The Rules of #write365

The rules as I see them are as follows:

  1. Pick a date.
  2. From said date, decide the date three hundred and sixty five days later. (to help you, take the year, and add one. You’re welcome. Note that if this is a leap year, we’re talking about #write366, which is two doors down on the right. Tell them Marvin sent you.)
  3. On the first date, write something.
  4. On the last date, also write something.
  5. For the three hundred and sixty-three days between, write more. Preferably daily. Fine if not.

Truly, this is all. The point of this exercise is to write for the period of one year, and watch your personal growth. My personal rules are as follows:

  1. Write everyday, no matter the word count.
  2. Read.
  3. Read more.
  4. Read even more.
  5. When you’re tired of reading, write.
  6. Write more.

That’s it. The strokes can be as broad or as narrow as you prefer. Do you want to write daily and share weekly? Okay. Do you want to write daily and share monthly? Okay. Do you need kicks in the ass everyday to write, write, write? Okay.

If you take your start date, and at your finish date you believe you’ve grown as a writer, you’ve won.

What are your rules for #write365?
