Mardi Gras, Lent, and a 40 Day Challenge

Did you party it up on Fat Tuesday? Maybe some of you celebrate Lent afterward or not? Where am I going with all of this?

I’ve decided to turn the next 40 days into my own personal quest to write more fiction every single day. I already write a lot, but I usually take a day or two off from it each week. Now, for the next 40 days and nights I’ve challenged myself to write a minimum of 1,000 to 2,000 words a day, each day, and every day. 

This probably doesn’t sound too crazy to some of you, but I prefer to grow my writing career in baby steps. So how do you challenge yourself to write during the week? Do you have a set word count or goal in mind when you sit down and write?
