Accountability + Your Writing Goal = #ChanceChallenge
While the calendar still says summer, fall is in the air. It's been crisp here in Northern Virginia and this time of year always makes me want to hunker down and write (preferably with a hot cup of coffee and a few autumn candles burning on my desk!). I have a couple of projects I'm working on right now that I'm really excited about, and I'm even more excited to tackle them during #ChanceChallenge!
For those who may be unaware, #ChanceChallenge kicks off today. It's a NaNoWriMo-esque writing challenge started by YA author, Kim Chance (who also happens to be my writer wife and #CPlove! ), and the great thing about this challenge is that it allows you to create your own writing goal. It doesn't have to be 50K like Nano—it can be anything! Revise/edit 300 pages. Write 20 chapters. Draft 10K or more on that shiny new idea that's been brewing in the back of your head! All goals are welcome and will be cheered on using the #ChanceChallenge tag, the corresponding forum on Kim's website, and through myWriteClub (where writer buddies can keep track of each other's goals).
#ChanceChallenge isn't just about hitting your target—it's about fostering the support, community, and accountability to help you get there.
Interested in joining the challenge? Check out these steps!
