Writing Challenge Update!

On The Write Focus, we're posting a daily podcast from Write a Book in a Month, by Remi Black.

Daily check-ins include the project stage progressing word count as well as speculations on writing in general and the writing business in particular.

Criteria for the Challenge:

1] Daily Word Count
2] Length to Goal
3] Reason for the Goal

Each of the April episodes is running less than 10 minutes. Listen briefly every day or hoard up several episodes for when you fix a quick dinner, drive a short commute, or take a brisk walk.

Lessons for writing happen along the way!

Each episode in April will conclude with the two quotations from professional writers (Hemingway! Heinlein! Atwood! More!!!) that opened and closed her day's writing sessions.

April 1 :: No Fooling
April 2 :: Change of Plans
April 3 :: Stick with the Plan
April 4 :: Nix Distractions
April 5 :: Watch for Warnings
April 6 :: Life Rolls
April 7 :: Win-Lose-Wind
April 8 :: Critical vs. Creative
April 9 :: Eat the Frog First
