On Mondays I will discuss my writing plans and anything that has caught my attention for the coming week. On Tuesdays I will post a teaser from my current read and another from a work-in-progress. On Wednesdays I will ask you a writing or blogging related question. Finally, on Fridays I will post my usual five writing related links and take part in a new meme called Book Blurb Friday.
It's Monday, so over to . . .
The Week Ahead
There are two exciting events starting this week. This Friday is the first Book Blurb Friday, hosted by the wonderful Lisa Ricard Claro. BBF is a new and unique meme that challenges you to write a book blurb for a set image. Here is how it works:
'Every Thursday evening I'll post a photo that we'll pretend is the cover of a book. In 150 words or less (length of the average book blurb) write the blurb that you think belongs on the back of the book. You create the story, decide the genre, fiction or non, etc. You'll post your blurb on your site with a link from/to this one so others can find you or come here to participate.'
'The goal: Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.'
This week's book cover to tempt your creative taste buds:
The second exciting event is Wonders of the Universe, which starts Sunday 6th March on the BBC. This is a must see series for anyone remotely interested in science, astronomy or physics. Last year's Wonders of the Solar System was a huge success and launched Professor Brian Cox into the public eye - his enthusiasm and passion for physics is contagious, so don't miss out.
That is it for today's The Week Ahead. Is there anything happening this week you think we should know about?
