Day 50 – And Time to Say Goodbye….Or Just “So Long”!

Posted By Elisa Beatty on Mar 2 2015, @ 1:42 am

snow-printI’m always a little shocked when we actually hit the 50th day, and the Winter Writing Festival is over for another year!!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the energy, humor, inspiration, and camaraderie that make this time of year so special…and so productive!

Please join us over on the regular Ruby blog for the final Check In Monday of the year, along with our closing ceremonies. And, of course, prizes:

  • Critique of first three chapters and synopsis by Diana Layne (hard copy only – winner must provide SASE)
  • Critique of synopsis and pitch by Amanda Brice
  • $25 Amazon gift card (Darynda Jones)
  • Printed copies of the “Book Club” series of Last Chance books (Last Chance Book Club, Last Chance Knit & Stitch, Inn at Last Chance) by Hope Ramsay

We’ve also got a plan for keeping the writing sprints going into the spring, so check it out!!

I hope the Festival has been good for you, and that we’ll see you around the Ruby blog year-round…and back here for the Winter Writing Festival 2016!!!

Thought for the Day

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
