How to take the Daily UX Writing Challenge

And why it's probably a good idea.

1. Read the challenge

1 of 14 short exercises will be delivered to your inbox every day—weekdays only, we're not monsters—for two weeks. Including: a scenario, a challenge and how many words you have to work with—the same ones big companies use to test your skills during interviews.

Google, Paypal, Spotify, Amazon, Dropbox—they're all hiring UX Writers right now. It's a hot job. Is it a fad? Probably not, and the hiring process starts with the dreaded content challenge; random scenarios designed to test your skills in writing for the end-user. Not to fear, they're a piece of cake if you've prepared. If you haven't prepared you're totally fucked. But that's why we're here.

2. Write it in under 10 minutes

Write and edit your solution as fast as you can. Try to do it in ten minutes. Most UX writing and content challenges are timed exercises. If you can do it even faster, that's even better.

Ask anyone who writes for a living; they'll tell you that remembering the rules so you don’t sound like a hack is an almost impossible struggle—and being able to write fast and consistent? That's even more impossible-er. Also, the hiring manager will want to know if you can do good work fast and under the pressure of a deadline; so you'd better start timing yourself now.

3. Share it on Twitter

Feedback is everything. Using the hashtag #dailyuxwriter or #dailyuxwriting, post your copy on Twitter and tag @dailyuxwriting to get feedback and to share your genius with the rest of the Internet.

Are you a UX designer? Developer? Product manager? A copywriter who wants to brush up on your UX skills? Post your copy on Twitter and the Daily UX Writing community will give you praise, notes and suggestions. It's an active community. Over 300 entries and it's little over a month old. It's also the most favorable course of interactions we've EVER seen on Twitter... so there's that.
