challenge. And apparently I’m going to do two.

First things first, as this is more time sensitive, there’s this one from my friends over at Fiction Can Be Fun,  and @debsdespatches. It’s a writing prompt based on a funky image called the Mondretti Cylinder, stories to be posted on your blog this Friday, January 12, 2018 (TWENTY-EIGHTEEN, PEOPLE, it’s nuts), with the link in the comments of the original Fiction Can Be Fun post.

See? Fun. Can’t resist.

On to challenge two. This one is called “Winter Writing Week,” (#WinWriWk) and it comes to us from @FunSizeSuze and  (he’s a really busy guy!) via his blog, A Back of the Envelope Calculation. Here’s the post for details, but the best part, in my opinion, is that we can choose our week, any time from now until the end of February to commit to a writing project or our writing in general. Or, even better, to form a writing habit.

I love an open-ended challenge.

I know what I need to do–I have a novel about 20,000 words from completion–so I’ll find my challenge within that. Check out the post for more ideas, including those suggestions for boosting your writing routine.

So who’s with me? Pens in the air! Ready, set, type!

What’s that, hypothetical reader? Yes, you can put the pen down now. I didn’t really expect you to do this with a pen.

#AtoZChallenge Wrap-Up and #MAYKingItWork

Standard

Yes, this post should have gone up yesterday, but I was a little blogged out. Another A to Z Challenge done, and it was a fun one this year. I didn’t really mind the lack of the list once we got used to it, but I also was a terrible, terrible slacker when it came to my visits.

But I will find you all. Who says all visits must be only in the month of April?

This year’s challenge spawned a new idea: #MAYkingItWork. We pick an unfinished manuscript of any type and commit to it for the month of May. Are you in?

I’ve got two candidates at the moment, so I have to make a final decision. Let’s say we reflect, go through our potential choices, and decide by Friday? No pressure, really, just support and encouragement.

So thanks to everyone who came by and visited this month, it’s been so much fun sharing April with you, and I hope to see you around often.

Have a dusty, unfinished manuscript you need to work on? Join us in May for #MAYkingItWork! Commit to a project and commiserate with us!
