The Hour a Day Challenge Starts Friday!

This is your final reminder that the September Hour a Day Challenge begins this Friday, September 1. You can find all the details in my post from last week, right here. The basic idea is that you join a nice, friendly, low-key Facebook Group for the month, and, along with the other members, pledge to carve out ONE hour a day for your writing for the 30 days of September.

If you’re still in the summer doldrums, or if your writing has been taking a back seat to your other responsibilities for a little too long, the Hour a Day Challenge is a great way to get back in the groove!!!

I just got back from taking my eldest to the East Coast for her freshman year of college (waaaaaaaaah!!!) so I’m still catching up on adding people to the Facebook Group, where those who want the added boost of accountability can check in and get daily encouragement. If you want to be added, I’ll get you added within the next couple of days. If we’re not already Facebook friends, please send me a Friend Request (Elisa Beatty).

I’m SO ready to get started!!! How about YOU?

    Okay, Sept is a big writing month for me, so YES. I’m going to try like mad to do at least one hour a day. Thanks!

  6. I’m sorry I missed your post last week. I’ve actually been digging in with my writing. I’ve been working on the same book since the Winter Writing Festival and it’s only HALF finished. NOT acceptable.

    Life’s been getting in the way, and it’s only going to get worse in the next few months. If I want to get this book published before the end of the year I HAVE to do something.

    So please add me to your FB accountability page, Elisa. I’m not sure going on FB every day isn’t going to lure me to the dark side of scrolling through posts, but I’m going to try to resist! 🙂

    I can’t wait for September 1!!!
