New Year Writing Challenge

Show the judges of that fellowship or residency you didn’t get — and yourself — how committed you are to the project you applied for. Follow the plan you painstakingly laid out in your pitch, and finish writing that non-fiction treatise, book of poems, short story collection, or novel. I will be following The Miles Morland Foundation Scholarship‘s terrifying and intriguing prescription for finishing a novel in a year: writing 10,000 words a month. At an average of 250 words per page, that nets out to 480 pages. I’ll report back in December.
