• Rough Trade Boot Camp

    in Entertainment

    July’s challenge is going to be structured differently. I’ve been sort of locked into that whole NANO challenge mindset but that can get kind of boring after a while and I think I personally burned myself out a little trying to do one in November AND in April. Instead of a month long challenge I’d like to do 2 one week challenges with a maximum word count. These will be called Boot Camps.


    Boot Camp I: July 6 – July 12.


    Theme: Stargate: Atlantis
    Maximum Word Count: 10,000
    Details: Day one and two are for plotting, world building, character development. Days three through seven are for writing. Two thousand words a day.


    Boot Camp II: July 20 – July 26


    Theme: Harry Potter
    Maximum Word Count: 10,000
    Details: Day one and two are for plotting, world building, character development. Days three through seven are for writing. Two thousand words a day.


    Signs up for Rough Trade Boot Camp will begin shortly and the site will be cleaned and prepped for the challenge on June 15th.


    In order you succeed in this challenge you MUST work within the established word count and write a complete short story. This is a skill all writers need. Trust me on this.
