October Group Writing Project

This writing project has ended. Please view the full list of wonderful entries at the October GWP Finale, and subscribe to MamaBlogga to find out about the next group writing project!

After the four previous successful Group Writing Projects, we’re gonna do it again. It’s time for the October MamaBlogga Group Writing Project!

The theme for the October Group Writing Project is “The best things about this age.” We’re writing about our favorite things about our children at any age—where they are now, where they’ve been in the past, what you hope for the future. Feel free to go in any direction that appeals to you. Even if you don’t choose to participate, you can encourage others to participate!

  • Your post can take any form as long as it reflects this theme—this includes anything from serious to sarcastic, addressed to your child, your future child, your pet, etc.
  • You can participate with a blog post, a podcast, a video, a page on your website, etc., etc. If you don’t have a website, contact me and I’ll be happy to publish your entry here on MamaBlogga.
  • Only NEW posts (i.e., posts have not been published prior to 7 October 2007) are eligible. Posts must be submitted through the submission form before Monday, 15 October 2007.

Why participate?
There are lots of reasons to participate! All entries that meet the guidelines will be listed and linked to here on MamaBlogga. This an opportunity for you to discover new blogs (and for others to discover yours!). Last week, I came up with five ways to get the most out of the GWP.

And, of course, there is one more incentive: one lucky post author, drawn at random, will receive a $30 gift certificate to Amazon.com (to be announced Monday, 15 October 2007).

Finally, we’d appreciate it if you linked to this post or to the guidelines/submission form on your entry post so that others can learn about the project and participate.

As a side note, I didn’t settle on the topic for this GWP until this morning, so I didn’t get to send out the topic to previous participants early. If you want or need longer, we can change the final deadline (and, therefore, announcement date) of the project.

Now get writing!

  1. No, as I mentioned in the post, I didn’t settle on the topic far enough in advance to send out emails in advance. Hopefully, I’ll have a chance to do that today or tomorrow.

    But the GWP hasn’t ended; this is the beginning announcement.
