COBG deals a lot with writing and this challenge is to get you to focus. It’s so that we can just write straight through and get some traction on our stories, books, etc. If this weekend is successful, we’ll plan an even bigger writing challenge and maybe even a contest! Rules1.  The actual writing must begin no earlier than 12:01 a.m. (your time zone), on the Saturday, and must stop by 11:59 p.m. (your time zone) on the Sunday. 2. This is a 3,000 word challenge. There are no restrictions on what you can write as long as it’s 3k words or more.Acceptable Projects:Novels (brand new or continuing work)Short StoresArticlesEssaysGenres: ALL Genres (including nonfiction, Fan fiction)3.
