A Forgiving Writing Challenge

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. ๐Ÿ™‚


The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
