I have an official date for writers camp!!!!

I'm sorry I've been gone for so long! I meant to post before this, but I went to the Ocean and - yeah. That is a post for another day.

BUT LOOK-Y HERE!!!




Writers Camp will start on August 10th and will last until September 7th.

What is it: Writers Camp is a sort of "Pick Me Up" for young writers in need. It is similar to a Blog Party, only for this event we're focusing more on a learning/inspirational experience. Don't be put off though! I'm going to make this so called "Camp" as fun as possible!

The Rules: Anyone can participate, but you must link back to my blog. You should also follow me. 8-D This camp is going to be very family oriented, with a high focused on wholesome books that we don't see very often anymore. Things like Friendship and Family stories will be greatly emphasized. If I find some of your stuff super inappropriate, I won't post it.  (I honestly don't think this will be an issue at all. Most of you who seem interested write really good books. 8-D )

How it Works: Everyone who joins will send me an email with the link to their blog and the type of genre you tend to write it. You can have more than one. If you don't have a blog, this is no big deal. You can guest post on my Other Blog, Till the End of the Line. Just email me and we'll work something out. When Camp begins I will post the different participants on my blog, with the links to their blogs. I will continue to posts these links every day of Writers Camp.

EMAIL ADDRESS - ( bellawriter98 @ gmail . com )

What it focuses on: Writers Camp will focus on inspiring the Inner-Writer through prompts, games, tags and other creative stuff.

What It Will Cover: Writers Camp will cover a multitude of Topics, especially the importance of platonic love and realistic romantic love, and the need for a strong show of good VS evil in your books.

How Long It Will Last: The Last Day of Writers camp will be the first week of September. The reason for this is to give plenty of time for people to join without feeling awkward, and also to give us breathing room with the Days.

Who Can Join: Anyone can join! All Writers are welcome! Just stay classy. (As I said, this shouldn't be a problem. ;-D )

There will be Thirteen Official Days.

Day One:  Introducing the Writers and discussing what their genre is. (Fantasy/Historical Fiction/Sci-Fi/Steampunk...)

Day Two:   This Day will cover prompts! I will post prompts and Plot Bunnies. You pick from the Prompts/Bunnies I post and use them as a guide to help you get creative during Camp. You can choose how many you decide to work with, and you do not have to do more than one. But you can if you want to. 8-) On Day Four you post your finished Work on your blog and link it back to me.

Day Three:  Tag, You're it! Day three will be a Writers-Tag! 8-D

Day Four:   Prompts and Bunnies! Everyone will post their Prompt/Bunny. Link back to me and I will link back to you!! 8-D

Day Five:  Bring Out the Books! Everyone will share certain Authors and series that are their personal favorite and explain why they like them, how they were inspired by them, and how others might be inspired.

Day Six:  Break Out of The Mold: Have you noticed that a vast majority of books now days seem to have that certain mold? Now is time to break out of that! This Day will cover the importance of a unique story and why it is so important to write the books you want to write, not the books "The Public" craves. Believe it or not, a lot of people want fresh ideas, despite what you see on the shelves. You can all post stories/books that you see as unique, or at least Stand Out.

Day Seven:  Love/Family. This day will cover the importance on positive strong friendships,and family bonds. We'll discuss books (or TV Shows/Movies) with a positive angle to these topics, as well as books (or TV Shows/Movies) With a negative angle.

Day Eight:  Happily Ever After: We'll talk about The Importance of strong, realistic romance. As with friendship/family, we will show books (Or TV Show/Movies) with both positive and negative angles on the topic. Share some things you would like to see in a romantic relationship.

Day Nine:  What's You Writing? Share the plot/characters of at least one book you are currently writing.  You are totally welcome to ask for feedback. 8-)

Day Ten:  Sample Time! We share snippets and samples of our writings. You can even write random scenes that have nothing to do with your books, but still show us what style you have and things like that. Again, you can absolutely ask for feedback.

Day Eleven:  Would you Rather/What Now?  This will be a Writing Game! Basically, you will pick a character from a book you are writing on and put him through a Would You Rather/What Now? Test. I will supply the test. You have three days to complete it. This game helps you to understand your characters better, and it also helps you think as a writer.

Day Twelve:  Conquering Writers Block!!! Okay, writers block is the worst obstacle a writer can face besides Plot Hole. This day will cover the different ways you can conquer or outsmart writers block, and how to keep yourself writing when you'd rather nap and give up on the whole thing.

Day Thirteen:  Be inspired! Share things that help/inspire you with writing. Put out some ideas on what you think might help other writers get on with their work.

We still have plenty of time and a lot of breathing room! If you had any ideas for writers camp, or anything you wanted to cover, go ahead and leave a comment. We can always tweak days, or even add more if you want. But be sure to float your ideas past me before August 10th.  8-D


Peace Out Y'all!!!

  1. Yippee! I hope I can keep up, but I'm definitely joining. This sounds like such fun! The crazy part of my Summer is almost over (I think.......) so I should be able to do at least most of it! I'm off to email you!

  2. This sounds so fun! I'll be going back to school around the middle of Camp, though, so I'm not sure what my schedule will be. I can almost certainly do the majority of days, but do we have to do all of them?

  4. Definitely joining! You've created some really good themes for this camp (and I like the name "camp" rather than "workshop" or anything else). I'm looking forward to this!
