March Madness is Almost Here!
Have you heard about March Madness yet? The amazing #wipmadness peeps--LS Taylor, Denise Jaden, Angelina Hansen, Anne Hale, Deb Marshall, Jaye Robin Brown and Shari Green--are hosting this incredible blogfest where you set writing goals, cheer each other on and even enter for chances to win prizes during the month of March.
Here's the description from Denise Jaden's blog:
If you’ve been looking for a challenge to get your writing in gear, you’ve come to the right place! Through the month of March we will be cheering each other on to meet challenging goals with our writing. Also, this year we've decided to open up the challenge to Readers, Bloggers, and Illustrators. Anyone who wants to challenge themselves regarding books and win prizes for it!
March Madness officially begins tomorrow, and this is how it will work.
1. You set a goal on Denise's blog (anything writing, reading, blogging, or otherwise book related). It can be as small and simple of a goal as turning off your Internet while you write during the month of March. Or it can be as large as writing or revising an entire book.
2. You check in daily through the month of March at designated check-in points. Let us know how you're doing with your goal. Share your victories and struggles. Encourage others. The key is support and camaraderie.
3. We give you prizes just for stopping by and letting us know how you're doing, and for encouraging others!
Sounds easy and fun, right?! The following will be the check-in points for the month of March. We plan to have check-in posts up and running by 9AM PST (noon EST) each day.http://yascribe.blogspot.com/
