5 Reasons to Write Series




5 REASONS TO WRITE is a new series of blog posts. Starting with 5 Reasons to Write Super Short Stories, these posts will explore a variety of writing related topics - like 5 Reasons to Write Indoors, 5 Reasons to Write Outdoors, 5 Reasons to Write Commas, 5 Reasons to Write Speculative Fiction, and more. 

I'm hoping to get guests involved, so please consider one of the 5 REASONS topics listed here or create one of your own and e-mail me at tyreantigger (at) gmail (dot) com.

My plans for guest bloggers and writers are: to have a guest do a 5 Reasons post once a month, to host a blog fest in May 2017, and to put together an anthology for the end of 2017. 

If one of the crossed out topics is one that you would prefer, just e-mail me and you could do a 5 MORE Reasons post. 

Requirements for each post: state five reasons, have an encouraging/humorous/hopeful outlook, include one link or more (even if it's a silly link), and fall between 200-750 words.

Hello! It was nice to "meet" you through IWSG today. I'd love to write one of these guest posts for you. Looking through your list, I see a few I could speak to: #65 Superheroes #101 Scrivener and #94 Third Person appeal to me especially. You can check out my website to see more about me and some of the guest posts I've written elsewhere: http://samanthabryant.com I think we now follow each other on Google+ as well.

Great idea. I'll give the ideas some thought. Maybe you would like to post and appear in my Author Spotlight. It can be a writing topic about your own writing and books.
