Author Blog Challenge – Writing Prompt #1

Though the Author Blog Challenge DOES NOT OFFICIALLY BEGIN until Saturday, June 2nd, I want to give folks a heads-up with the prompts, so I’m publishing them a couple days early. Tomorrow we will post the 2nd prompt. And going forward, we will post the current day’s prompt, along with the next two days’ prompts. Get it?

So now, without further ado, the 1st writing prompt for the inaugural Author Blog Challenge is:

Describe your earliest memory of writing. How did your writing habit/process/career develop?

We will also create a Prompts page with all of them in one place.

We will attempt to aggregate excerpts from a handful of each day’s posts.

Each daily participant will be entered into a drawing for a giveaway donated by another participant. If you want to donate something but haven’t yet sent me your description and the link where the winner will claim it, please do that TODAY!

Those who manage to post all 28 days of the Challenge will be entered into a drawing to receive all 28 days’ giveaways and a gift card to the bookstore of their choice.

If you have any other questions, please read the Rules first. Then read through the past posts. If you don’t find the answer there, toss an e-mail my way and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. Also remember to look for support among our Facebook group!

Just two days till we’re underway!
