TCWT July 2014 Blog Chain


As always, a huge thank you to everyone who participated in last month’s blog chain! All of the posts were really thought-provoking, and it was especially cool seeing such a variety of opinions on book-to-movie adaptions. (If you missed the chain, you can still see the list of participants and their posts here.)


Since the last few blog chains have focused more on actual, published books, I wanted to return to a writing-related topic for July. 


“What’s one thing you wish you knew when you started writing?” 


Once again, you can pretty much go wherever you like with this topic, whether it be an actual advice post, a discussion of aspects of your writing journey, a list of what you wish you knew/what you’ve learned (you are certainly not limited to choosing only one thing), or something else entirely.


If you’re interested in participating in the blog chain, just comment below with a link to your blog and any days you can’t post on, and I’ll try to assign you a date as quickly as possible. (First-time visitors: you are completely welcome to join as well!) The final schedule for July’s chain will go up on our blog chain page on July 4th, so you have until then to sign up. Thanks! 🙂

    Cool idea! I’m trying to think of good days to blog… I’ll be doing Nanowrimo, so I’ll probably do most of the prep work ahead of time…
    I guess just any day works for me. I’ll write the post and schedule it for that day, I guess. (I love that feature.) http://erinkenobi2893.wordpress.com/

      I love it too. It really does come in handy.

      I’ll put you down for the 12th so you have some extra time in case you need it. 🙂 Good luck with NaNo! I’m debating whether to try it (except I’d do it with revising).

        Okay! Thanks. 😀
        And lots of people do. I’ve been thinking of having a few minor revisions to the already-completed parts of my Nano novel, such as the insertion of “Baeltyr”‘s alter ego, and a few days on his own before running into Iris…

    I’m in! Preferable not the 4th, the 12th, or after, like, the 20th — I’m going away, and I’m not sure exactly when. The week of the 7th is mostly free for me, so some time then would be great? 🙂

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      Sounds good! I’ll put you down for the 8th.

        That’s great, thanks. 🙂

  3. Great prompt! I’d love to participate. The 10th or the 14th would be best for me, but if those dates aren’t available any Monday or Thursday would be fine as well. 🙂 Looking forward to it!

    Hi, finally found the courage to participate! Between the 7th and 11th would be optimal for me, but no worries if there isn’t a date that suits 🙂

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      No, that works well! I’ll give you the 9th. And I’m so glad you are joining!

        Great! Consider me dancing a jig of dual excitement and nerves 😉

    This one sounds fun! Any time after the 14th would work out for me. I’m excited!

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      Thanks. 🙂 I’ll put you down for the 16th, then!

  6. Could I possibly do any date after the 18th? 🙂 If that’s not possible, then anything before the 11th works too 🙂

    The 18th of July would be great for me! ❤

    I am so in! Can’t wait!
    I can do any day!

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      Awesome! I think I’ll put you down for the first slot, the 5th, if you don’t mind. 🙂

        That’s perfect! Thanks.

    Could I have the 11th, please? Thank you!

    I’m in! I’d an early date, but anything’s fine.

  11. I’d love to join again. Can I have a date late in the month, please? I’m actually in the process of moving my blog from Weebly to WordPress, and I just want to make sure that my new blog is all set before I participate in the chain. My old address is http://butterfliesoftheimagination.weebly.com/
    My new address will be https://butterfliesoftheimagination.wordpress.com/

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      Perfect! I’ll put you down for the 20th, if that is late enough. 🙂

    I’m available after the twelfth, but I’ll need a little time to write the post— anywhere after the fifteenth would be great for me, I think. Sounds like an interesting prompt, with lots of different answers.

  13. Could I please have a date towards the end of July? Any except the 24th or the 31st would be awesome.

    This is such an awesome topic, I’ll have fun thinking up a post… 🙂

    • John Hansen
      June 29, 2014

      Thank you! I can’t wait to read it! And I’ll put you down for the 21st. 🙂

  14. I’m so in. I love this topic! I will take any day.

    I’ve never done anything like this before, but I’d love to give it a go 😀

    I can blog most weekdays, and definitely every Monday and Tuesday…I’ll be out of town until the 6th, but that’s a weekend anyways =P

      July 2, 2014

      Hey! Welcome! I’ll give you the 22nd, a Tuesday. 🙂

    Hi! If there’s still a space would definitely like to participate in this blog chain again.

    Hi! I don’t know if there’s space left, but we’d love to participate–preferably later on in the month. Thanks. http://thependanttrilogy.wordpress.com/
