What’s your New Year’s resolution? Ours is to write more.
Okay, ours is to cut back on Cupcake Fridays and to write more.
Fine—ours is to have better posture, cut back on Cupcake Fridays, and write more.
While Figment can’t provide lumbar support or satisfy a sweet tooth—yet!—it can help you write more in 2012. We’re starting Figment Daily Themes, a brand-new prompt-a-day writing challenge. We’ve got a new writing challenge for every weekday from January 2 to March 30. This isn’t your amateur “include a cupcake!” writing prompt either. Each prompt is designed to hone your craft and to get you focused on specific elements of both fiction and non-fiction writing. And we’ll have some extra-special themes sprinkled throughout, courtesy of some of our favorite authors like Lev Grossman (The Magicians), Curtis Sittenfeld (Prep) and Dana Goodyear (The New Yorker).
How do you get in on the sweet writing action? Sign up to receive Daily Themes to your email. You can sign up at any point over the three month run, but those who start early will have a leg up on the competition in receiving the new badge and getting a shot at editorial shout-outs.
Yes. NEW BADGE. EDITORIAL SHOUT-OUTS. That’s the Figment equivalent of peanut butter and peanut butter cupcakes. When you write your Daily Themes responses on Figment and tag them DailyThemes, you can earn the new badge and have one of your pieces featured for being superduperexcellent.
Get cracking and click here to sign up before Daily Themes starts so you can be one of the first to snag the badge!
