Welcome to Writing Week - my FREE 7-day nonfiction writing challenge. Before creating this challenge, I read a lot of books and did quite a bit of research on what works best for productive writers. Notice, I didn’t say speed writers, but productive writers.


One of the goals of this challenge is to help you write more words by developing a writing habit. But, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to write fast in your writing sessions. It means you’re going to make progress at the speed that is best for you.

Over and over in my research I found writers raving about the Pomodoro Technique and how it helps them focus, find their writing zone, and get more quality writing done than almost any other strategy. Join us at: www.writingweek.com

Welcome to Writing Week - my FREE 7-day nonfiction writing challenge. Day three is about setting writing goals. The goal of this 7-day challenge is not to finish writing a book (although some of you may do just that), but to help you get in the habit of writing every day. My hope is you will create a writing habit that will last far beyond these seven days. But, don’t be afraid to start small and build up over time. Whether you are starting small or scheduling longer blocks of time to write, set a goal. You’ve probably heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals. S.M.A.R.T. goals are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Join us at: www.writingweek.com

The idea for this episode came from an illustration our pastor shared in tonight's service.  So many times we try to be something we're not OR we simply blend in.  However, God has created us each unique with unique gifts to share with the world to have impact.  Romans 12:2 says, "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (NKJV) I encourage you to let your light SHINE!
