Are Your Hearts Beating Faster? Group Writing Project Reminder

Just a quick reminder about the Confident Writing group writing project.

Taking my inspiration from Valentine’s Day and the timeless theme of love… the challenge is to write about: My Love Affair With Writing

And remember - you don’t need to be a ‘writer’ to join in.

To take part all you need to do is:

  • Write (or otherwise create) a blog post on the subject of My Love Affair With Writing
  • Post your piece by midnight on 28th February (in your time zone)
  • Tag it “my love affair with writing” to help me keep track of the entries
  • Link back to this post (to help me keep track of the entries)
  • Keep it within the boundaries of decency :-)

In return you’ll get:

  • A link to your piece when I publish the round up (in early March)
  • The chance to connect up with other participating bloggers and writers
  • The opportunity to write about writing

There’s also a prize on offer - it’s Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down The Bones, a book to strengthen or inspire a lifelong love affair with writing.

I know that some of you already have the book - which is a sign of a good book if ever there was one, and a suggestion it might just make a fabulous gift for someone. Your chance to spread some l-o-v-e.

Many thanks to Jacob at Group Writing Projects for plugging the project - for those of you who like taking part in these writing projects don’t forget to check out his new site!

The Group Writing Project is a contribution to the theme of writing leaps and bounds, this month’s focus at Confident Writing.

Taking part might… represent a leap for you, rekindle your love of writing and inspire some writing leaps and bounds, or help you learn from what motivates and inspires the words of others. I know it’ll motivate me, and I can’t wait to read what you come up with.
