Four weeks until the WritingStrides blog goes live on April 15. It's pretty exciting to think about growing a community of writers where we can encourage each other in writing, especially now that I've been learning about your goals. I've been impressed. You dream big, and you dream in specifics. When I decided to write, I only knew I wanted to write. I didn't really know what that meant. But you have some very detailed dreams: to get published in a specific magazine, to be a travel writer, to publish scientific papers (yep, you read that right), to publish blogs... the list goes on.
The awesome thing about having such specific goals is that you have two very key pieces of information: you know your starting point and where you want to be.
There might also be a whole lot of unknown territory in between, but I think that's important, too. It's where all the fun happens. And the learning and growing. It's in honor of all that unknown territory that I'm announcing my first official WritingStrides Giveaway: a set of three coaching sessions with me.
Here's how it's going to work. Subscribe to the WritingStrides Newsletter, and use the WritingStrides Block Buster. Then, email me your writer's statement and your first three steps to the future by April 14. I'll randomly draw one winner from the entries and announce it during launch week, the week of April 15. There's some fine print: the giveaway is for newsletter subscribers only, and the mentoring sessions need to be used within one year of winning. But other than that, it's really that simple.
I'll be waiting to hear from you (and yep, your answers will confidential, just between you and me).
