In Which We Host A Blogfest

Hi All! Friday Fun Words will be back next week due to this important message:

It's blogfest time!

How many of you participated in National Novel Writing Month this year? Raise your hands. Okay, good. Well this is for you whether you won or not.

The awesome and spectacular Hannah approached Summer and I, so we are joining forces to bring you the "Show Me Yours" Blogfest!




The point of this blogfest is to share an excerpt of your NaNoWriMo novel. It can be any scene but try to keep it at 500 words so we can all get around to as many blogs as possible.

Who's with us?!

The date as you may have noticed is January 3rd, 2011. This will give you time to choose a scene and edit it, revise it, change it...whatever. Feel free to give us a little background about your story or at the very least a title and a genre. That always helps, right?

So if you participated in NaNoWriMo 2010, now's the time to show your skills or your bad writing! Excitement!

Hannah, Summer and I will be using the same widget, so if you sign up on any of our blogs, your name will show on all. My Mister Linky Widget is over there beneath my followers --------->

Feel free to steal this badge to advertise but please link it back to here or to one of the other ladies blogfest post so peeps know the rules

I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Hey, this post looks familiar ;) I just came here from Hannah's place, hehe.

Hannah Kincade said...

LOL! LET'S DO IT!!!

Teebore said...

Hmm...mayhap. My NaNo book and I aren't on the best of terms right now, what with it sucking and all, but we shall see.

Stephen Tremp said...

For Nano I already had a MS so I used the time to research, add dialogue, and generally fill it out. My word count wasn't that big, but the MS looks a lot better now.

aspiring_x said...

i said no-no to nano, so i can't participate.
BUT!
i do LOVE the graphic for this blogfest!

Holly Ruggiero said...

What a great idea.

untitlement said...

Can't wait to read the excerpts and play along.

Elana Johnson said...

Awesome! I like this idea... I might just have to set aside my anit-blogfest-ness for it...

Kittie Howard said...

Didn't do NaNo but would like to see excerpts from others. Great idea! Have a lovely weekend!

Falen (Sarah Ahiers) said...

Tara - we tried hard to be on the ball

Hannah - BRING IT ON!

Teebore - DO IT! I'm sure the writing is fine, and i still think your idea sounds awesome. jump in!

Aspiring - aww, too bad. But you have your own blogfest coming up!

Untitlement - yeah me too!

Elana - ONE OF US! I would totes like to get a peek at Elana's mystery NaNo project

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I just might have to do this one!

Summer Ross said...

OO nice idea. I'll post this on my side bar and participate.

Chris Phillips said...

LOVE the badge.

Hart Johnson said...

HA! Signed up! (and am totally shocked I didn't find it here first. I found it at Hannah's earlier, but I'm more regular here), but this is a fun poke to clean up that WriMo! (or a little of it, anyway)

Shannon said...

aww, awesome idea. Wish I had the time for NaNo.

Dangerous With a Pen said...

Ha! How fun! I didn't do NaNo but what an adorable graphic and fun idea for a blogfest. :)

Jamie Gibbs (Mithril Wisdom) said...

This is a great idea! I'll take a look see at what I managed over NaNo and tweak it a little :)

L'Aussie said...

I need to be treated for my addiction to blogfests. This sounds like a good way to focus back on our 50,000 wacky words and maybe get editing/finishing the project. Count me in!

Suzi McGowen said...

I signed up. I like that little WIP, even if I didn't come close to winning at NaNo this year :)

nindogs said...

I signed up. Why the hell not? It will kill me to find an excerpt though.

Lisa Potts said...

This is a great idea! Count me in.

Falen (Sarah Ahiers) said...

Yay for blogfest participants!

Lisa-Marie Jordan said...

this sounds fun! I didn't win NaNo this year, but hopefully this will inspire me to pick the novel back up again!

Teebore said...

I have sufficiently bowed to the crushing pressure of my peers.

Tony Benson said...

Cool idea! I've never done a blogfest before, so I'll give this a try.

Margo Benson said...

Greetings from a little corner of England! This sounds like fun...I've signed up.

Rebecca T. said...

Ooh! I'm glad I found this in enough time to actually join in! Now to find a scene that won't give too much away, but that isn't filled with too much ... poo. (in a figurative, not a literal sense) Never mind. Leaving now. to sign up.

ahem.
