Join the Summer Writing Challenge

by | Jul 28, 2017 | academic writing, writing challenge

I just looked at my calendar and realized that my summer ends in three weeks. ACK!! Although I’m super excited about the kids going back to school (like doing a happy dance excited!!), I’m silently panicking about all the writing I didn’t get done this summer.

But wait a minute (I told myself), it’s not over until it’s over!!! So next week I’m running the Summer Writing Challenge (I didn’t call it the “End-of-summer Writing Challenge” so as not to distress you too much ;)). It’s totally free. Here’s how it works:

  • Commit to writing everyday–a little or a lot–from July 31-August 4.
  • Check in to the Facebook group and tell us how it’s going or comment on one of my cute interaction posts 😉
  • Join me live at 12:00 noon EST in the FB group everyday fromJuly 31-August 4. Or don’t. If you miss it, the video will be there when you’re good and ready for it.
  • Kick some writing butt cause we’re in this together!!!

Just enter your name and email below and you’ll get the link to join the group. And it would be SUPER AWESOME if you would forward this email to a friend and ask them to join, too. Writing is better with friends!!

See you in the group!
