W-1: Do three 5-minute writing sprints.

A writing sprint is an exercise designed to loosen you up and get the words flowing. Set your timer for five minutes and write. Don’t stop to think or take your fingers off the keys until the timer dings.

And the Book We Want to Share with You is …

If you’ve been keeping up with the daily Write by Midnight Bingo challenges, you might have a Bingo by now. So now it’s time to share the writing craft book we want you to have a chance to win.

Each of the WriteOwls have found this book to be full of practical and inspiring advice about writing for young readers. We’ve also had the pleasure of hearing the author speak at a writing conference hosted by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. We’ve LOVED The Magic Words and everything its author, Cheryl B. Klein, has done to encourage aspiring writers. So let us help you have a chance to read it, too.

To be eligible to be entered into a drawing for a chance to receive a copy of her book, here’s what you need to do:

1. Follow @WriteOwls on Twitter and subscribe to this blog for a daily shot of Write by Midnight tips and encouragement.

2. Tweet a picture of your card (showing the marked spaces for the challenges you’ve already completed) to @WriteOwls and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a chance to receive the book. Be sure to include #WriteByMidnight2020 with each tweet to be eligible. You can be entered up to 12 times if you complete the entire card.

3. All entries will be due by midnight EST on Saturday, Feb. 29. One winner will be drawn from all eligible entries and announced here and via Twitter on Monday, March 9.

We can’t wait to see how much you’ve accomplished!
