Challenge Number 2

Happy Writer

Hope you are enjoying challenge number one. It is important to remember the importance of writers helping writers. Think about your mentors and think about those who you have helped with their writing.

So during the next week we have challenges for both ourselves and for you. Our challenge is to finalize the speakers at the March 14th WAY Conference. We have all but one ready to go. Classes will include plot, writing skills, publishing and more. Keep watching for more information.

Your challenge during the next week is to write 1,500 to 2,000 words. The subject is “To improve my writing skills, I am ____________.”

WAY 2015


Wordle: WAY2

A new year and new challenges face us all. Today I have both news and a challenge for all of you.

First, the news.

Our first WAY Writers Conference of 2015 will be Saturday, March 14th. All the details for the conference will be available on this website in a few days. Keep watching for it.

Second, the challenge.

There a number of books on the market written by authors about what is important in the writer’s life. I would like to post a number of articles on that subject for young writers, by young writers. Therefore, I challenge each of you to write articles for this series. There will be four topics to write on during the month – one topic per week. Each article should be 1,500 – 2,000 words each. That means writing about 300 words a day.

At the end of each week, please submit your article at the WAY email so it can be shared with other young authors.

This week’s topic is “My Advice to Authors.”
