Hey, guess I’m back.
The idea is that you basically need to write at least 500 words daily for 31 days.
I think it’s forbidden to edit (I’m assuming) and you just need to freely write instead.
What’s In It For You?
Well for a starter, if you join this free challenge; you’ll build up some discipline on the habit of writing.
You’ll get a link back from Jeff Goins’ blog next to almost 2,000 other heroic people who took the challenge.
You can join their Facebook group for accountability and even tweet your progress with the hash tag #my500words.
Final but not least important, you can sign up to Jeff’s list and get even more free updates and writing prompts.
And, if you’re interested in becoming a better writer, I strongly recommend you check out what he has published on Amazon.
Challenges In The Past
In case you’re not familiar with what I do, I have done plenty of challenges in the past.
Anything from running marathons with no training, several one hand push-ups, staying sober and yes, even daily writing challenges.
At some point, I was terrified of recording videos and for many reasons, but the biggest one has to be lack of self confidence.
I decided to do a video review challenge for seven straight days to see what would happen and surprisingly enough, it took care of that ridiculous fear I had about doing videos.
In fact, doing videos grew up so much on me, that now I have recorded something around 600 and 700 talking head videos (not keeping count anymore) and I’m definitely going to keep doing more.
So if you ever thought that doing challenges to create good habits (or get rid of bad habits) didn’t work, think twice then.
Where Am I Going To Do This Writing Challenge?
I wasn’t sure if I should use MarketingWithSergio.com or SergioFelix.me
I decided to stop thinking about it and go with the flow.
Short story, I’ll write and publish my daily articles wherever I feel like so it can be either of those two places.
Note: This is the exact part where you get confused because I’m not enticing you to sign up to some e-mail list and get updates.
Trust me, I know what I’m doing.
So with that marketing part out of the way, check this video out now.
500 Words Writing Challenge Video
I recorded this video during my lunch break today.
You’ll get to see a few (or many lol) pronouncing mistakes here and there but that’s who I am.
I don’t have time for perfection anymore or I’d never get anything done.
Keeping Myself Accountable
I’m going to be logging my progress outside of the blog because I need to keep track of other things.
For that, I’m using something called coach.me
So there you have it.
I almost forgot to tell you why I decided to jump on this challenge but I just remembered.
As an Internet Marketer I’m always trying new things and I realized I’ve never published anything on Amazon.
Basically, I want to test the market and also use this challenge as an excuse to write a little bit more seriously.
With that said, thank you for visiting, reading, watching and commenting.
Hope you decide to make something that pushes you forward today.
