Aspiring Writers Pledge

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.


The Aspiring Writers Pledge: From aspiring writer to novelist in 2010

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.
