What is the 14-Day Writing Challenge?
As part of the membership, NCFDD has a 14-day writing challenge you can sign up for upon logging into your account. The challenge is simple: write for at least 30 minutes every day (Monday through Friday) for two weeks.

At the end of that time, you can evaluate for yourself:

  • Did daily writing increase or decrease your productivity?
  • Did participation in a community increase/decrease your enjoyment of the writing process?

In the meantime, you’re welcome to join the monthly writing challenges within their Discussion Forums.
