Hello old friend!
Yeah it’s been a year since the announcement of our Writer of 2017, and we think we’re ready to come back for Novel Dreamers 2: Electric Bookaloo!
Over the next few days, you’ll be noticing this years alumni joining us on the page and introducing themselves. New faces, old faces, new old faces, they’ll be here. So with that in mind, I should introduce Novel Dreamers and myself.
WHAT IS THIS?
Novel Dreamers is a monthly writing challenge that lasts a year. The writers are given a subject, 4 weeks, and a 1500 word limit with which they create wonderful content that you, dear reader, will hopefully vote on to help me crown one of them Dagna’s Writer of the Year. There will be additional criteria or stimuli throughout the year, but for now that’s the run of things.
WHO IS THIS?
Remember me? Steve Archer: The Man, the Myth, The Migraine.
I am now older, so let us run off the boasting card. I am a writer of several years experience. I have had my scripts performed in multiple locations across the country. I have written over 3 albums worth of music, I have 2 novels in progress, I write little nothings a lot. I am known for my writing style of dark, eclectically pop culture referencing, fantasy based (most days), and sarcastic. I try to move out of this comfort zone occasionally, like with the challenges in this. My favourite writers are Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I like poking things that people would wish left untouched, but never in a derogatory manner; sometimes you just need to laugh at the things you’re not meant to, and there are people who will say the things you need to hear to do that.
I will be writing the example pieces once more, and I will be giving me the weekend to do this to challenge myself once more but to give some breathing room to make something worth reading all the same.
SO! Let’s go get some writers, and I’ll see you October 8th with our first writing challenge.
