What is The Prep?
The Prep is a month-long, community-oriented challenge that takes place every October, designed to help you plan a novel prior to writing it. You don't even have to have a novel idea to participate! Your first assignment, on Oct. 1st, is to come up with an idea, and we provide you with brainstorming tools, plot generators, and a whole community of other novelists to help you along. The month-long Prep activity and daily assignments can be found here: "October Novel Prep Challenge"
What are the Prep Contest Rounds?
The Prep Calendar of daily assignments includes four optionally competitive assignments judged and ranked by a team of judges for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. Contest Rounds typically fall on the Saturdays in October. If you choose to compete in one or more Prep Contest Rounds, use this form to post your submission(s).
For full Prep rules refer to "October Novel Prep Challenge" .
