Write Your A** Off Day

If you're a fiction writer, you probably know about Nanowrimo, where you spend the month of November writing a novel. Chances are, you haven't tried it. Well, next Saturday, you can see if you have what it takes.

The New York Writer's Coalition has declared June 12, 2010, Write Your A** Off Day. It's quite simple. Write 3,000 words, which is about 10 pages, in one day.

Since you're only committing to one day of writing, instead of a month, it doesn't seem like such a huge task. And if you are successful, imagine how easy Nanowrimo will be, since you only have to write 1600 words a day.

If you live in the New York City area (which I don't anymore), you have the added bonus of a free breakfast and lunch, complete with workshops and an author talk by Nicholas Dawidoff. Find out more at the New York Writer's Coalition website.

If you, like me, can't jet to New York for the weekend, don't hesitate to take up the challenge and participate remotely. Find out more here and here. The registration to participate is free, and no matter where you live, if you writer your 3,000 words you can enter for a free private phone consultation with author Jennifer Belle.

So, is anyone going to join me?


  1. Sure, why not. The challenge will be that I'm doing Hike for Habitat earlier in the day. Should be fun!

  2. I've got something going on, too, but I can't remember what it is. Hopefully I'll get the 3K done!

  3. You better remember what you got going on - lol!
