2011 - The Year of the Challenge

Is anyone up for a writing challenge in 2011?  I am, and so I was very excited to come across Write 1 Sub 1 - A Year-Long Writing Experiment in Ray Bradbury's Shadow

You can choose one of two challenges - write and submit one story a week OR write and submit one story a month.  You can find all the information here and here.  As you can see from the neat web badge on my sidebar, I chose to do the Write 1 Sub 1 Monthly.  As much I liked the idea of doing the story a week, I knew I wouldn't be able to pull it off with my novel rewrite/revision.  If I emerge victorious at the end of the year, I will be rewarded with the coveted LIGHT RAY AWARD.  Not to mention a number of well written (hopefully!) stories and a few publications. 

So join in and challenge yourself to Write 1 Sub 1 in 2011.  And if you don't want to do that, pick something else - write in a new genre, read a certain number of books, learn to cha cha, whatever.  We can cheer each other on.  Remember, I'm rooting for you!  Now, go!

  1. I love this idea, Madeline! Monthly, not weekly, 'cause I've also got the novel rewrite going. THANKS!

  6. I think I will check this out. I made a resolution last year to do this, but failed miserably. So far this year, tho, I have submitted around 4 or 5 stories.
