Winter Writing Festival Closing Ceremonies
Posted by Elisa Beatty Feb 28 2013, 1:01 am
Amazingly enough, DAY FIFTY of the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood’s Winter Writing Festival has already arrived!
This is our Final Check-In Thursday and Closing Ceremonies rolled into one.
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.)
After that, though, the great Writing Festival Torch (yup, it’s real, carved out of a gigantic ruby and guarded by handsome cabana boys…right here next to me as I write) will be extinguished until next year. But we know the embers will keep on glowing, and the Creative Fires will continue to burn bright inside each one of you!
In the end, let us know if you made your goals!! Once you’ve have reached 50 points based on your personal goals, you can copy the fabulous .jpg below and post it proudly on your own website:
We 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.
Be sure to stop by the Ruby blog next Wednessday, March 6, to share your Reflections on the Winter Writing Festival–after you’ve had a few days for it all to sink in, tell us what you’ve learned in the process, and give us advice and ideas for making the Festival even BETTER next year.
Also, starting in the next couple weeks, we’ll begin counting down to the Golden Heart and Rita Nominations for 2013. And be sure to join us on March 26 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!!!
I want to take a quick moment now to thank our wonderful and amazing Ruby Sister Liz Bemis of bemispromotions.com who built both our websites! We could never have held this Festival without her!
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) summing up your WWF experience.
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:
Thanks, everyone, for being with us for the Festival!
It’s been such an honor to share in your incredible energy and creativity, and we wish you the best on your journey forward!
We’re hoping to meet as many of you as possible in person at Nationals…and we’re looking forward to seeing your Festival books on the shelves before too long!
