Ready, Set . . . Write Your A** Off! June 11, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Word Play, Writing & Writers.

Sharpen your pencils and your wit and join the New York Writers Coalition on Saturday, June 12th, for “Write Your A** Off “Day!

Here’s your chance to show the world that you have what it takes to spit 3,000 words out on paper (or screen) in the course of 24 short hours!

The New York Writers Coalition is offering an added incentive:

Everyone who completes the challenge and writes 3,000 words on June 12th will have the chance to enter a drawing to win a free private phone consultation about your writing project with Jennifer Belle!


Wait . . . who’s Jennifer Belle? 

Glad you asked! 

According to the bio posted on the New York Writers Coalition website:

Jennifer Belle is the best-selling author of four novels, The Seven Year Bitch,  published May, 2010, Little Stalker, High Maintenance, and Going Down.  

Her critically acclaimed novels have been translated into many languages and optioned for film and television by Madonna, Das Films, HBO and Fox.  In 1996 she was named Best Debut Novelist of the year by Entertainment Weekly. 

She lives in New York City where she teaches writing workshops and is proud to be on the advisory board of NY Writers Coalition.

So, there you go . . .

Now, stop asking questions and get ready to Write Your A** Off!   

This P.S.A. brought to you courtesy of My Life As A Writer And Artist: NaNoWriMo ~ Write Your A** Off!  . . . Thanks, Carolyn!

Good Luck!

If we don’t stop to eat . . . we’ll actually lose weight! : )

My shoulder is hurting me today ~ probably from spending too much time at the computer this week.

So, I’m going to step away from the keyboard for a bit.

In other words, no 3,000 word challenge for me today. : (

Sounds interesting, I did NanoWrimo last year so this would be good, but I am out most of tomorrow with a friend so I can’t take part sniff 😦

I did NaNoWriMo last November too . . . but I fell just shy of the 50,000 word goal.

I finished about 48K words on a novel called The Journey. It still needs to be completed.

One day . . .

Limited to American writers?

nrhatch - June 13, 2010

I don’t think so.

The main NaNoWriMo is in November ~ write a 50,000 word novelette in a month. Even though it’s prefaced with National ~ National Novel Writing Month ~ I think it’s open to all.

Same with this event . . . I think it was open to everyone with internet access. So the penguins in Antartica are left out in the cold, but everyone else can play. ; )

Google NaNoWriMo and you should find the main site. If not, Rik has participated about 8 times and can clue you in further.
