A round of words.

Today marks the first time for a few things.

For one, I’ll be hosting a write-in at the Bench. I’m not sure what that means, exactly, past the expectation to have a whole bunch of people come in, sit down, charge up and write. Should be a fun thing and further, fun to get out into the community to share my own attempt at art – writing. I plan to leave about 20 minutes at the end where we can share our favourite part from what we’ve written today.

What’s more – I’m starting a writing challenge today called #ROW80. It’s like the quiet little brother of NaNoWriMo. They quip that it’s “The writing challenge that knows you have a life”. I’m down with that.

One of the things that always intimidated me about NaNoWriMo was the lifeless aspect of it. I couldn’t ever see where I’d be able to gather the time from, so ROW80 fits right in. They allow 80 days, instead of 90 days, for the completion of basically whatever writing goal you’d like. In this case, I’m going to write 50,000 words in 80 days to complete my first novel, Atlantik.

I’m really excited about the story; it’s basically a re-written, alternative ending to WWII. Imagine this, if the German’s can’t win, they want everyone to lose. They unleash a new and terrifying technology on the battlefield which traps Eddy and his men in the middle of a new, seemingly unwinnable war.

If you’d like to participate in ROW80, here’s the best part – there’s no start date. Have a look at the link above and start writing!

    I haven’t checked in here for some time since I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
