The Oxford English Dictionary defines progress as
1. forward or onward movement towards a destination. (noun)
2. development towards an improved or more advanced condition. (noun & verb)
3. to move forward or onward in space or time. (verb)
As I have always believed, as long as you've even just thought more about the book you are writing, then you've made progress. Plotting your book out is also progress. There are lots of things you can do towards writing your book that constitute progress made.
Winning this challenge by writing your desired word count and completely the manuscript's first draft of your novel is the goal of this challenge, but it shouldn't be the only thing you take away from this writing challenge. Making friends and connections with other writers, sharing ideas and getting feedback, learning more about the writing and publishing process, and finding inspiration and motivation for writing your novel are just some of the things I hope you can take away with you from this challenge.
We have made it to the last day of the Chapter Book Challenge. I want to thank everyone who has participated in this challenge (whether or not you completed your manuscript during ChaBooCha). I really appreciate your participation in this yearly writing challenge and hope to see you all again in March 2022.
