Writer Recharge 2015

Welcome to February! Time for another Writer Recharge!
WriterRecharge 2015
Once again hosted by Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Sara Biren, Writer Recharge is your chance for a four-week jump start in the middle of a cold, dreary winter. (OMG I SO NEED THIS!)

Set goals for yourself, check in once a week, and connect with other recharging writers.
This year, we’ve come up with a few categories you might want to consider when making your goals. You can choose a goal (or goals) for one or some or all:

  • WRITE/REVISE – Choose writing goals for the month.
  • READ/REREAD – Read a book that’s been on your TBR forever or reread something that had a great impact on you.
  • STRETCH – Do something outside your comfort zone, from reading a genre you typically avoid to trying a new food or rock climbing when you’re afraid of heights – that kind of thing.
  • SELF – Do something good for your mind or your body.
  • CONNECT – Find a way to make a difference in someone’s life. Make a connection, via social media or in person. Initiate twitter writing parties, have a real-life write-in with writers in your town, or offer to critique or beta read someone’s work.
  • FUN – Make a goal to do something super fun and exciting that you can look forward to.
  • How Writer Recharge works:

    First week of February: Post your goals for the month on your blog, website, or Twitter. Use the hashtag #WriterRecharge. Link your blog post here (below).

    Every Monday in February: Update your progress via your blog or twitter. Link your blog posts on our Monday posts.

    Throughout the month: Use the hashtag to connect with other writers, have writing parties, and cheer one another on!

    Friday, February 27: Post your final update via your blog or twitter.

    Anyone who uses the hashtag or links their blog posts will be entered to win a fabulous prize package at the end of the month.

    My goals –
    WRITE/REVISE : Get started on outlining the Galileo Strategy, my sci-fi/fantasy novel
    READ/REREAD : Get really going on A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin. It’s been waiting forever.
    STRETCH : Get all my things together (including my brain!) for my first speaking gigs in March
    SELF : Get on the treadmill every day
    CONNECT : Get all the authors from Author Rodeo Roundup on the podcast. Have already talked to one and booked three more!
    FUN : Want to watch ALL of the show Empire. Not just the last ten minutes each week. It’s good and I like it.

    Well that’s about it. More later.

    1. Good luck with outlining. I know how daunting that can be, but so much fun too. Would love to hear more about it as the weeks go by! And enjoy A Feast For Crows. I mainlined all the books a few years ago (after years of avoiding them!), and love them.
