A Word About Blogfests...
First of all, it gets the creative juices flowing. Meeting someone else's criteria and word count are part and parcel with a writing career so getting used to the idea is helpful. I've meet a lot of writers I would not have otherwise come in contact with through blogfests....some as far as Greece, some as near as the next city...all of them push me to be a better writer.
It's fun. I've been told that great writers read voraciously, both inside and outside of their genre. The blogfests I've entered have hosted YA, horror, science fiction, and a host of subgenres I'm just learning about. Reading the work of other authors and getting feedback on my own is helpful and encouraging.
So take a peek at some of the Blogfests listed in the sidebar to your right. --->
I don't enter all of them, just the ones that are a fit for what I'm doing at the moment. You might make some interesting network buddies, or maybe even learn a thing or two.
I hope to see you in the ether...can't wait to read what you've got. Until next time...Go write!
