The Daily Writers

A fun way to fulfill your desire to develop a daily writing routine.

 

“A writer is someone who writes.”

— Pat Schneider

Join writers just like you who need accountability and a bit of structure:

    • Receive 1 prompt/writing exercise daily.
    • Write for 10-15 minutes daily.
    • Send your writing to your partner–accountability!
    • 10-15 minutes of reading and commenting on your partner’s writing.
    • 1 writing partner every week.
    • 3 weeks.

 

How The Daily Writers helps you write every day:

Handwritten page of a notebook and a crumpled up piece of paper.

Ideally, each of us would write every day. Very few of us do. It’s easy to skip a day. Who will know? And then a few days go by. A week. A month. Meanwhile, our ideas and stories never make it to the page.

The Daily Writing Prompts program holds you accountable for developing a daily writing habit. With a daily writing prompt and a new writing partner every week, you will no longer be alone as you face the blank page. Receive only encouragement from your writing partner—negativity will not be tolerated*—and respond to their writing. Spend 15 minutes writing and 5-15 minutes reading and commenting on your writing partner’s work. *You can request constructive feedback.

What to expect from The Daily Writers:

    • On the Sunday before the session begins, you’ll receive the name and email address of your partner.
    • Every day at 12:01 a.m., an email with the prompt will arrive.
    • A prompt might be a word, a sentence, or even a photo designed to inspire you.
    • Use the prompt or write whatever you’d like.
    • Write for up to fifteen minutes.
    • No one is expecting a masterpiece.
    • Limit editing to typos and spelling.
    • Email your writing to your partner within 24 hours.
    • If you have to miss a day, just let your partner know.
    • Spend 5-15 minutes reading your partner’s writing and responding.
    • Keep it brief and positive.
    • Reply within 24 hours of receiving the email.
    • No experience commenting on others’s work is required.
    • The facilitators will be available for support.
    • More detailed instructions are provided when you enroll.
