Okay, I’ve joined or decided to join a few things recently, so I thought I’d just take a moment to share them with all of you.
First – though I’ve considered myself a writing Ninja for many a month, ever since I first heard about NiNoWriMo, I have finally taken the plunge, joined the Writer’s Dojo, and done the placement workout to find my ninja rank. As you can see, I’ve got the blue belt, with one red stripe, and I think I’ll be there for a while, because to get to green belt I need to go through the blue belt with two red stripes, and that one is unexpectedly hardcore! (Pitch to an agent or editor in person, or get an agent contract.)
But I suggest that you check out the ninja dojo if you haven’t heard of it, there’s lots of great authors, and they’re holding an online writer’s conference on Saturday the 4th!
Second bit of news is that I signed up for the A to Z challenge this April. It was a lot of fun doing A-Z in 2011, and I got to meet a lot of fun bloggers. This year, I’m going to make my theme… Script Frenzy and script writing, to raise awareness for the Script Frenzy event, and avoid having to split my focus so much between A-Z and the Frenzy.
I’ve also signed up for the Hook, Line, and Sinker blogfest, which looks like a lot of fun. If I don’t post an entry for that on February 13th, remind me, okay? I have this horrible habit of forgetting blogfests that I’ve committed too. Hopefully, I’ll have the first 1000 words or so of ‘The Scroll’ ready to tease by then.
And in just a few days, signups will open for the Fourth Platform-building Campaign! I’m looking forward to that, and hope to bring back the ‘Campaigner Spotlight’ interview series!
So much fun stuff happening, even in dreary February, huh?
