A Challenge Blog for Writers – “Collections from the Unpublished”

I thought I would share this for the writers and authors who read Layers of Thought. Its a blog called Collections from the Unpublished - which has a writing theme. It looks to be a space to share and connect with other writers while expanding your skills.


Below is what Sarah has written - taken from her site:


1. Create your own post: Tell a little about yourself by sharing where you are in the writing process and then pose your own writing question(s) for the week. Preferably post will be made every Saturday, but feel free to choose a day that works best for you.

2. Everyone that agrees to participate will try to visit each other's posts and leave comments! (The point is to help each other by giving out advice.)

3. Everyone is welcome to join! You can join at anytime and DO NOT have to participate every week.

4. Be sure to sign the Mr. Linky Widget each time so that other's can find your "Wannabe Writers" Post! You don't have to title your post "Wannabe Writers", that's just what I'm calling mine.

Past Wannabe Writers Questions: 

#1 How do you stay motivated?
#2 Finishing a Novel. How to write the perfect ending?
#3 Voice. What's that? How do you make it different for secondary characters?
#4 Editing during the writing process. Is it bad to edit as you go?
#5 What is age appropriate for Young Adult?
#6 How to write characters of a different race?
#7 How to start a story?

(Feel free to comment on past questions.  All these problems I am continuously struggling with.  I'm always looking for more insight.)


She is also, currently hosting a 50 day 50,000 word challenge which started several days ago. They are on day 7 so there is still time to catch up.


THIS JUST GOT SERIOUS.  We're actually doing it.  It's already day three the 50K/50Day challenge I've given myself.  Find out more (here).  So far things are going smooth enough.  I wanted to thank all my blogger friends who are supporting me and joining me.  You all are giving me so much confidence to stick with it. 


Two readers at Layers of Thought that are participating:

  • Robin of My Two Blessings
  • Laurel-Rain Snow
  • Both badges above have live links to the site.  As for my participation, maybe in the next year or so. Until then I shall just lurk.
