Write Every Day, Not “Some Day”

Introducing the StoryADay.org Creative Challenge Workbook – An Exclusive Free Offer for friends of StoryADay.org

(That’s you!)

If you’re thinking of signing up for a Creative Writing Challenge — something like StoryADay May or Write1Sub1, NaNoWriMo, ScriptFrenzy, PoemADay, 3DayNovel — this is the workbook for you.

A Powerful Tool For Short Story Writers

The workbook helps you decide if you should sign up for the creative challenge and provides you with tools to help you ‘win’. It leads you through the decision process in a logical way, to help you figure out if this is the right time for you, gives you tools to help you approach the challenge, and shows you what you stand to gain.

You Know You Want To Write But You Keep On Stalling. Why?

Because it’s scary, that’s why!

BUT taking action becomes much less terrifying if you have:

  • A clear picture of how much it could rock your world to live your dream
  • A mentor or role models who show you that it really can be done
  • A toolkit and map to keep you on track after you’ve taken that first big step.

So download this workbook and create your own, personalized toolkit for creativity.

How To Use The Workbook

I strongly recommend sitting down for a quiet half hour, printing out the workbook and writing in your answers. Keep it on hand as your chosen writing challenge begins.

Re-reading your answers later is a great way to tap back into all your early enthusiasm (for example, half way through the challenge when you’re wondering why you ever decided to do this crazy thing!).

What Other People Are Saying

Feedback so far has been full of excitable adjectives and exclamation points, whether from newbie writers or seasoned NaNoWriMo winners. (That surprised me a bit. In a good way.) I’m eager to hear what you think of it.

A Few Last Things

When you have worked through the workbook, I’d love it if you would send me an email (julie at story a day dot org) or leave a comment on this blog post answering one of these questions:

  • What was the most fruitful part of theworkbook for you (the one you could have kept finding answers for all day)
  • Did you discover anything unexpected about yourself?
  • Or just tell me what you thought, and if there are any parts that could be improved. Your input will make future versions of this workbook truly awesome.
