How Wannabe Writers Works


Wannabe Writers is my internet writing group.  Everyone is welcome to join.  It's a place to meet other writers, ask questions, and get feedback. 

Here's how it works:
1. My posts: Every Thursday I do my own Wannabe Writer's post.  Basically, my posts consist of my writing progress, my current writing issues, and any questions that I'm hoping other wannabe writers can help answer. 
2. Your posts:  If you want to participate further, all you have to do is create a similar post.  You can call it 'Wannabe Writers' or whatever you'd like.  It can be modelled like mine or something completely different. Just be sure to link in the comments of that days post so I can visit your site too.
3. Everyone is welcome to join! You can join at anytime and don't have to participate every week.
4. Be sure to sign the Mr. Linky I no longer no the Mr. Linky part.  But if you've created a similar post, then like I said before just link your blog in the comments on that day's Wannabe Writers' Post. 

See you on Thursdays!
