hi there! I’m Rebecca, creator of Write 100. for as long as I can remember I’ve loved to write and tell stories. as life got busier I struggled to find the time I needed to hone my craft and pursue my dream. there was always something else to do, and it wasn’t uncommon for me to even fall asleep while trying to get some words on the page.
the idea for Write 100 came from an extra credit assignment in my college creative writing class. the challenge was to spend at least 15 minutes writing for 75 days straight. when the 75 days were over, I kept going. I made it over 100 days before I was done. all while juggling my heaviest load of college classes yet. I’d never produced so much in so little time. the more often I wrote, the more momentum I gained.
the challenge was just the combination of consistency and accountability I needed to take my writing life to the next level. that’s why I’ve launched Write 100. it’s a simple way for writers of all kinds to come together and get rid of the excuses and distractions. write more. write better. Write 100.
meet the team.
our team of contributors are writers like you. Write 100 wouldn’t be possible without them. get to know them, explore their work, and connect.

Rebecca Neathery finds writing the bio and finding an appropriate picture much harder than writing the blog entry. She’s a pretty ordinary person with relatively few accomplishments; however, she is the wife of a college football coach and the mom of three college students, and she’s more than pretty proud of all of them. She has lived in many states and traveled to many countries, but her favorite place is anywhere her family is all together. You may find more of her writing at www.coffeesconesandkindredspirits.blogspot.com.
Rebecca Fox knew she would be a writer when, in 3rd grade, the teacher told the class to write a 1 page story, but she wrote 3 pages instead. Since that day her stories have gotten longer and longer. When not dreaming up new stories or encouraging other writers to do the same, she’s likely found obnoxiously cheering on her favorite football teams. Rebecca received her BA from Wheaton College where she studied English and Biblical Studies. She lives and works in central Iowa.
