You do have a story inside you; it lies articulate and waiting to be written — behind your silence and your suffering. ~Anne Rice, Pandora

Sit Down and Write Write-a-Thon: Starting Line
It's on! Are you ready? Have you been working on a novel, short story, etc. that you want to finish? Are you swamped with books to review after all these read-a-thons this summer? Well, this is the week for you! Sign in at the starting line below (please link to where you're updating...blog, Facebook, Goodreads...to a starting line post preferably). Stop in on Twitter (or use Tweetchat, Tweetdeck, Bottlenose) and use the hashtag #sitdownwrite Maybe we'll have some impromptu writing sprints.
My goal is to try to catch up on Camp NaNoWriMo, which would be about 4500 words a day this week and the rest of the month. Can I do it? We shall see! Like I said, even if I can get halfway done with my novel this month, I'll be happy.
What are your goals?
***Write-a-Thon Participant Giveway***
I will be giving away winner's choice of one of these three writing books that I love.
I will be sending the book from Better World Books so it will be a gently used copy. Don't worry...I have had a lot of experience with them and have never been disappointed with the used books I've received. BWB ships free worldwide. So guess what? Giveaway is INTERNATIONAL! All you have to do to be eligible is sign in at the starting line, participate in the write-a-thon, and link up your wrap-up at the end. Easy stuff, right? I will give everyone until 10am CST Tuesday (8/28) to complete their wrap-up posts.
