NatWriCoChallenge: Win 2 FREE Coaching Sessions!

Hey friend! Don’t forget that through to the end of May 2020, I am offering Pay What Feels Right sessions. Send me a message or read all about it Here.

There are a lot of folks who are struggling to get a writing routine down. With all the stress from COVID-19 and everything that comes along with it, there’s a lot of pressure to produce, produce, produce with your time off.

You might be determined to hammer out 2000 words a day, or even just 500.

I find sometimes, when I’m struggling to crank the ol’ brain into creativity mode and focus on a WIP, writing something completely different gets those gears switched. So, I would like to help you. The incentive is the opportunity to win 2 free writing coaching sessions with me.

Natural Writer Coaching Challenge

The challenge is simple. Each day you will have a one-word writing prompt. With that writing prompt:

  1. Write a 250-500 word piece of flash fiction, being sure to meaningfully include the word prompt of that day.
  2. Post it in an Instagram post OR post it in a blog post and share that blog post on IG so I can access it.
  3. Tag me in your IG post with handle @NaturalWriterCoaching
  4. Use the hashtag #NatWriCoChallenge

That’s it.

I do need to be tagged in the post, and the hashtag needs to be used. And I need some access to see your writing piece.

If you post all 31 days, you will be entered into a drawing on June 1st with the potential to win 2 FREE Writing Coaching sessions with me. I will also draw two extra names for 1 1-hour coaching session.

I am not going to be selecting writers on whether or not I think your writing is good, or if your story is satisfactory. Nor am I going to select anyone based on how good their image is. This is going to be purely randomized.

The goal of this is to provide a daily writing exercise. For me, personally, it’s also to see people writing every day and challenging their creative minds.

Your Homework

Your homework is quite simple. And I’m sure You’ve guessed it by now. Participate in this challenge! Starting May 1st get to writing.

And, bonus, though not extra credit, follow me on Instagram Here for other writing and journal prompts.

  1. Reblogged this on Scribing English All Over The Place and commented:

    This is a great way to get little bits of writing done. There’s a single-word prompt for each day, and the idea is that you write 250-500 word story using the word in the prompt. Then you post it on Instagram, or share a link via Instagram, using the hashtag #NatWriCoChallenge.
    Do that for 30 days and possibly with 2 sessions with a writing coach.
    I, of course, can’t enter in to win. That’s just silly. But I plan on participating.
