Monday, June 22 – Sunday June 28, 2009 § Days #1 - #5
Welcome to the first week of the 100 Days . . . Challenge, where we can write it, one minute at a time!
How to get started:
- Download and print the tracker for weeks #1 – 5 (the link is on the right hand side of the blog)
- Post the tracker on your fridge or wherever you will see it daily (consider giving yourself rewards for meeting weekly goals)
- Start writing. All you need to do to meet this week's challenge is write on 5 separate days of the week for a minimum of 15 minutes each day and complete the weekly exercise (you can complete this during one of your 15-minute writing sessions, if you like)
- Feel free to post a small section of your writing, tell us what you achieved during the week, or simply let us know that you met the weekly goal (this will help keep us inspired and moving forward)
This week's exercise: Select a novel or story that you love. Read a favorite paragraph several times. Then write for a minimum of fifteen minutes in that same style. This means you can copy tone, sentence structure, style, pacing, topic, or whatever you like most about the passage.
Successfully complete this week's challenge and you earn the rank of Copycat.
