Well done, writers. I am very proud. It was a tough year, but you kept going. A special thank you to the essential workers who gave up their challenges to keep us safe.
Be proud of yourself, writer. Even if you wrote one or four or five or eight stories. You have one or four or five or eight more stories than you had before. We’re living through a pandemic. We all react differently and have different circumstances. Be kind to yourself and be proud of yourself.
We have an amazing year planned on Deadline for Writers. We are writing novels, poems and short stories. Which challenge will you choose?
