After a lot of thinking I have decided to open the doors of findingmycreature to welcome guest posts in the month of November. Why November? Because of NaNoWriMo of course.
My memories of NanoWriMo take me back to an exhilarating high, summer air and heatwaves – got to love the Southern Hemisphere!
I remember between crazed moments of writing I would devour as many blogs and writing related material as possible. That’s how I stumbled across Holly Lisle’s writing courses and I have been serious about writing ever since.
So it got me thinking – wouldn’t it be wonderful to have other writer creatures involved on this blog during November to help inspire, cheer and get those creative juices stirring?
For those of you who are interested in contributing there are two categories you can choose to be involved in.
If you are participating in NaNoWriMo this year and interested in being featured as a NaNoCreature you can register your interest to findingmycreature [at] gmail [dot] com
Make sure to include a link to your blog and I will get back to you.
^Ideally you will be participating in NaNoWriMo this November, it doesn’t really make any sense profiling you and prodding you with questions otherwise. Or maybe it’s just me.
^You would be required to submit a photograph of yourself, not an avatar, although they are cute 🙂
Alternatively you can submit a writing related post in the spirit of NaNoWriMo and do a NanoCreature Guest Post. I would like those featured to draw from topics ranging from anything as long as you can relate it back to writing e.g. generating ideas, structure, benefits of meditation , overcoming roadblocks etc. Email me with a topic proposal to findingmycreature [at] gmail [dot] com
Word length – not a novel.
Also, please provide a couple of images to complement the post linking back to the source.
^I will consider non-NaNo participants for this option
One of the main requirements I am looking for in a featured guest is that they must have an active blog and a genuine passion for the art and craziness that is writing a novel. It would be nice to be considered in return if you were hoping to host guests on your own blog but not a requirement or the reason I’m am opening my blog up to other creatures. I genuinely want to make this place an exciting and inspiring place to visit during November!
November is an amazing month where creative juices flow and writers all around the world get into touch with that inner creature within. How exciting is that?
I would love to hear from you if you are interested in being a part of the NaNoCreature blog segments.
Love and light,
