Hello! Thanks for keeping up the Tour de Writing comments in my vacation absence. We had a blast, visiting Sesame Place, Luray Cavern, Atlantic City, and the horses of Assateaque Island. Unfortunately no writing took place. And, if you are paying attention, you will see that we visited PA, VA, NJ, and MD. Phew. It was indeed a tour of the east coast.
But today is a different story--WriteOnCon begins, and the Tour de Writing ends. And four people will win prizes!!
I'm buzzing off to check out the writeoncon festivities, but before I go, I want to say thanks to everyone for inspiring all the revising I got done this past month. The camaraderie and competitive writing was a wonderful incentive to get the work done. What with vacation, and the natural rhythm of revision, I'm not quite where I wanted to be today, but I am so excited that I am seeing the end of this revision. Cheers!
So, here is the protocol for the finish line of Tour de Writing:
1. By midnight on Wednesday, please email me (hegkelly at gmail dot com) with your total count--every word written and every word revised between July 5th and today, August 10th.
2. Let me know the total number of practice rooms, or let me know that you already included those point totals in your above total. 1 Practice Room=500 bonus points.
3. Tell me what is your first and second prize choice. Mockingjay? Paranormalcy? Livvie Owen Lived Here? Or your choice of an awesome Mad Bag!!
4. Tell me whether your word count is drafted words, revised words, or a combination of the two.
Please check back at the end of the week, and take a view of the fabulous winners!!
Congrats to everyone who has participated!! Thanks for making my crazy competitive writing game a success!
Okay, and I was going to add wonderful pictures to this post, but maybe later, as I just checked out today's schedule for writeoncon, and it's already in full swing! I'll see you there!
