ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Become a part of the third Writers' Platform Building Campaign





Once again, Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes... is hosting this event, meant to help boost your online platform, connecting you with other writers throughout the blogosphere. I've joined each year and found it invaluable in making new blogging friends. And the challenges are just plain fun! Find out more about how it all works HERE.
This Campaign is running from August 22-October 31, and the List of Campaigners closes August 31, so there's still time to sign up. I've just joined several groups according to the genres I write in. It will be great to share with fellow writers in similar genres. There's even groups according to your country of origin. I notice the poets are light on. C'mon. Way to go!

  • Are you going to join in for the Third Writers' Platform-Building Crusade? If you have any questions, ask in the comments or pop over to Rach Writes.

  11. I read Rach's posts but I'm not sure I understand. It sounds as if those in specific groups just visit each other.
    ???

    Are there blog fests planned or will you be posting your regular posts?

    Love the badge. Drew me in right away.

  12. Hi Maria. The idea for the sign in groups is a new one. You find the group/s according to your genre/s. It is a fabulous way of networking with those in your genre. There will be challenges which will be judged and there are prizes, quite good ones, but the best thing is meeting so many new people and finding mutual encouragement.

  13. Hi Denise,

    You're definitely an old and familiar friend - and I apologise for being absent from the blogosphere so much in the last few months. Spent a long time in hospital followed by new baby...so it's taking all my time to keep my head above water!
