Book-In-A-Week is Coming
The Seekerville Book-In-A-Week is an opportunity to:
A. Kick start your writing
B. Make stopping by Seekerville (often), a necessity
C. Stretch your writing muscles and see how much you can write under pressure.
D. Be a part of the Seekerville 2nd Year Birthday Celebration
Answer: All of the above.
What Is A Book-In-A-Week?
Book-In-A-Week, or BIAW is a week long period focused strictly on page production. It does involve clearing your calendar of all appointments and errands. It does not involve editing in any form. This is a whole week of down and dirty writing.
On Friday October 2nd you'll get your BIAW Prep: Quick recipe ideas, methods to keep you motivated, suggestions to keep the internal editor at bay.
Just think, this one week of writing could be a preparation for NaNoWriMO!
or part of an inexpensive writing retreat.
You could finish your manuscript in time for the Golden Heart or write that next proposal for your editor.
Start now to clear your calendar for BIAW. Click on this calendar and print it
for your own BIAW calendar.
