Closing Ceremonies for the 2017 Winter Writing Festival!
Posted by Elisa Beatty Feb 28 2017, 12:01 am
Oh, my goodness! Is it just me, or does the WWF go faster every year?
Once again, we’ve reached DAY FIFTY! That means this is our final Check-In Tuesday, and time to extinguish the famous Writing Festival torch for another year.
You still have ALL DAY today to work towards your goals–nothing ends until midnight your time. (As always, the Festival is always about YOU.)
And we know everyone who stuck with the Festival is finishing up with LOTS AND LOTS of fabulous writing progress, and has Creative Fires blazing that will carry them forward for a long time to come!
For now, let us know if you made your goals!!
Good news: Thanks to popular demand, SPRINTS will continue in the Chat Room as often as possible!! The wonderful Autumn Jordon has already volunteered to keep the morning sprints going, 7:30 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday! Let us know what other times you’d most like to continue, and let us know if you’d be willing to help host!
We’ve got a Twitter hashtag #rubysprints, which you’re welcome to use to put out a call for anyone who wants to jump in for some spontaneous sprinting.
We also hope you’ll continue joining us right here on the Ruby blog for your daily dose of writing inspiration as we continue on our collective writing journeys.
In the next few weeks, we’ll begin counting down to the Golden Heart and Rita Nominations for 2017. And be sure to join us on March 21 for our raucous CYBER-PARTY as the finalists’ names are announced. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some of the WWF Participants’ names being announced and want to pop a bottle of cyber-champagne with you!!!
But now, grab a steaming mug of cyber-cocoa and some of our scrumptious Festival Finale cyber-brownies, and leave a comment below (jump to the Ruby blog, if you’re over on the WWF site) letting us know if you made your goal for the week, and if you made your overall goals for the Festival! If you did, grab a copy of the WINNER badge and post it on your Facebook or website, or tweet your victory to the world!
Of course, since we’re the Rubies, prizes are involved. Anyone who leaves a comment today will be entered in a random drawing to win one of the following:
A signed copy of any Grave Series (Charley Davidson) Book from Darynda Jones. (USA only)
Thanks again, everyone, for being with us for the Festival!
As always, it’s been an honor to share in your incredible energy and creativity! Keep those embers burning!
We’re hoping to meet as many of you as possible in person at Nationals…and we’re looking forward to seeing lots of Festival books on the shelves before too long!
