Chapter Seven?

August 23, 2008

This is what I’m thinking about calling our book-every-quarter project. And I made this graphic to perhaps use for the project:

Chapter Seven

Thoughts? Hate it? Love it? Have any suggestions on a different graphic/name? I’m open. I know, I know, the whole bankruptcy thing, but dang it, I thought it sounded catchy given we’re writing a story in seven days. *grin*

Many, many thanks to the following people for volunteering for the first Chapter Seven (?) project:

1. Jodi Cleghorn
2. Catherine
3. Virginia
4. Elly
5. Rob (Sorry Rob!!!)
6. Me. (Karen)
7. Dale

Update: Thanks Dale! I just need one more volunteer! Who’s with us? All I need you to do is write one chapter on a collaborative story. We’ll post the story in November sometime (to give the weekly writers a chance to work on their NaNoWriMo projects and/or simply take a week off from this blog). Contact me if you’re interested.

For those that volunteered? Group hug .. (((((hug))))) I’ll be emailing you details very soon. I’d like to go ahead and start this project now so we’ll have plenty of time to write our chapters before November.

It looks like we’ll be writing science fiction. *gulp* I have no experience with science fiction, none. However, I’m willing to give it a shot. So, Jodi, Catherine, Virgina, Elly or Rob, if you would like to write chapter one, let me know! (Because I’m not sure I can given the fact I have no idea where to start! Ack!)

Again, last chance to join this pioneer project! I’d like to recruit six writers (plus me) every quarter/season so if you didn’t get a chance to play along this go-around, there will be future projects.

On a different note …

Say it on Saturday is NEXT SATURDAY! If you’re already a Write Anything approved user (which means you should see the Write Anything option in your wordpress.com dashboard account), just sign in on August 30th, write your post and publish it.

If you would like to participate in Say it on Saturday, you’ll need to send me your email address – the one you used to sign up for your wordpress.com account. If you don’t have a wordpress.com account, you can sign up for one here. It’s fast and free. After you sign up for an account, send me your email address so I can add you to the Write Anything user’s list.

On a different note …

Andrea’s post has got me thinking about NaNoWriMo AND the NaNoWriMo workshops I’d like to post here on Write Anything during October. Any suggestions for workshop topics? Weekly writers, if you would like to focus your October posts toward helping writers prepare for NaNoWriMo, please feel free to do so. I would like to take one week in October though and post six (Saturday through Thursday leaving [Fiction] Friday intact) workshop posts.

The topics I’m toying with right now?

1. Plot
2. Outline
3. Characters

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So, to recap:

1. Chapter Seven – like the name? I need one more volunteer.

2. Say it on Saturday is next Saturday, August 30th. Sign up if you
want to post on Write Anything.

3. NaNoWriMo October workshop suggestions.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
