"ROAR": what's lioning in to the jungle in march

I co-host a weekly chat for writers and bloggers on Twitter (the #WSChat) with a few lovely fellow writers. This month, my co-hosts came up with the theme "In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb," for which I'm extremely excited. And while I can't wait to see what it means for the #WSChat to take on this theme, it also got me thinking about what a "lion" of a month March is going to be. I'm taking on several writing-related projects through the month of March and inviting you to join me in some of them!


On Monday's posts in March will be related to National Novel Editing Month (NaNoEdMo). NaNoEdMo is an opportunity to take a novel (say, the one you wrote for NaNoWriMo) and begin editing it. I have several projects to choose from, but this year I intend to work with my NaNoWriMo novel manuscript from three years ago, "Grimmland." I'll be sharing personal updates, and some personal editing techniques.


I'm really excited about Wednesdays, because of the new Wordsmith Studio book chats. This month, our hostess Sopphey Vance is leading a "Read 1 Watch 1 Challenge" in which we'll be reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone! I'm excited to be on the "Gryffindor House" team (see the previous link to see more on how teams and points work) ... and how fitting for this "lion" of a month!


Another thing I'm excited about is finally having the opportunity to get back into the swing of posting resources and book reviews. I've had the chance to read several good ones lately, and have had to put off sharing reviews for the past two months. this month I plan to dedicate Friday posts to those books.

I hope you enjoy the book-based month I have planned. It ought to be a fun one!

  1. I definitely think this month will be a roaring month of fun! So much to do it's going to be great!

  2. I've gotta give you guys kudos on energy and time management. My only major challenge this month is getting my chapbook finished and out from last month's challenge. I'd love to join you in this next little adventure, but my time just won't allow for it. I'll be cheering you on and if I have a spare half hour, I'll peek in to see how you're doing and listen in for a while.

    (y) to all who participate.


Thank you so much for your comments! Please feel free to share your thoughts here; I look forward to engaging in conversation with you!
