Writing Races

If you haven’t already heard, Australian Writer’s Marketplace online runs Writing Race forums: a fun and inspiring kind of online writing group for members. They get together on the internet on Tuesday nights to set their goals, working on their own projects offline for one hour during the race. For about half an hour before and after the race there’s also a chance to discuss your projects, the craft of writing and any other industry gossip. People rave about this online writing group, and I’m incredibly excited to say that this Tuesday 11th May I’ve been invited as a special guest racer. At 8pm QLD time I’ll be revved up and ready to write, working away on my latest young adult project during the hour. I’m also really keen to talk all things writing with the other racers, and I’d love to see you all there!

Here are some incentives to come along:

  1. I’m a painfully slow writer, so there’ll be at least one person there you’ll beat
  2. I’ll bring virtual chocolates and I have been known to share
  3. I don’t drink coffee (even cyber coffee), so there’ll be more there for you
  4. You’ll get a guaranteed hour of dedicated writing time
