Remember slumber parties? My girlfriends and I would stay up all night talking about boys and dreaming about our futures. We’d play games and eat popcorn and ice cream. We’d take completely age-inappropriate quizzes from our big sister’s magazines. We’d write in each other’s diaries.
Inevitably, the night would get late and someone would suggest a round of truth or dare. The truth questions were always so hard to think up – but we couldn’t wait to dole out the “DARES.”
But let’s play a round, shall we?
Truth or Dare?
If you picked truth, answer this:
“Be totally honest: why haven’t you written a book yet?”
(Psst. Send me your answer.)
If you picked DARE…. I got a good one for you.
No backsies okay?
Write a book in November!
You may know November is NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month.

I’m going to take it easy on you though – to be my writing buddy for November you can write ANY genre – fiction or non-fiction – and you can write a book of any length (but let’s set a floor of 10,000 words, okay?)

I loved playing Truth or Dare as a kid. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me feel closer to my friends.bTake me up on this round of Truth or Dare and you’ll feel the same way. We’ll get to know each other better and as you push yourself (gently) outside of your comfort zone, you’ll grow and change in exciting ways!
Oh – and this is a free program so please share it with anyone you know who might want to join us!
