A NEW LOOK
It’s here – my new Free Online Writing Events Interface! What was once a hard-to-navigate text list is now a fun, interactive, and colorful calendar!
HOW IT WORKS
See upcoming Twitter and Blog Events listed in order of occurrence, and sort by type of Event (Pitch, Participation, or Contest) or by how often it occurs (Weekly, Periodic). See snapshots of what each Event is on the main page, and click the + button on any Event to see more in-depth information and easy, consolidated instructions on participating.
Too busy to read up on the list every week? Just subscribe to my Writing Events Twitter @writevent for updates on upcoming Events! You can also visit the Events FAQ to learn how to get the most out of the Interface and streamline your Event attendance. Over 30 Events have been added so far!
WHY USE IT?
Ever been overwhelmed by the sheer number of sites you have to visit just to understand what Pitch Wars is? Ever been prepared for Pitch to Publication, only to find out you had the dates wrong because you read off a year-old blog post? Ever found out that PitchMAS had happened… last week? Now you’ll never miss another major Free Online Writing Event, or be forced to slog through directions!
This is just one major overhaul in a sea of them. Drop by my homepage to see a completely new theme, added content, and hopefully faster load times due to WordPress.org web hosting. On my Author Tools page, you’ll find the beginnings of an archive of resources for unpublished authors. Even the blog looks nicer, don’t you think?
I’ll be posting again soon with some more site updates listed, including the #FriDare Twitter Event, which is launching this Friday! Participate from 12pm-9pm EST for your chance to be the first winner ever! No one else will ever have the Week One medal but you!
ZERO DAY BLOGGING
And finally, my last update. You may have read my blog post going over Zero Day Theory, but to summarize: You are much more likely to accomplish your dreams if you take at least one step toward them every day. My greatest dream is to be an author for a living, so from now on, at the bottom of my posts, I’m going to share with my readers how many days it’s been since I last wrote, edited, or workshopped nothing at all. And here you go, my embarrassing start:
MY LAST ZERO DAY: TWO DAYS AGO (I know… I’m ashamed.)
