I've been thinking about having a blogfest for a while, since they're fun and interactive and a good way to meet new people. Kind of like intramural frisbee, minus the potential mishap and awkward displays of athleticism.
But they take up a lot of time, don't they? I mean, we all like to be nosy and read each other's stuff, but it's consuming and tiring and thinking of clever comments for 50+ folks can get taxing, to say the least.
So then I thought, what would promote the community spirit, indulge the creepy stalker in all of us, and still be fast and writing-related?
And it hit me.
I'd like to propose a Writing Space Blogfest!!!--
--in which we all share photos of our writing spaces, whether it be a desk, a couch, a coffee shop, a pad of paper--whatever.
If that's too creepy for you, maybe you could just describe it to us.
Purple prose is welcome--nay, demanded!
Don't lie: you totally spend at least half an hour cruising YouTube or Googling pictures of babykittenssqueeUmaThurmansboobsdismemberedarmvodkamtrushmorethailandtattoos.... Or is that just me? Anyway. Point being, we can look at pictures pretty fast, right? And it's easy to say, OMG, I love your self-portrait composed in macaroni noodles and macrame! I have one just like it! So inspiring!
Since NaNoWriMo is coming up, and I know a lot of us are participating, I propose this blogfest be held on November 1, 2010. That way you can schedule your post, or if you're too lazy or forgetful for that, you can quickly upload a slap-dash photo of your chair. No pressure.
That gives you 12 days to beautify that little nook, or at least dust the cobwebs out of the corner *cough*.
Until then, spread the word for me, and add your name to the linky at the top right of the blog.
Lazy writers unite!
