Choose My Next Writing Challenge
While having coffee with +LoriWidmer yesterday, I mentioned I was thinking about letting my readers choose my next big #writing
challenge or experiment.
I'm not sure if I'm a total glutton for punishment or if I just trust you guys and gals an awful lot, but I decided I'm going to run with this idea.
So here's the deal:
I want you to submit #challenge
or experiment ideas here in the comments or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll narrow it down and put up a survey next week.
What kinds of things am I looking for? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- A certain word count goal for the month
- Drafting a novel or nonfiction book in a certain amount of time
- An experiment related to running or launching a blog
- Writing a certain number of blog posts in a set amount of time
You can get creative with it. And these can be big -- think anywhere from a week to a few months. Just keep it in line with the kind of work I actually do (for example, writing a poetry collection probably won't make the short list).
You can be as tough on me as you want. I don't shy away from a challenge.
My only real "rule" is other #writers
should be able to learn something from my experience -- whether I succeed or fail. Depending on the nature of the challenge, I'll either share progress reports as I go or publish a write-up at the end.
So if you want to know if something can realistically be done, and you want someone to test that for you, propose the challenge. Or if you just want to see if you can push me to my limits for sh*ts and giggles, but me documenting the process would still help other writers, I'm cool with that too.
So let me have it! What writing challenge would you like to see me take on next?
