Lost Three This Week…
Two writers from the Short Story Great Challenge and one from the Novel Great Challenge.
And that is no surprise, considering the holiday stuff. In fact, to me, honestly, it is more of a surprise that more didn’t drop this week. And this next week will be brutal for many as well.
However, the two in the short story workshop both had done over 26 stories in a row, so both of them got $900 in workshop credit. And over 26 new stories to market, use for promotion, get up indie.
26 short stories is more stories than most writers write in years. So it is a fantastic accomplishment.
I am fairly certain that there are a few writers still signed up and going that will make the 52 stories in one year, one per week, if they can get through this coming week. They have the pattern down and have already survived a bunch of roadblocks.
And of course, they will get their choice of a Lifetime Subscription when they hit the 52. That’s a pretty good carrot, not counting having that many stories done.
The novel person got one novel finished and out, and got the $600 in workshop credit back that they paid in. So also a win.
A number of people have asked if the challenges are still open and they are. A great way to challenge yourself in 2020, I will admit.
6 novels in 12 months, one every two months, or one short story per week for a year. If interested, read the instructions on each challenge on Teachable. (And yes, you can do both. A couple have tried it and done well.)
Cost is $600 (can’t use credit) and if you miss, you get the $600 in workshop credit back, plus you have the stories or novels that you got done. And if you make it, not only do you have a lot of stories or six novels done, but you get a Lifetime Subscription for the $600 fee.
Great challenge, good deal, no-lose, all-win situation. Jump on in, the water’s great.
