Chrissie and I have decided to take the summer off our linky in order to spend time with our families so this will be the last #WhatImWriting until September. I know I’ll miss it – and all of you – but I’m hoping the break will do me good and that, apart from spending time with my boys, I’ll have time to work on a few creative writing projects too. We’ll be back on Tuesday 8th September!
If you’re new here you might be wondering what #WhatImWriting is all about. You can find all the details here but the short version is my co-host Chrissie and I are both writers who love blogging about our writing processes and reading about those of others. Our 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. April’s #WhatImWriting roundup post (Hmm, I should probably crack on with June’s… ) can give you more of an idea of the sort of posts we share, but really anything goes!
We also have 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’ so you’ll need an invitation to join and I send these out to all linkers. That said, we’ve had a few issues with people’s invitations going AWOL recently so if you’d like to join and haven’t received one just leave me a comment – thanks!
We welcome linkers old and new and if you’d like to join in 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 our badge on the post (copy and paste the HTML code below) or link to whichever one of our blogs is hosting that week. We 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 us a link to your post @writingbubble or @writeybeast then we will RT.
Over to you – I look forward to reading your posts!
