I’ve signed up for a cross-genre 5-day writing challenge to be held via a private Facebook group, starting 9th November. It coincides neatly with NaNoWriMo, as well as with a week of annual leave that I booked from work so that I could write.
To quote the blurb:
This 5 Day Page Turner Challenge will show you how to bring all the elements of a fast paced, gripping read to your fiction, whatever genre you are writing. We’ll be looking at characters, plotting and how important conflict is to generate story – and how to keep your reader turning those pages.
Each day there will be one daily task, this will take between 10-20 minutes to complete (you can devote as much time as you wish).
We’re going to be looking at character, plotting, story development, dialogue and those all important opening lines.
We’re also going to be look at those other writer problems like writers block, imposter syndrome and building good writing habits.
You’ll be given EXCLUSIVE access to our private challenge members only Facebook group, along with everyone else taking part in the challenge. Places are limited so don’t dither!
Every day Sam Blake and I will share one action item in the group for you to complete and post in the comments your results so we, and the rest of the group can see how you got on.
Each task can be done in 10-20 minutes and we’ll be on hand to answer any questions you have. The best bit is the wonderful energy and community vibe that comes from joining a challenge – it’s infectious!
There’s nothing like a reliable and supportive community to turn to when you get stuck – and the challenge always delivers on that. We’ll be live every evening in the group to discuss the day, answer questions and to see how you’re getting on – and we’ll be inviting some special guests along to say hello too.
It’s €35 to join, and open to writers everywhere.
