I discovered this pledge on Liz H. Allen’s blog after flicking through from somebody else that I follow. It seems to me to be a pretty good idea to connect aspiring writers and readers looking for new material to sink their teeth into.
I, Rebecca Clare Smith, take The Aspiring Writers Pledge to write a book in 2011 with the intent of publishing. I promise to update my progress weekly, ask when I need support and encourage others to complete the task at hand.
Okay, so maybe I won’t manage the weekly thing, but I shall try. I know I haven’t mentioned the WIP very often lately, but as you’ve guessed I’ve had an awful lot of other stuff on my mind. This pledge will hopefully help me to focus on that, even when other stuff gets in the way.
If you’re an aspiring writer too, then perhaps you can take the pledge? All you have to do is add the declaration of your pledge to your blog or website and then repost from my repost below. It’s not hard and it might just give you more support and confidence than you had before.
Why don’t you join me?
“Now, I’m taking this pledge too; a promise to myself and my supporters, that I will take the steps necessary to further my writing and my career in 2011.
So, who’s with me?
If you are ready to join in and make a promise (or at least really try), join me – feel free to join in whenever you are ready. I would really love to see would-be authors who have yet to publish but anyone who needs that boost should join us. Please, take this seriously and post the following in your blog, linking back to this post.
