Thank you for signing up for the 500 word daily challenge.

Thanks for joining the My 500 Words community! You can find more information below:

The rules

  • Write 500 words per day, every day for 31 days.
  • You can write more if you want, but 500 words is the minimum.
  • Don’t edit. Just write.
  • If you miss a day, pick up where you left off. Don’t make up for lost days.
  • Encourage, don’t criticize (unless explicitly invited to do so).
  • Blogging counts, but email does not.
  • All of this is totally free.

How it works

  1. Leave a comment at the end of this post, saying you’re “in.” Feel free to include a link to your blog.
  2. Write every day and record your progress.
  3. Join the Facebook group for extra accountability and encouragement. You can also follow along via Twitter with the hash tag #my500words.

So… are you in? What will you be writing this month? Share in the comments.
