Are you participating in The End? I am! RWA is challenging you to meet your writing goals. It began February 2, but you can jump in at any time, and it runs through December 2015. Participants aim to write at least 2000 words per month. At the end of each month, those who have met or exceeded that goal are eligible for the monthly prize. March’s prize is a The End! T-shirt. Cute, huh? I’m really jonesing for that T-shirt. AND, for those who’ve met the 2000 word count goal every month, there’s a grand prize drawing at the end of the challenge.
When you sign up, you receive a daily email with “Writing Wisdom” from best-selling authors like Jill Shalvis, Eloisa James, Jude Deveraux, and Suzanne Brockman. There’s also a word count tracker that tracks your progress, monthly writing prompts, and discussion forums.
My WIP, Dreams of Her Own (Book #3, Dreams Come True) is already contracted and due August 31, so it will be completed long before The End, has, er, ended. But the challenge is motivating me to git ‘er done. I’m racking up the words, reading the words of wisdom from some of my favorite best-selling authors, and feeling the encouragement from my fellow “Enders.”
If you’ve got a deadline looming, consider signing up for The End. Maybe you’ll even win a prize or two for accomplishing your goals.
