Project Description

Your 10-Day Challenge

ASSIGNMENT

Commit to writing 10 minutes for just 10 days.

  • Day 1-9: Every day, write for 10 minutes on the prompt "Today I noticed . . ." Write about your surroundings, experience, or even other events. Elevate the art of the everyday!
  • Day 10: Revise your work to create a standalone piece of writing.

You'll finish this challenge with a piece you're proud to share — and one that can serve as a start for your next story or essay.

  

DELIVERABLE

Share your work for feedback from fellow students.

  • Option 1: Use your Project Workspace for your daily freewriting. Write right in the textbox!
  • Option 2: If you prefer to write by hand, consider typing a few entries during revision, or sharing photos of your hand-written entries in your Project Workspace.

    

FAQs

Start now! There are no set "dates" to the challenge. Start and finish your 10 days on your own schedule. You can even do it several times.
