See that blue clock?

Our 90-Day Write cycle (color-coded blue) is drawing to a close on Friday, March 31, 2017.

April is a 30-Day Finish month, dedicated to:

  • wrapping up any loose ends from the 90-Day Write
  • preparing for the coming 60-Day Edit
  • refreshing our minds and our creativity

See that red coffee cup?

Our 60-Day Edit cycle (color-coded red) opens May 1 and runs through June 30.

Here’s your “Things-To-Do List” during the final week of the 85K Writing Challenge 90-Day Write:

  • Write.
  • Don’t give up.
  • Push through.
  • Recommit.
  • Make time.
  • Work hard.
  • Push yourself.
  • Do it.
  • Write it.
  • Be it.

Get as far as you can between right now and midnight on Friday, March 31, 2017. You still have April to catch up before editing begins in May.

Won’t reach 85,000 words?

If you have not and will not reach your goal of writing 85,000 words in 90 days – for goodness sake – don’t give up! That’s the worst thing you can do.

Set a new goal this week to reach 70,000, or 50,000, or 35,000 total words – whatever the case may be. Push forward.  Wake up early; stay up late. A 60,000-word, almost-finished novel on the eve of March 31 is better than the novel you think about, but never sit down to write. Be kind to yourself. Believe in yourself. Write your novel. Write as much of it as you can. It’s that simple.

On the 85K Writing Challenge, if you push yourself to write more, if you change your daily writing habits, if you commit to nurturing the writer within, you “win.” You succeed. That said, you have a novel to write. SO WRITE IT.

It’s the final week of the 85K Writing Challenge 90-Day Write.

Pencils ready? Let’s do this thing.
