We Have Four of Them To Help You…
If you are looking around and trying to set some goals for the coming writing year, consider taking a challenge from WMG workshops.
There are four of them on Teachable.
THE GREAT CHALLENGE is to write and send me a short story every week for 52 weeks.
NOVELLA CHALLENGE is to write and send me a novella every month for 12 months.
NOVEL CHALLENGE is to write and send me a novel every two months, and then publish the book in a paperback and send that to me at some point down the road.
PUBLISHING CHALLENGE is to publish one new major book every month. Major books are collections, novels, and novellas.
The cost is $600, but if you miss along the way, you get that much in workshop credit, so basically the challenge is free.
If you hit the challenge, you get your choice of any of the WMG Publishing lifetime subscriptions. That’s a great carrot to keep you going, but more than anything, what you will learn about your own writing and ability to get things out will be very valuable. Plus over the year you will have a lot of new stories and books.
The beginning of the new year is a great time to start a challenge, but once you sign up, you can tell me exactly when you want to start.
(Note: I will not read or critique your work. I will look at what you send in to heck on how you are doing. I am the deadline, basically. However, in the novel challenge when I get the paper books, I often have read them, and with the publishing challenge, I have often bought one of the books that looked interesting.)
(And yes, my eye is getting better. Almost back to reading without expanding the text. At this rate another week or so.)
Check them out on Teachable and any questions about them, just write me.
