On September 10th, I started the Go Teen Writers 100 for 100 challenge. I am proud to say that on Wednesday I completed the challenge with a total of 16,886 words. This challenge pushed me to the point where I am nearly finished my first draft of my work in progress.
This challenge was great for me because I got continual words on the page that I would not have done if not for the motivation that this challenge gave me. With a busy school schedule I would always worry that I would not be making time to write. The challenge took away some of the anxiousness because I knew that I was going to get words on the page. While the chunks weren’t huge, I was getting words on the page and that is what mattered.
I want to thank Stephanie Morrill for putting this all together. Over 200 people started the challenge and less than half successfully completed the challenge. That is a lot of words to tally. She does so much for us on Go Teen Writers.
I am looking forward to the next 100 for 100 in February, and I anticipate what I will continue to learn on GTW.
