Teens Can Write, Too!

Changing the world's opinion… as soon as we finish this math homework

TCWT May 2012 Blog Chain

 

Just because I can

ETA: 3/29/14: *If you’re one of the awesome people who finds these past blog chain posts through search terms, you can go here to find more recent topics and to sign up for a current chain.*

 

Somehow, April is already almost over (sorcery, perhaps?), which means it’s time to announce the prompt for next month’s blog chain! This time, I wanted to go with something diverse yet universal in the world of writers, and so I came up with this.

“Why do you write?”

Yep. I know. Probably the simplest yet most challenging topic out there, but I’m so curious about what you guys have to say that I vote we do it anyway, even if all of us are currently staring at the computer screen like this right now, with no idea how to answer:

About John Hansen

I’m seventeen. I’m a YA writer, a nerdfighter, and a book geek, and I recently finished a year-and-a-half stint interning at the literary agency Foreword Literary (now Fuse Literary). I'm also a Game of Thrones and Lucille Bluth enthusiast, and my ultimate life question is, if you are what you eat, then does that mean I should eat a NYT bestselling author?

    Hiya! It’s me again :)
    Could I please have a spot in early May, preferably on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday? I have exams coming up very soon, but I would love to be able to take part anyway :)

      How about Saturday, May 5?

    This is my first time signing up for this, but I guess a Saturday or a Monday would be best for me (though I’m not adverse to any other day). I’ve been wanting ti do a post about why I write for awhile anyway :)

    I’ve never done this before, but I’d really like to! Could I have a Thursday? Thanks.

    Wow. That is a broad topic indeed. If things get any more broad, we’ll be asked to answer the great question of life, the universe, and everything, in more words than just “forty-two”. I’ll participate.

    • Allegra Davis
      April 18, 2012

      Perhaps next month we’ll narrow things down again. I’ll put you down for May 8.

    sign me up! Also, I got two questions for you, one: could we write why we blog? and two, I know you are doing the July. chain, so can I reserve the 11th of July ? (It’s my birthday :D)

    • Allegra Davis
      April 18, 2012

      Sure, blogging counts as writing.
      I’ll put you down for May 9.
      I’ll try to remember your reserved date. You may have to remind me, though.

      • tomte

        May ninth.., Got it.
        I can’t wait! This is probably one of my favorite topics so far…:)

        I keep forgetting to tell you, but since this is somewhat important, I forgot. My blog needs a new name, and right now its temporary name is The No Name Blog, since I can’t think of any other relatively good names. I’ll keep you guys posted.

    I’m in! The 10th or 11th (or somewhere around then) sounds good, as usual.

  8. I’m in! Any day that isn’t a Tuesday works for me!

    I’d love to participate! I did it once a couple of months ago, but then life got really busy. Looking forward to doing it again!

    • Allegra Davis
      April 19, 2012

    Hi! I’m completely new here, but I think I want to participate. It appears that I’ll be able to follow examples set earlier in the month, so I’m all for it! :)

      Nope, you don’t have to sign up every month. You can come and go as you please. If you participate this month, you aren’t obligated to join again. Shall I put you down for May 16?

        Erm I’ve now been offered both the 17th by you and the 18th by John (via email). Which would you prefer me to take, I’m happy either way.

    Hi,
    Go with what Allegra says. I must have mis-typed or read the wrong date.

    Is this still open? And if so, can I join on May 25th?
