Weekly Writing Challenges
Welcome to the YeahWrite archives. Below, you’ll find all of our daily posts. We kick off our week on Sundays with the (what else) weekly kickoff post. Our nonfiction grid opens with our Monday post, then the fiction and poetry grid opens on Tuesdays. The popular vote opens Wednesday evening and closes the same time on Thursday, and we announce our popular vote winners and editorial staff picks on Fridays. Fridays also see our weekend writing showcase open in the evenings.
Take a minute to browse or search our archives to see a typical week at YeahWrite. We also feature monthly instructional or challenge posts, which you’ll find collected here as well as in our writing help archive!
Changing Times It's been a tumultuous week. My eldest child turned 18 years old. In the grand scheme of things, it's not a big change, but technically, legally, he's now an adult. It is weird for me, as his mother, to come to grips with the change. I've spent all his...read more
So, In Conclusion Endings. Y'all. ENDINGS. We've talked about this recently, but since it comes up time and time again, I wanted to bring it up one more time. Indulge me, would ya? It's hard to end an essay, no doubt. If you end with a cliffhanger, you leave...read more
Oof It's been one hell of a week. I can only hope that in the midst of all the terrible things happening in the world, writing and YeahWrite in particular can be of solace to any of you who are suffering. As writers, our words are powerful. They can be the voice of...read more

I'm back, did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? I just spent a week in the mountains with no internet but lots of storytelling (and bears there were bears real live bears they were right next to us). My dad and I still go backpacking together...read more
Heading towards totality I'm flying to Oregon this weekend to visit my parents and see a total eclipse of the sun for the first time. My nerd genes are quivering with excitement. What are you excited about? Reading and voting on the grids? Good! Popular voting for the...read more
If money grew on trees, would it fall into my hands in the autumn? Money doesn't, tragically (or actually when you consider how inflation works, that's probably a good idea), grow on trees. But it does grow with each additional registration in the YeahWrite Super...read more
Under Pressure I don't know about you, but I put a lot of pressure on myself to produce exquisite work. If what I create is less than stellar, I mentally flog myself. This is not necessarily a useful mental habit, but hey, I'm working on lightening up on myself. In...read more
The Road to Hell You know how Stephen King famously said that he believes the road to hell is paved with adverbs? Well I think it's paved with adjectives. (Actually, I think it's probably just black top, but that's neither here nor there.) His point about adverbs is...read more
Sharing Is Caring I feel like I've used that heading title before but I can't remember. Oh well. Regardless, the sentiment remains. The Weekly Writing Challenges rely on you, our audience and participants, to spread the word. When you tweet, share links on Facebook,...read more
