I am here today to talk to you about a new, exciting, upcoming feature that will make its debut right here on Of Wonderland. As some of you may know, Inge and I aren’t just ferocious readers, ninja fangirls and bloggers, but we’re also writers. Over the years, we’ve both accumulated many a novel, both finished and unfinished (mostly unfinished on my part, heh), and we’d love to share our stories with you, Wonderlings.
We won’t be sharing our entire WIPs, hence the title “Snippets & Wippets” but we thought it would be a cool, new way of keeping each other motivated throughout our frantic writing months and our very long, very dreary dry spells. My brain has been the Sahara Desert for the best part of five months, and I want to get back into it.
What is Snippets and WIPets?
Snippets & WIPets will be a monthly feature in which we share tidbits about our WIPs — anything from chapters to playlists, Pinterest boards to character profiles, and maybe even artsy-fartsy covers we have conjured up in the past for NaNoWriMo and such.
But it doesn’t end there! Every month, we’d like to invite one of our lovely Wonderlings to take part, too! You guys will have the chance to post a little something of yours, whether it’s a playlist or a paragraph… whatever you like!
When will Snippets & WIPets start?
Snippets & WIPets will be debuting in January 2017, ready for the new year whilst our brains are fresh and our toes warm after roasting by the fire. We will be compiling a list of people wanting to take part and scheduling posts in the months of October to December, authors who may want to offer some sound, wise and needed advice, and even maybe plan a giveaway or two in the meantime.
January is also my birthday, so maybe 2017 will be the year I finally finish a novel? *laughs nervously*
What do I need to do to take part?
It’s super simple! Fill in the form below, including name, email address, blog (if you have one), genre you like to write, and send it through! We will get back to you as soon as we can, and arrange a date for your post.
I want to take part, but don’t want to share anything concrete. Is that okay?
That’s totally fine. This is just for fun, and we are not here to pressure you into doing anything you don’t like. You are free to talk about whatever you please, and share whatever you want, even if it means not sharing anything at all.
What can we expect from Snippets & WIPets?
Snippets & WIPets is all about keeping each other motivated to write, and so personally, I’ll try and share writing prompts in my monthly posts and you guys can write short stories in the comments or keep them to yourselves. The aim of S&W is to just keep writing, and both Inge and I have found writing in groups to be super satisfying and very rewarding. There is nothing like crying to your cabin mates during Camp NaNoWriMo, and nothing like getting your writing buddy to hold your hand whilst you battle that hurdle that will not let you pass, to get those writing fingers typing like Formula 1 race cars.
So here we are! I am so, so, so excited about this feature, and I hope you guys are, too! If you want to take part, fill in the form below, and don’t forget to share it with your friends!
