To support our followers through the Coronavirus lockdowns and beyond, WriteMovies is launching our 100-Day Creative Challenge. It’s a simple daily structure to help you all keep positive, focused and successful – compiled from our acclaimed WriteMovies Academy, to help you all build and grow momentum every day!
The Challenges get you creating whatever suits you – useful notes, sketches, scripts – while growing in a core aspect of writing every day. Sharing your activity on social media (or directly to us for mentoring, through our new Academy Lite service) can also keep you connected and mutually supported. See WHY we’re doing this here, and also how to build a new PLAN and routine that will get you through the lockdown in the best way possible, for everyone’s sake.
The core of the 100-Day Creative Challenge is:
- A daily prompt to fulfil a short daily routine that will keep you positive, motivated and progressing
- A 30 minute task to achieve this, which includes:
- 20 minutes spent either writing, making sketches or notes, based on a short and simple prompt
- 10 minutes of reflection and sharing from the activity you’ve done, to recognize what it has taught you about yourself and your writing, and get peer support via social media, or by submitting to us at WriteMovies.
- The momentum and stimulation to carry forward into the rest of your day – hopefully enabling you to be creative, productive, focused and successful every day through the lockdown and beyond.
We’re giving all of the 100-Day Creative Challenges away FREE, and we can also directly feed back and mentor you daily for under $5 a day through our new Academy Lite service (click HERE to find out more). We’re publishing 1 new half-hour Challenge every weekday from April 27th 2020 to September 18th – you can start and finish whenever you like. Completing the CC successfully can inspire the rest of your day, especially at the start of your working day (or commuting time!), but you can do it anytime.
Below is an index of all 100 CCs, which links to them all when they’re published: usually after midnight in Los Angeles/PST for the day ahead, or around 3am New York/EST and 8am London time! Why not start every weekday with our new CC?
Make a commitment to the WriteMovies 100-Day Creative Challenge today, and feel the benefit every day afterwards!

Here’s how!
Use our hashtag #100DayCC on your social media!
And when you undertake a specific day’s Challenge, add the number of the challenge to the hashtag, so you can use it to see what other people have said about the same challenge! For example Day 13 would be #100DayCC13. This can allow you to come back to discussions around the same activity days, weeks and months later and compare your experiences to what others found when they did the same activity.
