5th Annual PlotWriMo Contest

For four years I've offered PlotWriMo as my gift to writers everywhere for fearlessly writing stories w/ plots. Let your friends know about to the event where I provide daily revision prompts, taking into consideration the time of year. 

As my thanks to you for spreading the word, I'm awarding:


Every week, the writer with the most Tweets & RTs (there's also MT, I believe, though I have no idea what it means) using #plotwrimo and @plotwhisperer that week is awarded your choice of any one of the three plot books in the Plot Whisperer series.

(Note: I just now realize that for an accurate count, you must include @plotwhisperer along with #plotwrimo)

One winner is awarded each of the following weeks:

Saturday, Dec. 1st -- Friday, Dec. 7th 
Saturday, Dec. 8th -- Friday, Dec. 14th 
Saturday, Dec. 15th -- Friday, Dec. 21st 
Saturday, Dec. 22nd -- Friday, Dec. 28th 

The Plot Whisperer Book of Writing Prompts: Easy Exercises to Get You Writing isn't officially due out until January. However, if the other two plots books in the Plot Whisperer series are any indication, PW Book of Writing Prompts will begin shipping in Dec. If PW Book of Prompts is your choice, you may have to wait for a week or two or so.

Tomorrow begins International Plot Writing Month and you are joyfully invited! Visit the Plot Whisperer blog here everyday beginning the 1st and throughout December.
