Writing 101 starts Monday. Have you registered yet?

If you’ve taken Writing 101 before: yes, these will be the same prompts and twists. Blogging U. courses always repeat unless we specifically indicate that a course is new.

Writing 101: Building a Blogging Habit is a write-every-day challenge designed to help you create a writing habit and push you as a writer. Read on, or jump right to registration.

What is Writing 101?

Who else is really building their writing habit?… I wake up multiple times each night to check the time and see if it’s time to get up and write because I’m so excited. I’ve never felt this way before! I think I’m in lurve.

Writing 101 is a four-week course that runs from Monday, April 6, to Friday, May 1, 2015. Each weekday, you’ll get an assignment that includes a writing prompt and an optional “twist”; prompts are your topic inspiration for the day, while twists push you to experiment with writing techniques and tools.

You can mix assignments however you like: Respond to the prompt, and ignore the twist. Try the twist, but write on your own topic. Use both the prompt and the twist. Publish what you write on your blog, or use it as private writing practice. It’s up to you! The only mandate is that you write every weekday.

The nitty-gritty:

  • You’ll receive a new writing prompt via email each day at 12AM UTC. (Not sure what time that is for you? Use this converter to figure out your local time.)
  • There are no weekend assignments — you’re free to expand on a weekday post, write something unrelated, or (gasp!) spend some time away from your blog.
  • As in all Blogging U. courses, participants will have a private community site, the Commons, for chatting, connecting, and seeking feedback and support. Daily Post staff and Happiness Engineers will be on hand in the comments to answer your questions and offer guidance and resources.
