The Finish Your Book Challenge
Do you have a book begging to be finished?
Do you have an idea you want to start and get on market but need help?
**Welcome to our five part Finish Your Book challenge!**
Starting in July we will take off and have our books ready for a group upload party by November. This group is more intense than our monthly First Thursday goal setting sessions but just as supportive and encouraging.
In Part 1 we will set our projects, outline them, set word count goals and word count deadlines.
To make Part 1 be super effective, try to have this ready before you come:
* A short synopsis of your book
* Your genre
* Your ‘competition’ or shelf buddies you’d be placed next to
* An outline of your main character, supporting character, and villain
* An outline of main setting
* Major point to hit for inciting incident, climax, and resolution
Depending on the group size we will break out into smaller rooms to discuss this, or if it’s small, we will stay in one room and share our projects. This makes them more real and helps your fellow Happy Writers ask better questions to keep you moving!
* **The following challenge dates and topics will be:**
**Thursday, August 25:** Writing and deadline updates
**Thursday, September 22:** The finish line for draft one and manuscript swap for beta reads, cover design discussion and resources
**Thursday, October 20:** Manuscript self-edited, secondary editing deadlines, and final questions on your manuscript, discussion on tools for formatting
**Thursday, November 17**: Group upload party and publishing
In between these sessions we will have workshops on cover design, formatting, self-editing, keyword research and more to guide the team and keep us online!
Additionally, anyone who joins from start to finish will be able to pair up with our service partners for discounts on keyword research, editing, cover design, formatting, and more.
To join any of the future dates, you must have attended workshop day one as it will be difficult to add people in and re-explain the process later on.
We cannot wait to finish these projects with you and throw one heck of a party on November 17 when we all upload our books!
