Ace Your 10K Day!

ONLINE COURSE – Tuition: $55 (self-paced) or $195 (with coaching & mentoring from Milli)

The 10K Day – a twice-monthly event

10K Day for Writers is a live online event held twice each month. Participants challenge themselves to write 10,000 words in a day, using the check-in page on the blog to make regular updates of their progress.

The event has endeared itself to 10K Day regulars, who love the camaraderie and win-win atmosphere. It’s also looked forward to as a way to ensure a greater writing output at least once or twice a month.

The Benefits of Writing 10,000 Words in a Day

The benefits of learning to write 10,000 words in a single day are not just about increased productivity. (That alone can be enormous: think of how much sooner you can reach some of your major creative goals by knowing how to switch on your highest productivity.) It’s also about liberating yourself from your own creative limitations and experiencing the freedom of writing without restraint. This cannot be adequately described; it’s something that has to be experienced and felt. And it’s something that can spill over into the rest of your writing life in wondrous ways.

So, Why the Need for an Online Course?

Despite everybody being happy that they get something written, many participants are stymied on the goal of writing 10,000 words in a day. This happens for various reasons, most of which have been directly observed by Milli over the course of the time she’s been running the event (since 2009).

The 10K Day tips and guidelines posted on the blog should, in theory, help participants bust the 10,000 word mark more often. But it can take more than that. A deliberate effort to acquire successful habits and a true 10K Day mentality can make all the difference.

That’s where the online course comes in. Part course, part mentoring experience, Milli leads students through reading material and assignments designed to prep writers for success on the day. Students are required to develop written plans and goals, and to understand the pitfalls lying in wait—and how to avoid them.

For those who choose the mentoring option, Milli will work directly with you on your biggest or most common obstacles. She will also be available and ready during your 10K Day to help you through any blocks, large or small. The mentored option includes written feedback on your assignments, a personal coaching session and Milli’s total availability and support during your chosen 10K Day.

Milli’s guidance, like Draino, will continue to unclog the clogs and we know she is there to help us.

Milli’s approach to the prep is deceptively doable and enjoyable, not at all like a drill sergeant exhorting you to march faster. The assignments will also help you get down to the source of any blocks or hidden fears that have been stonewalling your attempts to become a more productive writer. The supportive but “challenge your limitations” curriculum will improve your overall approach and help you form lifelong good habits for your writing.

Marilyn Agee, 10K Day regular


After taking Milli’s Ace Your 10K Day! course I feel I’m so much better equipped to take part in this monthly event. I highly recommend it! Even if you don’t care about writing 10,000 words in one day, it’s a course that will spur your imagination. It was surprisingly a lot more fun than I was expecting. I thought it would be more like “work.”
