TCWT April 2013 Blog Chain

ETA: 3/31/14: *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.*

So last month, for the first time ever, the TCWT blog chain almost ran for a full thirty days. All I can say to that is: whoa. And also, to all of you fabulous people who have been participating:

(Seriously. I’m beyond grateful to each and every one of you who follows this blog. None of this would be possible without you.)

In less awkwardly sentimental news, this month’s blog chain topic is a little bit more serious than the recent ones:

“What is your ultimate goal as a writer?”

I know that getting a book published is a pretty standard ultimate goal for us all, so if you can, try to go deeper than that. How do you picture yourself seeing your book on the shelves? What kind of book do you want published? What kinds of readers do you want to attract? What conferences do you want to go to? Stuff like that.

I’m excited to hear what you all come up with!

    Great topic, John. If you need someone to organize next month’s chain, let me know. My e-mail is sarah.y.faulkner(at)gmail.com.
    Also, weekdays are better for me for the blog chain. I tried to join the chain last month, but WordPress hates me and my comments got eaten. 😥
