Come Join Me & Others in the BookBlogWrimo!

Happy Monday!

I just came across this link and I am exited to announce that I will be participating in the BookBlogWrimo! Here is what it is all about.


                                                   

                                                       Click image to find out more!

                                                     

Basically, it’s a lax version of NaNoWriMo for book bloggers. I created prompts for each day, discussing different topics around books, blogging, and books + blogging.

There’s no word count requirement, no daily writing requirement, very little requirements in general. Just post the posts on the day they should be posted!

Your answers to the prompts can be as short or long as you like.


I have actually participated back in 2012 for NaNoWrimo and I completed about 55,000 words and being able to participate in this, it just seems like tons of fun! 

*cracks knuckles* Time to turn up the music and get my writing groove on! 

           

                                               Here is the BookBlogWrimo schedule!

  3. I have participated in Nanowrimo twice, back in 2011 and 2012. I will be doing it again this year so it would be a bit much to do this as well. I love the idea though and I can't wait to see your posts! I will be doing some of the prompts later on though ^^
