The Rough Draft Rally: Write More Words and Win!

Complete your rough draft by April 30, 2022! The more words you write, the more chances you have to win great prizes!

Self Publishing School is on a mission to help you complete your rough draft.

Here’s how the April Rough Draft Rally works:

  • The Rough Draft Rally runs from April 1 - April 30
  • Submit your Daily Word Count (not the total word count of your book) in the Word Count Tracker
  • Fill out this form when you've completed your rough draft.

Rough Draft Rally Goal

Our goal is to see SPS authors complete 70 Rough Drafts by April 30th.
Authors can use the Word Count Tracker to measure their progress through the month of April.

Write More & Win Prizes

We're excited to offer the following prizes to participants of the Rally. The more entries in the Word Count Tracker, the more chances you'll have to win the prizes below! We're giving away:

  • 5 SPS Yeti Mugs
  • 5 Author Success Journals
  • 5 $100 Amazon Gift Cards 

      **If 70 Rough Drafts are written in April, it will unlock special bonus prizes: 3 authors who complete their draft in April will win a VIP ticket to Author Advantage Live!**

    Join the Writing Room:

    Each week, you can join a virtual workspace to make progress on your rough draft in the company of other SPS authors.

    Join "The Writing Room" Group Coaching Call every Tuesday and Thursday. Details are in the Group Coaching Call Calendar

    Students who join the Writing Room at least four times in April will be eligible to win $100 towards Book Promo sites! 

    Using the Word Count Tracker: 

    You can find the Word Count Tracker by clicking here or by logging into your course and clicking on Tools, then Word Count Progress Tracker.

    Using the calendar, select the date. Next, let us know how many words you wrote on that day. Then, hit submit! 

    You'll receive different badges for the amount of progress you've made and you may even show up in one of the "Total Words Written" or "Consecutive Streak of Days Writing" leaderboards!
