Get your typing fingers ready, writers. It’s that time of year again. Time for March Madness! No, not the boring basketball kind (okay, I actually do kind of like the basketball kind). The writing motivation kind!
March Madness is an annual challenge started by Denise Jaden for writers, readers, bloggers, or anyone who has a goal they want to achieve. Set a goal and we’ll hold you accountable for it! It’s a great motivational tool because the daily check ins offer a way to keep yourself on track while also helping you win fabulous prizes!
So think about what goal you want to challenge yourself with during the month of March. Off-peak NaNo-style first draft? Tackle that massive revision to-do list? Write and pre-schedule a bunch of blogs? Finally read behemoths like The Goldfinch or Infinite Jest?
I’m plotting (quite literally) a big revision of one of my WIPs that I’d like to complete in March. So big I’m even creating a revision schedule. I’m converting my book from straight-up contemp to magical realism, which basically requires an all new Act 1 (amongst other big changes). So let’s make a deal, blog readers. You hold me accountable and I’ll hold you accountable!
Here is the #MarchMadness blog schedule. Don’t forget to check in on Carol’s blog on Saturday March 1st to announce your goals!
