NOVEMBER WRITE CLUB CHALLENGE PRIZES!

Hey everyone! Thank you again for participating in the November Write Club Challenge! I so enjoyed going on this journey with you and I hope that you will continue the momentum throughout the holiday season and into the New Year! We sincerely appreciate everyone who contributed to the club - both in your efforts in writing and generous motivation and encouragement of others.  I would like to single out some writers who were truly an inspiration this year, including James Wunderlich, Niksa Maric, Philip Nelson, Susan Joyce DuBosque, PJ Edwards, Earl Tom Devere, Aray Brown, Gayle Herbert Robinson, and DL Stickler.  

These writers continuously contributed to the group, stayed accountable to themselves and others, while updating us on their progress and encouraging others to continue in their efforts.  Each of these members received a free month in the Stage 32 Writers' Room a collaborative environment, comprised of dedicated screenwriters that meets virtually 4 times a month! It is designed to keep us engaged with our fellow writers, expose our work to executives and, most importantly, keep us all writing! 

Please join me in congratulating our November Write Club Challenge Winners! And look for the challenge to come back around in 11 short months!  In the meantime, keep doing the work! 

 

UPDATE #4: This is it! Day 30! 

That's it guys, we have made it! I am looking forward to hearing how you did during the final week of the Stage 32 November Write Club Challenge. We knew it was going to take a lot of discipline to knock out some writing while in the midst of kicking off the holiday season.  I am really proud of those who were able to buckle down and spend some time writing.  

 

                       

 

On behalf of the entire Stage 32 team, thank you so much for your participation in the challenge this year. We Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and will not go unrewarded. Look for prizes and other exciting incentives coming soon!  

In the meantime, have a wonderful rest of your holiday weekend and keep up that writing momentum! No reason to quit now! 

 

UPDATE #3: Stay on Target Next Week! 

What's up my November Write Clubbers! Congratulations on another big, successful, creative week behind us! At Stage 32 we have been giving social media shoutouts to participants who post their progress with #Stage32WriteClub! If you haven't posted your progress yet, don't be shy, your posts inspire others to get in on the action! 

We are heading into Thanksgiving Week and there is a lot of temptation to slack off, but stay strong and stay focused. Of course it is always great to spend time with friends and family during the holidays, but remember to invest a bit of time in your creative endeavors. We have built up a lot of momentum in these last 3 weeks and we don't want to lose steam now.

The Stage 32 November Write Club

Welcome to November fellow screenwriters and creatives! Summer is in the rearview mirror and while the weather may be cooling for most of us,  in the month of November our keyboards are about to heat up. That’s right, scribes, the Stage 32 November Write Club is back and better than ever!

 

Stage 32s November Write Club Lets Do The Work

 

What's The Stage 32 November Write Club?

The Stage 32 November Write Club is a challenge for you to reach your writing goals this month. It's a community of screenwriters and creatives who come together on Stage 32 to support one another and encourage each other to stay committed to your writing this month. Because writing can be an isolated and lonely endeavor, it's our job to change that with November Write Club and challenge you to stay committed. 

Bookmark this blog post because the comments section below is a forum dedicated to the challenge and its participants. This blog is where our daily dose of inspiration will live.

 

What's My Writing Challenge?

As you know, my personal mantra is “do the work,” and for the last 4 years, we have been using the 30 days of November as a time to tackle the Write Club Challenge for you to set a writing goal and see it through. 

That first draft you need to finish? Get on it. That idea you’ve been kicking around in your head? Knock it out. That TV pitch bible that is missing its Season Two arc? Let’s hear it! The goal should be challenging (this isn’t called the Write Club Easy) but attainable. And while no two goals are the same, we’ll support, inspire, and cheer each other on throughout our 30-day endeavors.

 

How Do I Stay On Track?

On Tuesday, November 12 at 1pm let's hang out online together! I will be hosting a FREE Writer Hangout webcast which you can register for here. This is an online webcast where screenwriters and creatives gather to share what you're working on, things that are inspiring you and give you a forum to ask questions you have about your craft, the business or the industry. If you're stuck, we'll help unstick you. If you're in the zone, we'll cheer you on. 

 

So, Are You In?

Then head down to the comments section below and post your goal. Be sure to follow up daily and weekly to share progress and setbacks, highs and lows, ask for thoughts, and offer advice. Remember that the best collaborators are givers, so offer encouragement to your fellow screenwriters by liking and commenting on their posts as well!

All notices and weekly reminders will be posted on this blog, so make sure you're checking back frequently. And while this is not a competition, those who are active and participating each week of November, will earn gifts from Stage 32 - and trust us, you don't want to miss out on the gifts :)

Your next stop should be down in the comments section. Clock starts…..NOW!

I wanted to take a minute and give a very special shout out to our beloved Beth Fox Heisinger who has served as our leader in all of our past November Write Club challenges. Beth, herself, is tending to a huge artistic project that is requiring almost all her attention this month and we couldn't be happier for her! (Make sure to show her some love in the comments section) So, in the meantime, we wanted to share a note from Beth:

Here we go! It’s that time of year, scribes. For the fifth year running, November Write Club is back. I’m so excited for what changes are in store. Unfortunately for me, I am not able to participate this time around due to family obligations and an impending deadline—scheduling just isn’t in my favor this coming month—but, regardless, I will cheer on and support you all the best I can. This 30-day exercise is never about any one person, but rather about encouraging each other to reach our individual goals. And. Get. It. Done. Whatever “it” is for you. We rally together, share a collective mission, and support each other in our efforts and our creative endeavors. Together there’s nothing we can’t do. Let’s get started.
