I'm a full-time student and mother, writing is not what I get to spend most of my time on during the day. I am also not one to flourish under the pressure of NaNoWriMo and besides, that's just to write a manuscript - this is pledge is for the entire processes - drafting, finalizing, editing, seeking publishing and (hopefully) seeing your name on the cover of your first book.
Now, I'm taking this pledge too; a promise to myself and my supporters, that I will take the steps necessary to further my writing and my career in 2010.
So, who's with me?
If you are ready to join in and make a promise (or at least really try), join me - feel free to join in whenever you are ready. I would really love to see would-be authors who have yet to publish but anyone who needs that boost should join us. Please, take this seriously and post the following in your blog, linking back to this post.
I, ______________, take The Aspiring Writers Pledge to write a book in 2010 with the intent of publishing. I promise to update my progress weekly, ask when I need support and encourage others to complete the task at hand.
