All it takes is for you to create...
All it takes is for you to write...
All it takes is for you...
to sit down and write that book.
As you see in the picture above, that is a quote that I live by. It's one of my favorite quotes of all time. I just don't know who said it, but they are a genius.
This month has been hard. This month is NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month.
Why did they pick this month to host this? I have no idea. I know I have too many things on my planner, and to write everyday is going to be hard. Especially the week of Thanksgiving!
And we are only halfway through!
So how is everyone doing? Did you give up? Are you still hanging on? Do you want to win some items?
Whoa. Wait. What? Win?
Yup, I am hosting a giveaway here on the blog for all those writers out there! I was going to host this in the beginning of the month, but I had another idea. Last year, around this time, I gave up on writing my book. And I found out, I wasn't the only one.
I want to tell you guys not to give up, so I giving away items.
So, now to the prizes and how to win.
One Grand Prize Winner will win:
- (1) spiral notebook
- (2) lead pencils [the yellow pencil writes in this turquoise color]
- (1) light-up duck pen [it also quacks]
- (2) $25 gift certificates to any restaurants listed on restaurant.com
- Winner's choice of book or books that is worth up to $20.00 from AMAZON
The notebook, pencils, and pens are for you to get started on your book. Write down your ideas, your plot, your characters, and etc. The gift certificates are for the celebration! And the book is for you to read while you are not writing.
About the book prize: Let's say you find a book worth $10.98 and you see another for $10.98. The total adds up to $21.96 before tax and shipping. That counts. If the price is close enough to $20 before tax and shipping, than it counts. Price above $25 will not count.
And now how to win...
Since this is, NaNoWriMo, all I am going to do is make you do one thing.
We want you to write whatever comes to mind. It can be a poem, a sentence, a short story, and etc. Whatever comes to mind.
But there's a catch. I want you to write something by using one of these three words. YOU ONLY NEED TO USE ONE OF THE WORDS!:
For example: The raven looked like a seeker, while soaring above the lake.
See easy enough. To enter, just comment below!! As always, one entry per person.
But if you happen to tweet about the giveaway mentioning @TheStorySeekers, I will give you an extra entry.
Also, if you let me know how far along you are in words for your book, I will give you another extra entry.
EX: I am at 54,837 words so far in my book.
Good luck everyone, and keep writing! -Emilia
