Hi everyone. This notice was approved by Black Dragon, who recommended that I post here. Thanks, Black Dragon!
Hi everyone, I'm Kira, the admin/co-founder of the EpiGuide webfiction and webseries community, which has been around since 1998. I'm here to invite you to participate in our sixth annual month-long writing marathon, starting on August 1 and running until August 31, where creators of online serialized fiction in any form are challenged to write like you've never written before. And it's not your typical writing challenge, because this time you are in charge of setting your own ambitious goal.
If you write or are interested in developing anything from webserials to ebooks to webcomics to video webseries to Twitter fic to chapbooks to internet radio plays to serialized novels and anything else created regularly for the entertainment of the online and mobile audience, this is the marathon just for you. As I mentioned above, befitting a project as individual as yours, with WeSeWriMo you pick your own goal. 1K words a day? Two installments a week? 40K words and a set of new character biographies or other extras? It's totally up to you. The EpiGuide celebrates the ingenuity and variety of writing for the web, and we wouldn't dream of imposing a strict, arbitrary number on you.
Visit Web Serial Writing Month: Writing Marathon for New Media for complete details. You'll need a free EpiGuide forum account to sign up, but once that's taken care of you're ready to post on our official sign-up thread and add your series/project to the list. Deadline for registration is August 1.
WeSeWriMo is about breaking a new path in a new world of entertainment and publishing. Don't play by the rules--make your own!
Hope you guys consider participating! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We also have a FAQ that answers a lot of the basics, and there's also a Webfiction World Podcast where I was interviewed about WeSeWriMo in advance of last year's marathon.
Thanks again to the Mythic Scribes community for letting me share our project with you.
