News from Forward Motion



(Although this is an older list of material, it is fun to look back and see what was happening when the ezine and Forward Motion were still new!)

There is always something going on at the Forward Motion Writer's Community. It's easy to become a member, and the site is free

Congratulations  Maren sold her first novel, ANISE, to Wildside Press. Coincidently, this was a novel she rewrote during the first Forward Motion Writing Dare!




January 1, 2001 is the first day of the second Community Writing Dare. We have over 30 people so far, but there's always room for more! There are several categories for this dare, which includes master and apprentice, novel, short story, and rewrite sections. Late-comers are welcome to join. There will be new dares starting in April, July, and October.

The site also features a daily writing exercise. These range from "Write an Interesting first sentence" to "Have a conversation with one of your characters." The posts are a lot of fun!
