It's Digital Writing Month

I must admit, I miss lots of holidays (I never quite got cards out for Grandparent's Day?) and lots of special months slip by me (Did you know that November is a month of daily Thanksgiving?)
I am going to TRY to do some posts about aspects of my professional life for which I am grateful this month; however, Kevin, my virtual, technology mentor says, this morning, "It's Digital Writing Month," so I figure this one is worth at least sharing.  Check it out!

How Does One DigiWriMo?

  1. First of all, if you haven’t registered, do that right away by filling out the form below.
  2. There are no discussion forums anywhere! Because digital writing takes place everywhere on the web, so will our discussions. Plan to join our Twitter chats using #digiwrimo, head over to our Facebook page, and post plenty of comments on any and all DigiWriMo-related blog posts (here and everywhere). Virality is the best form of dialogue!
  3. Not all digital writing has to be public. But, if you want to share your work with others, do so by posting it on our Facebook page, on Twitter using #digiwrimo, or tag your blog posts with “digiwrimo”. That way, you’ll have all the audience you deserve for your grueling hours of digital brilliance. We’ll be curating content created on the web via the #digiwrimo topic.
  4. Check the calendar! All the Digital Writing Month events (including not-to-be-missed guest blog posts) are posted there. We’ll have weekly discussions and writing exercises all month long.
    And be double sure to check out the Night of Writing Digitally!
  5. There are no secrets to doing DigiWriMo, no right way and no wrong way to do it. Some people may write a novel using their computer and call it a day; while others may write hundreds of Twitter haiku. The key to success is your imagination and your love of experimentation, exploration, and fun.
But first, register…
