Who came up with this nonsense?
Hi. I did.
I'm Robin Rauzi and I'm a freelance editor in Los Angeles. A few years ago I decided that being an editor was really crimping my writing style because I just spent all my time rewriting myself. To get over it, I decided to write a blog post every day during Lent and post it to Facebook so that my friends and family could hold me accountable to this practice.
The experience was transformative. I learned a lot about writing, but also a lot about myself just by doing the writing.
In June 2017 I began building 40 Days & 40 Writes into a program for other people. It started with five friends who volunteered via Facebook, and has grown from there. I'm always looking to new ways and opportunities to share the 40 Days concept, so get in touch if you have an idea.
