Week Four Finished - Only Three Days Left! #ChaBooCha


We've made it through four whole weeks of the Chapter Book Challenge now. Well done if you've continued to participate this far. 

I thought it might be helpful to share some links to previous ChaBooCha posts having to do with writing endings, editing, marketing, critique groups, creating covers, querying, and crowdfunding, as these are things that may come up as you get to the end of your story.

Happily-Ever-Afters: What Makes a Satisfying Chapter Book Ending by Lee Wardlaw


The Light at the End by Joy Corcoran





Critique Groups by Aleesah Darlison






I hope that you have found that the challenge has helped you progress with your story. With just a few days left of the challenge, make sure you keep writing!

Let us know in the comments how you have been doing.

  2. Thank you so much! Without this challenge, I may not have stared this book at all. Now, I am on the final chapter. It's been an inspiring month!

  5. Well, I finished one new draft. Sent off my ChaBooCha book from last year for a professional critique. Overall, I did ok. Could have used this month to more benefit. Hope to plan better next year.

  6. Thank you for the inspiration and for the great posts. My manuscript is moving along and will be ready for revision soon. Without the challenge, it would probably still be lingering in my mind.

  9. Thank you for all of these posts, there is so much value here! I finished my rough draft this month. I am taking 2 weeks to not look at it and then start revising and editing with a fresh set of eyes. I will definitely be returning to these posts for inspiration.
