IWSG ANNOUNCEMENTS!


ATTENTION IWSGERS!



VOTE for the genre for our next Anthology!

There are 10 genres to choose from. Please vote only once. Voting starts today and ends on July 8th. VOTE HERE The theme will be revealed after the genre is chosen. Then you'll be able to write a story for the contest. :) 

NOTE: The first anthology was sci-fi, so you'll notice that is not an option. 



NEW IWSG Day Feature!

We’re revving up IWSG Day to make it more fun and interactive.

Every month we'll announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. The first IWSG Day question is for July 6th.

JULY 6TH QUESTION: What's the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?

Add this question and your answer to your July 6th IWSG Day post. And please visit other members to read their answers. 

If you’re not signed up, please join HERE.

See you on July 6th!

  4. I voted already. Super cool. I can't wait to see which category wins, although I have to admit, it was really hard to pick just one.

  7. I highly doubt historical will win, but I voted anyway. I'm looking forward to the new IWSG feature, and seeing how it might inspire bloggers' entire posts.

    1. You never know. If we continue to put together anthologies year-after year, one of these times it will be historical, because (as far as I know it) we're trying for different genres each time. :)

  8. The question added to IWSG sounds like fun. I'm thinking.
    Time to vote.

  11. I really need to pre-write my July post. I have a bit of a get-away this weekend. I'm hoping to get some writing done.
    Yes, I did vote. If it turns out to be the genre I voted for, or another genre I'm familiar with, I may consider entering the writing contest. It's about time I start to do more with my writing.
    Really looking forward to this next IWSG, it'll be something different for me. More on that later. ;)

    1. Awesome. It's an anthology for the members/writers, so they should vote for the genre. :D

  13. This new IWSG 'question' feature is terrific! It makes a great starting point for those of us who aren't sure how to begin a post about insecurity ;-) I voted, but it was a tough decision. Can't wait to see which one wins!

    1. Exactly. That's the goal with the monthly question.

      Voting was tough even for me, too. I had to debate between two options.

  14. Lets see which question gets most votes.

  15. I voted! I had a hard time deciding between a couple different genres though. And I love this new question feature for the IWSG. I sometimes have a tough time knowing what to write for my posts, so this helps a ton!!
