Who doesn’t like a good writing challenge?
But, as much as I love writing challenges, I don’t always get the urge to write every day. And, unfortunately, I tend not to have the discipline to force myself to write when I don’t have the urge. In fact, most days of the week I tend to procrastinate rather than write. That is why I love this challenge. It is very forgiving.
A lot of challenges give a specific target and a specific time frame. This challenge does not deal in specifics. The aim is to write 250, 500, or 1000 words for about 6 days a week.
Confused yet? Don’t be. With this challenge you choose your daily word count goal but if you find yourself struggling or overachieving you can change it. So, if you aim for 500 words but find yourself writing over 1000, you can up your word count goal. Likewise, if you find yourself writing less than 500 words you can lower your word count goal.
The challenge is also to write 6 days a week but makes allowances for life. If you miss a day or a week, all you have to do is get back to writing. The aim isn’t to stress you out about writing every single day but rather to get you to write as many days as you can.
I am trying for the 250 words a day on my personal blog and I am also going to try for 250 words a day on my writing blog.
So, if you’re looking for a cool challenge that forgives mistakes (and procrastination), join me with Inkygirl’s Word Count Challenge. 🙂
