Anyone up for a 50K challenge in June? I know I have read posts where my fellow PBS writers need an extra kick start to begin writing and this is the perfect chance.

You can write any genre novel or even fanfiction. Maybe the sequel to that Jane Austen novel or your own version of some classic.

If so then join me doing the Southern Cross Novel Challenge. SoCNoC

Its hosted by a bunch of very friendly New Zealanders who are excited about writing and encouraging others to write. Weekly pep talks, daily blog messages to help you write, plus if you have any handy tips for writing you are also invited to submit a blog entry.


I have done 2 NaNO's and the first annual SoCNoC, won all of them. I shall be doing two novels this time, the exact plot I have yet to work out but I am not sweating it.

I will be hosting the kick off online party in their chatroom, and seem to be the North American liason person.

Would love a big group of my fellow PBS writers to join me and make this a grand fun time.
