The Share Your Darlings Blogfest and WriteOnCon

We've all heard the term "Kill your darlings". Well, I've heard it, at least, so that means everyone else has, right? ;) Anyway. Now you have the opportunity to share those beloved scenes you had to cut because they weren't moving the story forward. Michelle Gregory of beautiful chaos is holding the Share Your Darlings blogfest on July 1st. She's even added a book giveaway, so be sure to check it out. You can add your name to the link list here.

Here's a button I made, if you'd like to post it on your blog to help get the word out. The code for a sidebar button is below. And if you'd prefer one without  blood spatter, you can find that on Michelle's blog. :)

Sidebar button code:

Also, in case you haven't heard, be sure to check out WriteOnCon for some awesome news about a FREE online writers conference. Here's a vlog with all the info.

Be sure to stop by the blogs of all the organizers for a chance to win some cool prizes. :)

And Tere's contest ends on Wednesday, so make sure you get over there and enter.

Happy Monday, everyone!


  1. The on-line writers conference sounds like a GREAT idea...except I don't write YA. :(

  2. Abby, thanks for the post and the button. splatters or no splatters, it's just what i needed.

  3. That's a great idea. Now I need to go look through old versions. The conference sounds wonderful except that's when we start holidays and I can't take them any other week.

  4. Sorry, I ate my darlings. I got hungry, and they were just lying there all dead and delicious...

    Thanks for letting me know about this. And thanks for the shout-out!

  5. Doesn't that conference sound awesome? I'm so there for the blogfest.

  6. I can't wait for the conference as well...I think it's so cool that someone finally organized this.

    I feel like an idiot, but I don't quite get what the blogfest is about. I'm on like three different kinds of cold meds--nyquil among them, so you'll have to forgive my confusion.:) can you tell me more about this?

  7. Great blogfest coming up. And hey, thanks for the linkage to WriteOnCon!

  8. Patti, there will be transcripts and the content will remain up so you can view the blogs and vlogs after your vacay. :)
