9 Months Left In The Year!
If you get focused, you can get a lot done in the next nine months. And learn a lot and have a lot of new books and products out for readers. That’s what these challenges are all about.
Even though I am writing this on the 1st, I won’t start officially counting until after I wake up.
Here is how the challenges will work, both half and full.
Every week on Monday (My week will be from Monday to Sunday night), I will post my consumable words written here that week on this blog to the right. They will be total from April 1st onward.
Then on both the half and the full challenges, I will post a video every week not only talking about the week, but also some tips and suggestions on how to get by things. Oh trust me, I will run into a lot of “things” along the way.
Your task each week or every other week or when you want, write me an email with your total for the year so far and if you are half or full challenge. You can report in Monthly if you want. Just not more than weekly, please. I will get confused.
Just a word count number that is total for the nine months so far, and if you. have learned something. No excuses, please. Just positive in your reports.
Subject Line… Challenge Half or Challenge Full depending on which one you signed up for.
The half-price sale for anything on WMG Teachable is still going on, so you can get these challenges at half price. (See last posts for details.)
Any questions, feel free to write me.
Here we go! This will be great fun!
(Oh, Wait, some Math!!)
If I think Monthly and want to write 1,000,000 words by December 31st, I need to average about 112,000 words per month of consumable words.
If I think Weekly and want to write 1,000,000 words by December 31st, I need to average about 25,645 words per week.
If I think Daily and want to write 1,000,000 words by December 31st, I need to average about 3,670 words per day.
Consumable Words, meaning anything that will be consumed by the general public, such as this blog post, introductions to books, fiction of any length or type, poetry, nonfiction books.
Emails and social media do not count. Responses to WMG course assignments DO COUNT, since you might take those and make them into stories later. Got a question about that, write me.
Full challenge needs to match whatever I do over the nine months. Half matches half what I do.
(By the way, this blog post is about 460 words long and will not count because technically this is still March 31st for my writing day. Tomorrow I start.)
