It’s easy to spend all of your time writing about creativity but not actually creating.
Over time, it becomes easy to start things. It’s glamorous, it’s exciting.
But to finish a project—that is often another story. I find excuses and I procrastinate.
I realize I can’t do this alone. Without you—without community, I will fail.
A few months back, I started a writing community, Writer’s Unite. I also lead a twitter chat (on Tuesday nights 9-10 EST) called Write Stuff (just search using the hashtag #writestuff on Twitter).
And I love the community at both of these spaces. But now it’s time to do the work.
So what’s the challenge? A poetry ebook. The topic is love and relationships—however you interpret that topic. Even if you’d like to contribute a couple Haikus, that’s fine too. You can read more about the ebook guidelines and send in your submissions here. The deadline is next Thursday (2/28/13) so there is not much time to waste.
I am excited to share these amazing artists have confirmed they will contribute to this project:
I hope you will consider sending in a submission as well. But don’t forget the deadline is next Thursday. It’s time to get to work. Again, you can send in your submissions here.
