March Madness for Writers

Why should the basketball fans hog the month of March? I say that writers have just as much (if not more) claim on going a little crazy over something they love, and that March is an excellent month to flex your writing muscles and try something a bit out of your comfort zone.

Tomorrow I kick off a new month-long writing challenge. Unlike December, which boasts a host of distractions, March tends to be a bit tamer (though Easter has snuck in there at the end this year). It can also be something of a dull month, stuck in between seasons, without much to break it up. Which makes it prime territory for setting some writing goals and mixing up your routine.

As with December, I plan to challenge you all to write every single day, even if just for fifteen minutes. But there will be plenty of opportunities to stretch yourselves beyond basic output, allowing you to customize the challenge to fit your individual goals and aspirations. This will also provide writers used to producing daily to participate at their own level and, I hope, find some fresh inspiration.

So, spread the word, and don’t forget to drop by tomorrow for all the fun challenge details. In the meantime, happy writing!

  1. I’m in. I just finished one manuscript and the plan is to have two more done by the end of the year. Looking forward to the challenge and ispiration. Challenge accepted! 🙂

  2. Interesting!

    March is never dull for me: some of the biggest game conventions are in March so I’ve got a lot of proposals to build, and I’ve been asked to supervise the final project of game-designers-in-the-making one evening a week.

    A little accountability should keep me on track. 😉
