Writing on, and about, an island

Down the Rabbit Hole I Go…

In Books, Crime & Mystery Writer, Tasmania, Writing on June 1, 2012 at 10:34 am

The writing marathon starts tonight, at Hobart’s Salamanca Arts Centre. I’m going to attempt to write 30,000 words in about 30 hours – with a group of strangers. It’s a national thing, and is, like all my favourite things, COMPETITIVE!

We have an exciting weekend ahead of us! Teams in Melbourne, Brisbane and online will be watching the Tasmanian contingent closely! We’ve got a full house with a waiting list – so if you’re having second thoughts let me know early.

Participants in all states and online will be staying in touch via Twitter and Facebook. In these spaces you can update your word-counts as well as encouraging (or dissing) the other teams. If you tweet about the Rabbit Hole, don’t forget to include the #rabbithole and #ewf12 hashtags. To keep in touch via Facebook, join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/events/341870419210286/

Twitter? What’s that?

Anyway…

Here are two of my favourite posts on writing lo-o-ong…

  1. Would like to say good luck, but you don’t need luck. thirty thousand words in 30 days isn’t difficult. I know it’s cliche but really the only rule that has ever helped me is don’t wait for the words, and as the old professors says B.I.S. Huh? Butt in Seat. I hope your tip into your art goes well.
