Writing Challenges

Challenges

Why do you write? Do you have confidence issues when it comes to writing? Writing every day can help erase those confidence issues then build up your confidence and learn to write better. These prompts come from a variety of challenges so it doesn't matter what genre you write in. You'll get to experience all kinds of genres. If you haven't picked a genre, this might be the time to find what genre you like best.

Self-discipline is important to writing as well. Throughout the challenges I'll be available via e-mail and texting to help you with your challenges.

I'll also assess your completed challenges and provide feedback to help you see where you may need to improve. With feedback, you can return to your writing improved and as a better writer.


I do more than offer you a writing challenge, I offer you a writing coach. We can increase your writing confidence. We can help you find ways to write in the life you have, instead of changing your life for your writing. I'll gently push you until you make writing your number one goal.

Writing Success will be your number one goal!

Dream Challenge - 4 weeks
Place a pad of paper or journal and pen beside your bed. Every morning - or if you wake during the night from a dream - write as much as you can remember from your previous dream. Try to fill in as many details as possible.

Send your dream writing to your coach that day and it will be evaluated and sent back that day.

The purpose of this challenge is to get you paying attention to detail and developing your recall writing.

Keep a dream folder on your computer and type in your word documents each day before sending to your coach.

If you didn't dream the night before, or can't remember dreaming, that's fine. Don't push. Don't think you are not doing well, or that you are failing as a writer. Dreams come and go. Just like ideas. Get used to that. Remember to catch a dream or an idea the moment it arrives, so that you'll have something solid to read and work from later.
