You need to write every single day.

Developing a daily writing habit is the single most effective thing you can do to grow as a writer, but life often gets in the way.

Enter Write500, a simple challenge: Write 500 words every day.

500 words every day is (by Nebula Awards standards):

  • a daily blog post, or
  • a novelette in three weeks, or
  • a novel every three months

500 words every day is a 15 minute commitment (at 35 wpm), or one coffee break.

500 words every day might sound too little ("why not 1000? 2000?"), but is an achievable micro-commitment, and a sustainable habit.

500 words every day will help you get comfortable with a daily routine, even if those words are never read by anyone else.

500 words every day could be the only thing standing between you, and realizing your dream as a writer.
