Have you noticed #Speedbo circulating on social media? If so, you may have wondered about the new hashtag. It's a shortened version of the words Speed Book and stands for the March, month-long writing challenge featured on www.seekerville.net.
Many of you know about NaNoWriMo, the Internet writing project that runs each November. Speedbo is similar, although each participant submits their own personal writing goal for the 31-day period. The goal is kept private, is never shared and serves only as motivation.
Knowing other writers are pushing forward with their own work helps to build community within the seemingly solitary writing world. Many of us need support and encouragement, which Speedbo provides. The focus is on finding time to write. No editing needed, just page after page of story that adds up with time.
As of now, 125 writers have signed on and are writing toward their goals. Want to join in the fun? Sign up at Seekers@Seekerville.net. There's no charge, but there are weekly prizes. Anyone who leaves a comment on the daily Seekerville blog is entered and has a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card or a one-chapter critique. Plus, you'll get a certificate of participation to hang near your computer to spur you on!
For those who have dreamed of writing, what's stopping you? Speedbo is the perfect time to get started!
Wishing you abundant blessings,
