This is the ONE THING that I did in 2015 that changed everything for me as a writer!
The 356K Club is a subgroup of 10 Minute Novelists. It’s also FREE!
What is 365K Club? It’s an organized group of writers who encourages and supports each other as they try to write an average of 1000 words a day, every day for a calendar year.
In 2015, the 365K Club had over 80 people sign up. By September, this group had written over 13 million words. This group is making a difference in the lives of writers. And you are welcome to join us!
I’ve written 365K words each year for two years and this is what I’ve noticed about my writing:
I am mentally stronger.
I am completely free of my self editor.
I compose ridiculously fast.
I have a stash now of nearly a million words (if you add 2014 in too) that I can use as raw materials for future pieces.
I’m less intimidated by new scenes or new topics or new ideas. (New genres too!)
My vision for my career is clearer because I’ve played around with different ideas and know what I don’t like.
I’m organized (because I have to find what I wrote)
I’m more productive in other areas of my life because I’ve made writing a priority.
I feel less and less like an amateur or a poser. I feel more and more like a real writer who takes their craft seriously.
I’m not telling you all of this to pat myself on the back. I’m telling you this because I am TOTALLY SOLD on the discipline that comes with a daily writing habit. I KNOW that it revolutionized my writing. There has been NO NEGATIVES to this.rself?
If you haven’t already, to think about how you are going to grow as a writer in 2016. Besides all the other wonderful resources this group can offer you, I really want to point your attention to 365K Club.
How To Join:
The 365K Club is for members of the Facebook group 10 Minute Novelists. Click here to join! Then, watch for the registration announcement.
10 Minute Novelists is a lively, international group of over 1300 writers worldwide who are time-crunched, yet have big, big dreams. Any kind of writer can join us! It’s free and easy!
You’ll also be given a link to a group spreadsheet where you can post your daily word count and compare your progress to everyone else’s. You’ll have a calculation that tells you how far you have to go and if you’re eligible for the monthly badge.
Your goal is to write an average of 1000 words a day. That’s an average. So if you miss a day, you are free to make it up later. If you get a great idea and slap down two thousand words on it, then you’re ahead. The point is that you are developing the regular habit of writing discipline.
What can you write? Anything that can be used in the context of developing your craft. This would include short stories, poems, blog posts, drafts of novels, creative non-fiction, description, dialogue, rants, character sketches, dreams, handwritten journal entries etc. What it doesn’t include: emails, writing that you do for your 9-5 job, tweets, Facebook statuses, articles you write if you are a professional writer, thank you notes, shopping lists, reviews on Amazon.com.
