WRITE FOR THE LOVE OF IT
Tale-a-thlon was an event which was conceived immediately on Penmancy’s inception in September 2018. After deliberations and revisions, the event came into being in its current form in 2021, when we were about to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. The incubation of the event was an interesting phase which helped us understand the writing patterns, writing styles, and writing routines of various writers.
“The key to pursuing excellence is to embrace an organic, long-term learning process, and not to live in a shell of static, safe mediocrity. Usually, growth comes at the expense of previous comfort or safety.”
― Josh Waitzkin
We’re excited to bring to you a challenge that is unprecedented and is equivalent to the famed triathlon. The only difference being that of the three challenges, the writers have a choice to pick one, two, or all three challenges as per convenience. The only yardstick is to complete the challenge (whatever it may be, of the three) within a time frame of a month.
True to the philosophy of Penmancy, the Tale-a-thlon dares the contestant to compete with themselves, for it is rightly said that the best competition in life is with oneself and rewards us with lasting personal growth. So take the Tale-a-thlon challenge today and let your creativity take wings and flourish!
