July Writing Challenges

I have a different sort of post for you today. I may have mentioned it briefly before but I am writing a book, well 2 actually but only 1 is my current main focus.

To help me get to grips with it a little more I am taking part in some July challenges.

The first challenge is NaNoWriMo July.

Instead of the usual target of 50k words I have lowered it to 10k. I have attempted to do NaNoWriMo before but always failed, I think this is because the word count was just to unacheivable for me..

There is a book group I am part of on Facebook which have a writer’s group and there are also some from there taking part so the extra support will be great.

For more information on NaNoWriMo you can find it here.

The Facebook group I mentioned is called The Fiction Cafe. Feel free to add yourself.

My second challenge for July is a Project for 1 Book July.

I am doing option 3 – #GoBigOrGoHome.

For this I have chosen to use my 1 book to write an outline for my novel. I am going to work through a workbook which accompanies a book I recently read along with 2 other books by the same author.

The workbook can be found here

My last challenge is just a simple one for myself.

I am going to write for 30 minutes 3 days a week at a minumum. This is something which I feel  can easily do without committing too much of myself and my time.

This feels like the perfect time to really get ahead with my writing. I am only just into my 2nd chapter and everything is still taking shape.

You can read the first paragraph of my novel here in a previous post.

Thanks for reading.
