31 Days Wrap Up

31 days Wrap Up! 

First off – everyone who took part successfully moved the needle on what they finished. This is huge for an author. Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself. I know I’m really excited for you. 

This last month at our weekly wrap-ups we did giveaways. 

The first week was an Edit – this edit is for a single short story during the month of September. That award went to MiyaWrites. You should visit her stream channel. You’ll love it there.

The second week was for a year subscription to 4TheWords – that award went to TheUniqueLee who kindly contributed some accountability tools for the whole team! Such a wonderful support gift. 

The third week was for a premade book cover from GoOnWrite.com – They are incredible cover designers. – Licia who creates really intense worlds, won the cover. I am going to enjoy seeing them released into the world. 

Our last award was a bundle of all three. That was awarded on the 31st to UncleToBen – he runs a family fun variety channel usually, but was happy to step in and do more writing streams than his usual once a week while he was accomplishing 31 stories in 31 days. 

All of our streamers have been wonderful. We can thank so many who stepped in and stayed on schedule for the event. Special mentions:

CoffeeQuills wrote without prompts, but created a full short story daily. 

Angsthase used the prompts, created a story a day, and filled in a lot of empty slots. Thank you for taking on so many extra hours!

Belldandy245 and MiyaWrites both stepped in to fill gaps and help ensure our 31 days authors could find a 31 days streamer during the day. 

NursingGeek was kind enough to begin her writing streamer career during the challenge to help keep the momentum going. 

We’ve got so many others I am likely going to miss in this blog post, but thank you all for streaming and chatting and writing at your pace. Every minute you shared this event, the community felt your support.

In the future- Watch for the InExhaustible Media Twitch channel and YouTube. We’ll have that in place before our next event in January. That’ll be where the whole 31 days streamers will be shared for all to see. Currently, the plan will include hosting a regular schedule video that will play the schedule of our known streamers and how to find them on twitch. It will also share some book trailers if you’re looking for a good book to read, and a variety of additional things to provide value to our writing community. 

For streamers, they can look forward to orientation some time in December to prep for the January event. That’ll be fun too. I’m looking forward to ‘meeting’ all of you in Discord before we start writing like madmen. 

Also watch for 31 Tales – a Charity Magazine filled with incredible writing for all to enjoy!

The fourth quarter is going to be amazing.

I can’t wait to share more with you as we go along. Keep Writing.
