Let’s write together! 2017 #AtoZChallenge Blog-Ins

Howdy! I’ve recently had a brainstorm about my blogging, as it relates to the A to Z Challenge. This is an annual tradition at my blog. And I will definitely be participating again this year (my sixth!), but with a twist (which I revealed on Monday).

That being said, I also really enjoyed hosting a few local blog-ins during last year’s challenge, and thought I would try that again this year.

What’s a Blog-In?

Basically: bring a laptop, tablet, phone or pen and paper to write with, and let’s write together! I usually organize my Blog-Ins something like a “Sit Down, Shut Up and Write” event, where attendees will have about 15 to 30 minutes to meet up, mingle, grab some snacks or beverages, and get settled, and then everybody gets down to business and writes for at least an hour. I usually set aside a block of 2 hours for the meet-up, so if you want to drop in a little later, you’re welcome to do so – as long as you don’t disturb fellow bloggers. We can also chat after the set blogging time, if you’ve got questions about the A to Z Challenge, blogging in general, or just want to say hi.

I’ll also bring some writing prompts and theme ideas to share, in case you’re stuck and don’t know what to write about.

Let’s do this!

So, if you are in the San Diego area and would like to blog with me, here’s my Blog-In schedule for the month:

I’m trying to make these Blog-Ins as informal, fun, and accessible as possible, so hopefully these times, dates and locations will work.

If all else fails, I can reschedule to accommodate the group – so let me know if you’ll be there!
