WriterRecharge 2015

It’s February, which means it’s time for Writer Recharge!

Who desperately needs this?

 

Once again hosted by Sara BirenKaty Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, Elodie Nowodazkij, Writer Recharge is your chance for a four-week jump start in the middle of a cold, dreary winter. Set goals for yourself, check in once a week, and connect with other recharging writers.

This year, our hosts provided a few helpful categories to consider when making goals. You can choose a goal (or goals) for one or some or all.

  • WRITE/REVISE – Choose writing goals for the month.
  • READ/REREAD – Read a book that’s been on your TBR forever or reread something that had a great impact on you.
  • STRETCH – Do something outside your comfort zone, from reading a genre you typically avoid to trying a new food or rock climbing when you’re afraid of heights – that kind of thing.
  • SELF – Do something good for your mind or your body.
  • CONNECT – Find a way to make a difference in someone’s life. Make a connection, via social media or in person. Initiate twitter writing parties, have a real-life write-in with writers in your town, or offer to critique or beta read someone’s work.
  • FUN – Make a goal to do something super fun and exciting that you can look forward to

HOW THE HECK DOES THIS WORK?

  • First week of February: Post your goals for the month on your blog, website, or Twitter. Use the hashtag #WriterRecharge. Link your blog post here (below).
  • Every Monday in February: Update your progress via your blog or twitter. Link your blog posts on our Monday posts.
  • Throughout the month: Use the hashtag to connect with other writers, have writing parties, and cheer one another on!
  • Friday, February 27: Post your final update via your blog or twitter.
  • Anyone who uses the hashtag or links their blog posts will be entered to win a fabulous prize package at the end of the month.

  1. Ooh, I might read OPEN ROAD SUMMER this month, I need a good romance after the last few very sad books I’ve read.

    Good luck with your goals and I’ve got my fingers crossed for you when you start querying!
