” I wanted to join a community of writers that is all year round, unlike NaNoWriMo, and whilst I am getting involved with the Twitter writer community, the keep going challenges added more for me to follow. The challenges are also what I need at the moment. A push to get words down, especially as life is going to get very busy in the next few months. [The challenges] kept me motivated and made me write even a few words to keep pushing on. Not sure that would have happened otherwise. It was also nice to feel I was apart of a group of writers who were cheering each other on. ” – Samantha, a member of Writers’ Club.
