Now that February's Writer Recharge is finished, I'm off to another writing accountability blog challenge hosted by the YA Buccanneers (don't you love the name?). Click here to sign up.
Here are some basics:
WHAT IS THE SPRING WRITING BOOTCAMP?
For the next three months, we're challenging you to set writing goals and stick to them. To help you out, we're putting together accountability teams, inspiring and informative blog posts on writing and revising, and PRIZES to help keep you motivated!
WHEN IS IT?
The Spring Writing Bootcamp starts today, March 3rd, 2014 and will run until May 31st, 2014.
OKAY, IT SOUNDS AMAZING. HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Start by answering the questions at the post, and share your goals for the bootcamp on your blog. We'll have weekly check-ins on Mondays, where you can link to your blog post with your goal status.
On Twitter, use #YABbootcamp to connect with other participants, find writing buddies (and start Word Sprints!), or to share your Spring Writing Bootcamp-related blog posts.
- Will you be participating in our Spring Writing Bootcamp?
- If yes, what will you be working on: drafting, revisions, or both? Feel free to share a little about your project, too. :)
- If you're joining us, would you like to join an accountability team?
We'll announce the first teams on Friday, March 7th, so comment by Thursday, March 6th if you'd like to be assigned to a team.
My goals for Spring Bootcamp, which covers March, April, and May:
- Complete revision of AMELIA (YA contemporary), including a synopsis to send to my agent. (These are agent revisions I am working on.)
- Complete 2nd draft of SUNSET SUMMER (YA contemporary written during NaNoWriMo 2013).
- Write synopsis and send synopsis to agent for review.
- Send SUNSET SUMMER to readers.
- Potentially work on an outline and character development for a new project.
