That’s a wrap!

Best wishes to the writers on the 85K Writing Challenge for spending this year writing during the 90-Day Write (January – March), pausing to either finish, get ahead, or take a break during the 30-Day Finish (April), editing during the 60-Day Edit (May & June), pausing to either finish, get ahead, or take a break during the 30-Day Finish (April), prepping to publish during the 60-Day Prep (August & September), and now, pursuing their unique path toward publishing.

For writers on the 85K Writing Challenge, the 60-Day Publish cycle is now underway.

Every October and November, for sixty days, the focus of the 85K Writing Challenge community is the publishing of that year’s 85,000 words.

Whether traditional, hybrid, indie, or micro, the path toward publishing is unique to every writer and every piece of writingThe 85K Writing Challenge encourages writers to pursue publishing when the time is right for them and when their novel is at its best which may or may not be during the months the 60-Day Publish cycle is scheduled.

Whether querying agents or hiring book cover designers and placing your book on sale, we wish you the very best during the 60-Day Publish cycle.

December is a 30-Day Finish month dedicated to finishing tasks from the previous year.

Our website might fall “quiet” for a while as we prepare for next year’s 85K Writing Challenge. This means we might go into “maintenance mode” from time to time to clean up from the previous year and prepare for the next.

See you on January 1, 2020, for the start of a new year on the 85K Writing Challenge?
