Writing Streak Challenge - Week 1

Full Details

Welcome to our new Weekly Writing Streak Challenge! Each week for the next eight weeks, we'll post a new writing challenge for you to complete each day. If you complete the challenge, you'll have a chance to be featured on our Instagram!


Each Monday, we’ll post a new challenge for you to complete each day of the week. To participate, do the following:

Monday - Friday
  • Go to Start Writing, then hit the “Free Write” button. 
  • Write your response.
  • Title your piece “Writing Streak,” followed by the week and day (for example: “Writing Streak Week 1 Day 1,” or “Writing Streak Week 1 Day 3”). 
  • When you’ve completed your five daily responses, come back to this prompt, and hit “Start Writing”
  • Title your piece “Challenge Completed.” 
  • In the body, copy and paste the text from all five of your pieces, being sure to title each piece as Day 1, Day 2, etc.
See an example here!


For this challenge, we’re borrowing a page from Orion Magazine. Enumeration—a monthly column—features a numbered list. 10 Words Technology Borrowed from Nature for example, or 8 Meetings Nobody Scheduled. From tips to lessons to wonders to meditations, these spirited lists inspire and inform. 

Give it a try, dear writers. Numerate a list of your own on the topic of your choosing—one list for each day of the week!
