Our October Boo-Fest is coming up and you're all invited to join in the fun! Because part of the vision for The Write Cause is to create a supportive community, what better way to get started than to give everyone an opportunity to introduce themselves? And even better, these introductions will also serve as encouragement for your fellow writers, which is what The Write Cause is all about.
During the last week of October (26-31st), we'll send out a post with community participants who answered the three questions below (you can also include a link to website, book, services, etc., in your response if applicable). The responses to these questions can be in a short video, in written text or a combination of both, whichever is easier or preferred.
Since this is our October Boo-Fest, Halloween costumes are welcome! If you love dressing up for Halloween, then don your costume before doing your intro video (or snapping a selfie). We'd love to see it! This is not required, of corse, as your everyday face will be just fine, too!
To make this fun, we're asking you to answer three questions related to Boo, Boo-Hoo and Boo-Boo's of writing. Questions can be answered in any way, based on your own writing experience (i.e., there are no right/wrong or expected answers). Be sure to introduce yourself first and tell us where you're from and include a link if you want other community members to get to know you more!
Part of being healthy as a human being (and a writer) is learning how to look back on what you've learned, even the painful lessons, and pull the good out of it. Even more healing is to share your hard-won knowledge with others so that they might avoid the same painful lesson.
You can submit your answers, video and/or pic to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just note that email can have file size limitations for pics and video (see below for other options).
Please submit by October 23rd so we can include you on the Boo-Fest Parade from October 26 - 31st.
If it is easier for you, you can respond to the questions via survey: October Boo-Fest Survey.
Choose one of the formats below to submit your answers.
Since sending video may exceed gmail file limitations, you can send:
If you use gmail, then sending with Google Drive link is probably the easiest.
Please keep your submission to 500 words or less. If you have a lot more you want to say on the topic (or other writing topics), consider submitting a guest post to The Write Cause. Guest posts are welcome! Just bear in mind that the focus of our blog is on encouraging writers or helping writers learn something new.
For videos, please keep to 2-3 minutes or less (and under 2 GB).
Anyone can submit, so if you have a writer friend who would enjoy participating, feel free! They'll just need to REGISTER on our site to receive the October Boo-Fest emails.
Part of our vision for The Write Cause is to create a community of writers where folks can meet new writer friends and generally be supportive of each other. I'm working on a community platform and hope to have it up by the end of October.
I look forward to hearing from you, reading your submissions and learning more about you!
