Whilst trying out my new writing schedule of going onto social networks after I’ve finished my writing for the day, I recently came across Rachel Harrie’s Writer’s Platform-Building Campaign through Google+.
This is Rachel’s third time in running this campaign, where the aim is to connect other writers and help build their platforms. I carefully considered joining this, as my main concern was – do I have the time to dedicate myself to it, even if it is only for a couple of months? As I’m not studying during this semester, I didn’t hesitate too long. I believe it is a great way to meet other writers through various social networks and via my blog. I can read the blogs of other writers and they can read mine, so I won’t feel as if I’m talking to myself anymore! 😉
The campaign began on 22 August, 2011 and runs until 31 October, 2011. If you want to join in and become a part of this great campaign, you don’t have much time left. The list of campaigners will close on 31 August, 2011. If you’re interested in joining me, you’ll find me under these categories: Picture Books/Chapter Books/Early Readers/MG/YA, Horror, Paranormal, Suspense/Thrillers, Short Stories, Australian/New Zealand Writers. Okay, granted, I went a little crazy, but I wanted to make sure I had all my bases covered, right? A big thank you to those of you in the campaign who’ve already stopped by on my blog and introduced yourselves. I intend to return the favour shortly – as you can see I have a lot to get through.
So, now I’m back to my original dilemma – trying to make sure that I don’t let these social networks interfere with my writing time!
