OUR STORY

In 2015, I created a fun little challenge to encourage 84 other writers to write 1000 words a day for a year. The experiment resulted in over 40% of them reaching that goal and another 30% writing over 100k.

 

I relaxed the rules to allow members to set their own goals and made it a personal challenge done in community. 1800+ writers have written over 300 million words in a few short years by helping them build the right mindset and habits,  accountability teams, fun-themed badges, sprinting sessions, weekly emails, contests with feedback, and more.  
 

We strive to create a community where everyone is seen, heard, and supported.

We value FLEXIBILITY. We know you're time and energy are limited. Drop into our private group 2-3 times a week when it fits your schedule. Participate in conversations and learn skills that will help you build and refine your writing routine. All our materials are self-paced. Only our co-working and sprinting sessions are at set times.

We value ACCOUNTABILITY. We formed this group around the truth that it’s significantly easier to reach your goal when you have someone holding you accountable. Share your weekly goals and wins with your team. Crowd source solutions to your writing hurdles, so you can get unstuck quickly.


We value COMMUNITY. We learn better by hearing the same thing in multiple ways and from different perspectives. You won’t find a 12 point map with course work to finish each week, but you will find thought-provoking questions and personal challenges to try. We want you to put 80% of your energy into writing and 20% into learning and sharing. 


We value EQUABILITY. Many writers in our group have chronic illnesses, disabilities, are neurodivergent, or have complex life situations that can be hurdles to having a consistent, productive writing time. We strive to make our resources available in multiple formats. We have no participation requirements. We understand life/illness happen and you may need to step away a few days or weeks to focus on it.


We value SUSTAINABILITY. Our goal is to improve your writing life with sustainable skills that can flex and grow with you. The mindset and habits you learn here, like limiting distractions, can be applied across your life. 

These core values help us serve the many F.A.C.E.S. of our community and are our promise to you.
