The WIP IT GOOD Blogfest
Is everybody tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk? (Sorry, a little Monty Python humor there). What I meant to say is how many of you are worn out after participating in the A-Z Challenge? Well, you know me, always looking forward -- and sure enough I have something planned for the end of the month that we need to start spreading the word about now.
Maybe I’m showing my age, but in 1980 there was a one-hit-wonder musical group called Devo that produced a song so catchy that it stuck in my craw for decades. The song was called WHIP IT, and now Elise Fallson and I are putting the song title…or rather a slightly altered version of it…to good use in the form of a blogfest.
Our idea is that on Friday, May 31st, we will provide a forum to allow anyone interested a chance to tell the blogosphere about their most recent [W]ork [I]n [P]rogress. We’ll guide you by providing a few prompts to answer in your own post, and even give you the opportunity to solicit CP’s (partners who exchange material for detail critique – usually chapter by chapter) or Beta Readers (test readers who read entire manuscripts and offer broad opinions) if you’re looking for that.
Here are the prompts we would like you to follow:
Word Count (projected/actual so far):
How long have you been working on it?:
Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book):
Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):
Are you looking for a Critique Partner?:
Are you looking for a Beta Reader?:
