About Us

In 2015, I started this fun little challenge to get 70 other writers to write 1000 words a day for a year. That group has now grown into an annual challenge, with hundreds of writers, setting personal goals and writing their hearts out. We've written over 150 million words in those few short years and learned the power of building the habit of writing within a supportive environment of accountability.  

 

My admin team of seasoned writers will help you set goals, write words, and build the habit of consistency through weekly accountability, earning fun-themed badges, sprinting opportunities, and webinars, emails, and contests to help you learn and grow. 

This year we're going bigger and better, adding a tab to our spreadsheet for time spent building your platform, in addition to our critique and editing hours recognition. We know that balancing marketing and platform while getting your writing done can be tricky. We want to give you the tools to do both. I'm so excited to see what we accomplish in 2021 as we shoot for the stars.
