Welcome to week twenty-five of ‘What I’m Writing’! A big thank you to everyone who joined in over at Muddled Manuscript last week – I loved reading your posts (as always) and I thought we did well with Chrissie’s ‘What I’m NOT writing’ theme. I wrote about procrastination and I procrastinated so hard I wrote two posts for the linkie instead of one! There’s no theme this week but it was quite fun having one wasn’t it? We might do a few more themed weeks in the future!
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.
We take turns to write a monthly round-up of posts. My December Round-up should give you a flavour of what we’ve all been up to recently. I’ll be publishing the February round-up soon, honest!
We’ve also just 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). As it’s a ‘secret group’ it’s hidden until I send an invititation but I have sent them to all linkers – or at least I’ve meant to! We’ve had a few issues with people’s invitations going AWOL though (think they’re being eaten by the big mail cruncher in the sky) 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 (‘rules’ feels too strong a word) 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 @rantybeast then we will RT.
Over to you – please link up below! I look forward to reading your posts (I’ll be linking up too of course)!
