Nineteen Reasons to Join Our Writing Challenge
... plus one
Because you need a damn good excuse to tell your family & friends: “Oh sorry! I’m too busy doing a writing challenge.”
Because you need a damn good excuse to tell yourself the same thing.
Because said fam & friends believe your book is a figment of your imagination.
Because you need your writing mojo back (please).
Because NaNoWriMo is too short, too Mo, and only lets you prove your daily bloodletting (aka: writing) by counting words.
Because NaNoWriMo requires you to write on Thanksgiving when you’re supposed to be eating and sleeping (wha?)
Because you’re not American, reject Thanksgiving for political reasons, or are just plain lonely and want to eat and sleep on November 24 anyway (our challenge ends on Nov. 22!)
Because you need a reminder on those days that you’re just not feeling it (or feeling everything else a bit too much): Nope, got to do the challenge!
Because not doing the challenge would just be very sad.
Because you finally want to get that sucker STARTED!
Conversely: Because you finally want to get that sucker DONE!
Because writing is hard (and writing every day is harder).
Because you really need a new reason to hide away in your room and not talk to anybody.
Because you’re eager to feel the love and adoration of hundreds of other writers doing the the exact same challenge at the exact same time (or at least enjoy some good warm fuzzies while you’re typing).
Because you’re chomping at the bit to learn a little something every day from our AMAZING writers and teachers who will be working right alongside you.
Because that’s just how you swing.
Because when you told your therapist that you heard voices in your head (aka: your characters), she seemed to think something was wrong.
Because you’ll otherwise suffer some fierce FOMO for the rest of your life (see “very sad” reason above).
Because you want to get some writing done (too on the nose?).
Because twenty reasons to resist said challenge are just too many to ignore.
