Face Your Fear Friday - Episode 1

Today's Friday, and that means it's time to, "Face Your Fear."

Every Friday, you'll be given three days to meet a personal goal, and report back on what you learned, even if you don't complete your goal as planned, do you best to learn at least one thing that will help your writing process in the long run. If abundant success comes from countless failures, you will learn something worth learning, even if you didn't meet the goal as intended.

Be kind to yourself. Pick a goal that you know won't require more you can give in three days, something you know your writing lacks, and won't inherently require a certain kind of study or focus you know you can't achieve in that short a time frame.

For example, most writers can't draft a book or even short story in a day or two, however bad, but we can study up on craft and catch up on some market or story research.

Here are the rules (Only 3)

1. Pick a challenge that will aid in honing a weak point in your writing process. Small enough to finish over three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday before Midnight)

2. Comment on this post before Midnight about the writing challenge you're giving yourself and why.

3. Report back here again in the comments on Monday before 1:00 AM Tuesday, EST. What was your weekend challenge? Did you complete complete the challenge, and if not, what did you learn from your challenge that will help your writing in the long run?

To all those who join me in this challenge, I wish you all luck.

So go and face that fear!
