Voice Week – Things to Know

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Voice Week starts Monday, and if you’re like me, you’re not quite ready yet! If I can just get those last two voices sounding right…

Anyway, some housekeeping before we start:

Inspiration Monday is postponed until next week. So you get two weeks to play with the prompts I posted last week! Woohoo!

Remember to check the Voice Writer list. The right-hand column over here. Make sure your name is on it if you are participating, and comment if I still need to add you. I think we’re up to 20 people – great crowd!

Don’t worry about what time you post your voices. Without fail, every year, there’s some poor soul apologizing for posting early or late. The thing is, unless you mention it, I WON’T KNOW. We are in all different time zones, and my two-dimensional brain can’t even remember whether Australia is behind or ahead of Texas, let alone by how many hours. So I’ll just assume you’re all posting on the right day for your time zone. NO WORRIES!!!

There aren’t really rules. So don’t be nervous if you’re not sure what you wrote is what the challenge called for. Everyone interprets it differently, and that’s part of the fun!

Subscribe to (or hang out at) Voice Week HQ. I’ll be reblogging links to ALL the voices on that site, so you can click through to ’em all and get the whole scope of Voice Week in one place. Be sure to comment on what you read – the conversation is part of the wonderfulness.

So let’s get this fun started!
