As mentioned before, new writing challenges are being added to the All Indie Writing community. While originally planned as monthly challenges, they're now being set up early and opened to anyone who wants to take them, whenever they want.
You can find these in the writing challenges section of the forum where you can follow others' challenge progress, track and share your own, and chat with other writers pushing themselves toward similar goals.
The newest challenge is an adaptable one. It's a monthly word count goal challenge, where you can set your own goal. That could mean anything from tracking your 50k words for NaNoWriMo in November to tracking a monthly word count goal for a short story collection, novella, or even your blog.
A new writing challenge means you get a new downloadable / printable resource to track your progress with. This time it's a simple word count calendar. Note the month, projects you're focusing on, and your monthly word count goal at the top. Then track daily goals (if you want to set them), daily progress, and weekly progress right on the calendar. Check it out below or visit the writing challenges area of the forum to see what other challenges and resources are currently available.
