Welcome to Thin Air Magazine's 2011 Writers' Challenge!

You know you do it.  One day, you think to yourself, I really should write more, but then you're not in the mood, or you have to work late or watch another episode of that medical drama or space show, or feeding the goldfish or tarantula takes up your entire evening.  As you rush from one vitally important task to the next, somehow the time gets away, and it ends up that you didn't end up writing more.  You've been there, and you know how frustrating it can be.

We at Thin Air magazine know, too, so why not join in kicking excuses in the teeth and writing thirty pieces in thirty days.  It's not as hard as it sounds, and in the end you'll feel better because you'll have spent some time doing what you love and probably have something good to show for it.  And we'd love to see what you write.  Share your work with us, and since we'll be choosing a piece per day to feature on our blog, one of your pieces might be recognized as one of the best pieces ever written during April 2011.

So while you're here, check out the Challenge Guidelines page to the left, and if you want to know more about sharing your work with us and/or having us post it as part of the 2011 Writers' Challenge, check out the Nuts and Bolts page (also to the left).  If you decide to take the challenge, tell us about it on the Pledge Page.  And of course, if you have any questions or suggestions for the challenge, please comment on this thread and let us know.
