Welcome to week sixty-one of What I’m Writing! Thanks so much to everyone who linked up last week – we had another fab selection of posts including some poetry and flashfiction and lots of interesting reflections on the creative process.
I particularly liked Dana’s post describing a winter walk which helped her to write a story that had been simmering for years, and Tara’s reminder that we shouldn’t worry too much about so-called ‘blogging rules’, and just write – I agree! Meanwhile Julie Jo’s post made me laugh out loud and had a BRILLIANT word for 2016 that I think sums up my life. And I couldn’t possibly not mention this post from Emily Organ – it’s jam-packed with useful tips for any aspiring novelists.
Right then, 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.
