More than a writing challenge.
It's the beginning of a lifestyle.


Sitting down to write each day is of utmost importance, and that's exactly what the 21-day Launchpad Challenge will help you do.

As your daily writing habit sets in, you're starting to feel more like the author you want to be ...

... you're seeing the results you've worked so hard for ...

... and the novel you've always been "wanting to write" actually exists. Wow!

And there's something else. It's hard to say just what it is—a sparkle in your eye, a spring in your step, maybe—but other people in your life are seeing it, too.

You've become the author of a novel, and you're experiencing the new lifestyle that goes along with it.

And this is only the beginning. The beginning of a whole new relationship with writing.

Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need to go anywhere? Or be somewhere at a certain time?

You'll complete the Challenge from the comfort of your home, but each day, you'll be able to check in on our community page at the ChapterBuzz website.


What is my word count goal?

Your goal is to write 1,000 words a day for 21 days. That's about one-fourth the length of an entire, completed novel!


I've already started on my novel. Can I still enter?

Yes! Whether you're starting from scratch or adding to a half-finished novel, you're invited to join in.


Is any genre allowed?

Just about! Most of our writers are working on fiction novels, but not all. For a little more detail about genres, please see Is any genre allowed? in our general FAQ.


Do I have to post my writing publicly?

You do not have to post your material publicly in order to complete the Launchpad Challenge, but you would be missing out on half the fun! Feedback from readers and other writers can be especially useful and informative at this stage.


What if I'm not confident in my writing, or unsure about the best way to write my novel?

At this stage, don't worry about how great your writing is—just do your best, since it's still very much a rough draft this early on. Realizing that it by no means has to be perfect might take the pressure off just enough to accomplish the real objective: getting those words onto paper.
