Round Robin Blogvel

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. Tried to get done with school and then got a spark of an idea with my manuscript, so I've been working on that.

I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be in a 'Round Robin Blogvel'. This is a title my friend Michelle at Greenwoman made up last year when she came up with the idea of having blogging/writer friends to all write a chapter for a story. She wrote the first chapter and each week somebody else took over and wrote the next one. It sounded like a lot of fun, but at the time I was a little too shy to participate in it. I wrote a short story for a blog contest she had. I ended up writing three for three different blog buddies last summer. They turned out better than I ever thought they would.

So this year, when she said that was so much fun, she wanted to do it again, I said I would. I think there are 14 of us, and she'll write the first and last chapter. The chapters will go up every Monday. I'm not scheduled until July, so the story will be well on it's way by the time I get to it. She'll post it  on her blog sometime today. As I type this, it's still WAY early in the morning in Oregon, so it will be a little while. I can't wait to see what she's come up with. Her imagination rocks!

I'll make sure to have a link to each chapter on the other writer's blogs, so stay tuned. If you decide to read this remember, there are a lot of different writers with all different styles. It's not a contest to see who can write the best chapter. So don't judge I'm sure as far as experience and quality of writing, I'm pretty low on the  totem pole. This is to challenge us to start a story and twist and turn it and hopefully keep it interesting. I'll be in and out today running errands, so when her post goes up, I'll let you know. :D

Hope your week is a great one



  1. Yay! You'll do great, Red. :) And I'm excited to follow the blogvel. It was a lot of fun last summer. :)

  2. Thanks Precy! I'm struggling not to call you I'm excited too. Not nervous about having performance anxiety or anything...maybe that's a bad sign. EEK!
