Writing challenges

There are no end of writing challenges out there, but the most important ones are those which you know will stretch you personally. I accepted a challenge to write a novella earlier this year. For ages I had no idea what to write about. Then I saw something on the TV one day at the gym and my mind started to tick.

I found a submission opportunity and set aside August and half of September to write my novella. On Tuesday I completed it and sent it off. I’m so pleased I did it and I’m very happy with what I’ve written. Whether or not anyone else does is completely outside my control so I’ll just wait and see.

On to the next writing challenge.
