Frequently Asked Questions

No, absolutely not! The Free Five-Day Writing Challenge is ideal for writers of every experience level—or none at all. Our motto is The only way to do it wrong is to not do it at all. So, join us and just start writing!

Not one penny!

You may write as much or as little as you wish. You can do all or some of the daily lessons, or none at all. This is your challenge.

To take full advantage of the challenge, we encourage you to set aside fifteen minutes per day to watch the video lessons and then time to complete the writing assignment. How much time to dedicate to writing is up to you, a little or a lot.

You’ll have access to all content for sixty (60) days after you receive access to the final video.
