Write a book in a day? Yes, we can!

In line with one of our objectives to give back to the community, my writers group, Prana Writers, have entered a team for the ‘Write a book in a day” challenge.

In a nutshell, it’s a writing marathon to produce a children’s book in 12 hours. Our team will plan, write, illustrate, print and bind a 2000-8000 word book.

At 8am on 14 August, our team will be emailed a random setting, two human characters, a non-human character, an issue and five random words. Our story must be written around these and be delivered or emailed by 8pm the same day.

The aim is to raise funds for Childrens’ Hospitals in each Australian State. We will be supporting the Queensland Royal Childrens’ Hospital.

A copy of each finished book is donated to the hospital library, and the aim is to raise funds for our hospital.

If anyone would like to sponsor this worthy cause, you may do so by credit card – and it’s tax deductible!

Just visit http://writeabookinaday.com/welcome/donationhospital.html and  select our hospital and our group (Prana Writers).

We are currently the only group registered in Queensland, so please support this worthy cause.

Many thanks for your support, I’ll be sure to let you know how we go.

In the meantime, happy writing, happy reading and, of course, happy days 🙂
