Welcome to week eighty-eight of What I’m Writing! Wow, last week we had a bumper crop of posts – nineteen – I only finished commenting on them earlier today! It was great to catch up with so many of you after the summer break and I was pleased to see creativity still flowing, with Cara, Rachael and Jude all posting wonderful poetry. Meanwhile Nicola shared some very exciting publishing news and Alice did what I’d failed to do and wrote about our fab #WhatImWriting meet-up over the summer – we’re hoping to arrange another soon. Have I ever told you I love my little linky? It’s connected me with such wonderful writers! For more fabulous posts do pop over and have a read of last week’s link up.
If you’re new here (welcome!) you might be wondering what #WhatImWriting is all about. You can find all the details here but the short(er) version is I’m a writer who loves blogging about my writing process and reading about those of others. This linky is for all you fellow writers, poets, bloggers etc. out there to share posts about what you’re writing (and all your hopes and fears, triumphs and tears) with a group of people who understand what you’re going through.
I’ve also set up a private group on Facebook that all linkers are welcome to join. It’s somewhere we can share work and have a chat about all things writerly (and whatever else we fancy really). It’s a ‘secret group’ which means you’ll need an invitation to join so once you’ve linked up just let me know if you want me to send an invite.
If you’d like to join in you’re very welcome! There are just a few suggestions for taking part:
- Link up any post (old or new) that is to do with writing/blogging etc.
- Please either use my badge on the post (copy and paste the HTML code below) or link to my blog. I will share your post on Twitter in return.
- Read and comment on as many other posts in the linky as you can. What I’m Writing has developed a lovely, supportive community and we’d love you to join in
- If you’d like to tweet your post feel free to use the hashtag #WhatImWriting. If you tweet me a link to your post @writingbubble then I will RT.
