The Chapter Book Challenge, otherwise known as ChaBooCha, was created by Rebecca Fyfe and first ran in 2012. It runs every year in the month of March. The challenge is to write one completed first draft of an early reader, chapter book, middle grade book or YA novel in the month of March, starting on the 1st of March and finishing on the 31st of March.
During the month of March, there are helpful blog posts from published authors, agents and publishers to help members hone their craft, and there are prizes available throughout the challenge.
ChaBooCha has a very relaxed atmosphere where members help each other to achieve writing goals. You can sign up on the website, and you can also join the Facebook page for updates and information. There is a Twitter page and members interact with one another throughout the year in the Facebook group.
It is completely free to join the Chapter Book Challenge.
