60-Day Publish


The final step in the 85K Writing Challenge is the 60-Day Publish cycle.

Every October and November, for sixty days, the focus of the 85K Writing Challenge community is taking steps toward publishing 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 writing.

The 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, October and November are dedicated to publishing efforts, knowing the actual outcome of desired results may take much longer the 60-Day Publish cycle.

Inspired by prosperity and growth, 60-Day Publish is color-coded green.
