"Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty, study thoughtfully but write boldly. Then, like the hero of the fable, your dance will dazzle the world."
My lovely sister the Anne-girl is hosting a Crusade this month-- and I'm UBER-excited! Most of you have probably heard of National Novel Writing Month (www.nanowrimo.org), a program in which writers are challenged to write 50,000 words during the month of November. Anne-girl and I both participated in NaNoWriMo last year, but it took up a great deal of time and ultimately distracted us from schoolwork quite a bit. :P So this year, Anne is hosting her own writerly challenge-- she's asking you all to join in her crusade and write 50,000 words in the month of June. Now that school's out, it's the perfect time!
So hop on over to her blog (just click on the button at the top) to read more details. There will be tags, there will be challenges, there will be prompts, there will be fun... and all under Enjolras' Red Flag of Power and Awesomeness, because this entire month is Les Miserables-themed. What could be better??
