Just Going To Call It A Day
Not Much Else to Say About Today…
Stuff happened, things got done, battles were waged, the internet was slow everywhere, and the day went past.
And sometimes that’s all you can say about a day.
And sometimes that is more than enough.
THEY START ON SUNDAY…
As I have said over and over, only five people have signed up for the short story challenge so far. I expanded it and the novel challenge to eight writers, so still room in both challenges.
If interested in signing up, just write me. They are going to be great fun. Here are the details once again. Starts October 1st, WHICH IS SUNDAY!!
SHORT STORY Challenge:
— Write thirty short stories in 60 days. You can take the full time or you can write them in a month. Up to you.
— I will charge $600 to be your first reader. If you try the challenge, you get two online workshops of your choice, a $600 value. (In essence, I will read for free if you do the challenge.)
— If you feel the challenge is not working for you, I will offer you an off-ramp at various points and you can take it and get the two online workshops. So you can try this risk free.
— Write three novels between October 1st and January 15th. You can take the full time or you can write them quicker. Up to you.
— I will charge $600 to be your first reader. If you give this a try, you get two online workshops of your choice, a $600 value. (In essence, I will read for free if you do the challenge.)
— Novels can be any length over 30,000 words and at least half of the first one must be written during the time of the challenge.
— If you feel the challenge is not working for you, I will offer you an off-ramp and you can take it and get the two online workshops. I also will give you two online workshops if a life event comes up and you can’t finish.

That sounds like my day, only I’m not sure that it was enough. I still have headshots to choose, and I still have a cover design to work on. But I did discover that my dog can rest his head on my lap when I type, so perhaps it is.
Just wanted you to know that I am taking the challenge, but I don’t have the money . I will be doing on my own.You’ve really inspired me. I’ve allowed some things to get me down, and it is time to get back up. I want ti use this challenge to get back up on my writing feet. This whole thing has really got me excited to start writing again. Thanks for this idea Dean!
Thanks, Jason. Remember to keep the writing fun. That is the key.
Thanks Dean. I sure will. This is the most excited I’ve been about writing in a year and a half…and I have no idea at all what I’m going to write 🙂
