What I’m Writing – week seventy-six

by | May 9, 2016

Welcome to week seventy-six of What I’m Writing.

If you’re wondering what the heck I’m going on about and where are the other seventy-five weeks, let me explain.

You can find all the details about #WhatImWriting here but the short(er) version is, this linky is for all you fellow writers, poets, bloggers etc. out there to share posts about what you’re writing (and all your hopes and fears, triumphs and tears) with a group of people who understand what you’re going through.

I’m hosting this linky for the lovely Maddy, who blogs at Writing Bubble. She is taking a well-earned break after spending the last few weeks blogging (and the rest) her little heart out in the run up to the Kids strike. Maddy, along with Sophie from Sophie Is, organised a campaign to run alongside the strike, to highlight what learning should be all about. Their #THISislearning initiative generated some amazing, creative ideas and got people all across the country thinking about the way we teach our youngsters.

Maddy has also set up a private group on Facebook that all linkers are welcome to join. It’s somewhere we can share work and have a chat about all things writerly (and whatever else we fancy really). It’s a ‘secret group’ which means you’ll need an invitation to join, so once you’ve linked up just let me know and I can organise an invite.

To get a feel for what the What I’m Writing linkers usually get up to, you might want to take a look at last week’s posts.

If you’d like to join in you’re very welcome! There are just a few suggestions for taking part:

  • Link up any post (old or new) that is to do with writing/blogging etc.
  • Please either use the What I’m Writing badge on the post or link to my blog. I will share your post on Twitter in return.
  • Read and comment on as many other posts in the linky as you can. What I’m Writing has developed a lovely, supportive community and we’d love you to join in.
  • If you’d like to tweet your post, feel free to use the hashtag #WhatImWriting. You can tweet a link to your post to @writingbubble or @nicola_cyoung, for a RT.

Please link up below – just click on the blue button that says ‘click to view and add your link’ and follow the instructions. I look forward to reading your posts.

    Thanks so much for hosting Nicola! I’m just attempting to re-enter the blogging world and put together tomorrow’s post so I haven’t had a chance to catch up with last week yet. Thanks for holding down the fort so well. xx
