This challenge is closed for entry now, but keep an eye out for the next one!

Do you want to be inspired to write daily? To overcome the blocks that are stopping your flow? To understand the techniques you need to make your work sing? Or even get some guidance on what the heck to do next with your first draft?!

Here at Writing.ie, we’re bringing back our super successful Write Here, Write Now Challenge (check out the testimonials below!) Run via a private Facebook group, it is aimed at getting you out of your head and writing regularly and consistently, and costs just €35 for the full week of challenges and coaching.

Our CHALLENGE STARTS ON Monday 13th September 2021, with the group opening on Friday 10th September 2021 so that you can drop in to introduce yourself, meet each other and check out our supporting resources – sign up now to guarantee your place. You need a Facebook page to get involved, but if you don’t have one, you can set up a private one with no information on it, and delete it at the end of the challenge.

Run by a Number One bestselling author and a journalist and coach, it’s designed to overcome blocks and give you invaluable hints and tips to make your writing flow.

And it really works!

Our last challenge was an outstanding success. It was full of energy, it was busy, it was motivating, inspiring and had our participants delighted with what they achieved with us in one week.

If you’ve struggled to focus during the pandemic and need to get your writing mojo back, this week is what you need!

Are you always promising to write more, but not delivering? Do you spend all your time thinking about writing, dreaming about writing, doing the odd bit of writing but getting overwhelmed and lost in a haze of can I? Should I? Will I? Questions that leave you going around in circles and getting more and more dejected and NOT WRITING?!

Then do not waste another second!

Sign up for the Writers Ink WRITE HERE, WRITE NOW 6 Challenge and start to turn your writing dreams into reality. You only need 30 minutes a day to join in with our exercises, but if you have more time, we have tons of resources and Sam Blake and Maria McHale are live every evening for an hour at 7pm, to discuss the day, give you even more tips and help, and to answer your questions.

Places are limited so click HERE join us now!

No more stressful, inconsistent efforts, that leave you frustrated – we’re going to make sure your writing becomes ‘effortless’ (in as much as writing ever is!)

This is what will make the difference between you and those writers who just write, no matter what!

Our CHALLENGE STARTS ON Monday 13th September 2021

Once payment is received, you’ll be taken to a page that gives you tips for making the most of the challenge and a link to the private Facebook group. You will be admitted to the group at 3pm on Friday 23rd April 2021 – the challenge will start on Monday 26th – get ready! Places are limited so don’t leave yours to chance!

This challenge is hosted by Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin aka Number One bestselling author Sam Blake and journalist and NLP coach Maria McHale.

What happens during the Write Here Write Now Challenge?
This five day challenge will give you the building blocks for your story or novel – characters, location, and conflict. There is no right or wrong way to make this work for you, but we prefer you to follow the exercises rather than use your WIP, in order for you to stretch your creative wings.

Each day there will be one daily task, this will take between 10-20 minutes to complete (you can devote as much time as you wish). Paste your piece into the appropriate section and you will see how your fellow writers have approached the same challenge. Read, enjoy and critique the individual pieces alongside Sam Blake who will also be giving on the spot feedback on a broad selection of each day’s entries.

We’re going to be looking at character, setting, story development, dialogue and beginnings. We’re also going to take as serious look at those other writer problems like writers block, imposter syndrome and building good writing habits.

You’ll be given EXCLUSIVE access to our private challenge members only Facebook group, along with everyone else taking part in the challenge – safe to say our last participants found this to be a fabulously motivating and inspiring community. Places are limited so don’t hang around!

Here’s what our last participants had to say…

Every day we will share one action item in the group for you to complete and you can then post your results in the comments for feedback if you wish, and the rest of the group can see how you got on.

Each task can be done in 10-20 minutes and we’ll be on hand answer any questions you have. The best bit is the wonderful energy and community vibe that comes from joining a challenge – it’s infectious!
There’s nothing like a reliable and supportive community to turn to when you get stuck – and the challenge always delivers on that.
