June – Write a Page a Day Challenge

I came across and interesting challenge, in which you write a page a day for the month of June. Sounds a little crazy, right? So I said heck yea, I’m in!

Author. Old School Writer

Nothing to verbose in the details mind you, on the ‘how to’s’ of one page a day. Doesn’t mean you have to stop at one page, but at a minimum you’re putting in the effort of at least a page. Now, if your one of those types that need a bit of direction as to what one page equals here you go:

One page will equal the US standard of 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper or computer screen, double spaced and typed is equal to about 500 words. Granted depending on word use and font selected it could be less or a few more.

How I will go about this challenge isn’t some long winded novel exercise, that will stress me out. I will tackle a few blogs, poetry, and short stories. Write some non-fiction along the way as well. My only rule, it’s not for my day job it’s got to be outside of it (i.e., non-fiction catergory).

What will I get out of it? Besides pure joy that I did it. The plan is a compilation of short stories to either further develop or tune up for ePublication. I have this idea a few shorts on a particular topic would be fun since I’ve been reading those lately. Also, I’m getting in the habit of more writing versus weekend flights of fancy. The day job has been a killer on my time lately along with other priorities of life.

So are you crazy enough to join me? What would you want to accomplish a page a day?
