I am so looking forward to JWAT this year.
OK i'll bite!!
What or who is J-Wat??
I know I will probably feel silly latrer for asking this. My mind is like mud today!!
If Eleyne doesn't get back to explain, I will.
No need to feel 'silly', Glenda. Would you believe I WANTED you to ask about J-WAT?
J-WAT -- July Write-A-Thon. For those who wish to join us, we take the month of July to 'crash write'. Lots of writing, bad writing, fast writing. The key is quantity, not quality. (Of course, some folks use it to edit previous work instead, but I'm not picky there. LOL)
I started it because I was never able to participate in the National Novel Wrting Month (NaNoWriMo) in November. (School, dontcha know.) But the summer doldrums seemed to demand some sort of action, hence the July Write-A-Thon.
The 'big' idea is to write 50K words in 31 days, or a rough draft of a novel in a month. As I said, I'm not picky, so if you want to write peotry, letters, blogs, whatever ... just go for it. Its primarily a 'reason' to just write and be productive. If you had the idea of writing a novel, a memoir or a collection of short stories, join right in with the rest of us as we write fast and furious.
Does this answer your question, Glenda? Or have I muddied the water further? LOL.
I hope you'll join us ... or at least cheer on those of us who are allowing our brains to fry in the summer heat.
Sounds like the perfect way to while away those sleepless hours to me, Glenda. I hope you're able to join us.
Maybe putting your thoughts onto paper or into pixels will help you sleep?
