This morning, the awesome Rebecca Clare Smith tweeted about an interesting promise she made on her blog. The pledge: to write a book in 2011. It’s a great way to support yourself and other writers on the road from aspiring to published author.
I, Melissa R, take The Aspiring Writers Pledge to write a book in 2011 with the intent of publishing. I promise to update my progress weekly, ask when I need support and encourage others to complete the task at hand
I promise to update my blog weekly with how I tackle writing obstacles along the way to completing the WIP. I’ll continue to take on and post smaller projects – contests, challenges, etc. – that keep my creative juices flowing. And every writer needs tips/advice/support along the way. Why not take the pledge, too?
So, who’s with me?
“If you are ready to join in and make a promise (or at least really try), join me – feel free to join in whenever you are ready. I would really love to see would-be authors who have yet to publish but anyone who needs that boost should join us. Please, take this seriously and post the following in your blog, linking back to this post.
