October challenges

I've got two writing challenges for you for next month, thanks to a Twitter pal. (If it was you who tweeted these then let me know and I'll credit you. I relied on my memory which was clearly a silly thing to do.)

The 750 words one month challenge
You have to write 750 words  a day (not a month) for a whole month. If it was 750 words a month I might manage it. (link)

100 words
Write exactly 100 words a day for a month. (link)

I'm not sure which would be harder: writing an exact number of words would be challenging. Anyway, if you accept either of those missions, it should keep you busy till Halloween!

These would really discipline my writing! LOL!

Thanks for the info! Take care

If you use Twitter a lot, I think the 100 words might be easier for you. You're already used to restricting to under 140 characters and I find myself often using *exactly* 140, altering words as much as possible to make it all fit. 100 words is obviously more, but it's still about restriction and writing very precisely.

Kitty, I get the impression you're already writing quite a lot!

Jessi, writing to 140 characters does get to be a habit. Maybe it would be the same with the 100 words.

Pfft, The Koala challenge offers plenty discipline!

McK, the Koala challenge is the scariest one I know of!

Yes, I do agree that writing exactly 100 words would be a challenge - and frustrating if you got into the flow, only to have to stop. The 750 one sounds interesting though!

Simon, you manage 140 characters, although I suppose it's hard to get into the flow in such a short story! I'll be interested to know if you do the 750 one.
