Join the #FirstDraftFriday fun!

Updated: Apr 9, 2021

#FirstDraftFriday is off to a great start in 2021, so let's keep the fun rolling...Join us on the first Friday of each month to get a picture book first draft written and maybe win a prize!

An awesome line up of guest authors is waiting to share their tips and tricks on how to turn that fabulous idea into a fabulous first draft...or at least a full first draft! It doesn't have to be fabulous (that's what revision is for); it just has to be done.


So mark your calendar to check out my blog the first Friday of each month for that day's inspiration! Things "officially" start at 8 am ET with the post, and then it's time to work on writing your draft. Join us on the Twitter hashtag for encouragement and accountability!


If you finish before 8 pm ET, comment on that blog post to be entered into a drawing for a critique giveaway from the day's featured guest. Easy-peasy! (PSA: You can adjust your writing window to suit your time zone, but you must comment by 8 pm ET if you want in on the giveaway drawing.)


The #FirstDraftFriday guest authors line-up is:


March 5 - Ana Siqueira


April 2 - Valerie Bolling


May 7 - Phaea Crede


June 4 - Annemarie Riley Guertin


Stay tuned for the second half of the year line-up to be announced at a later date!


Again, to win a critique, you must write your draft on the designated #FirstDraftFriday, comment on the day's blog post by 8 pm ET, and follow both me and the day's guest author on Twitter.


To make that last step easier, why not just go ahead and follow us all now? We're at:


Hope to see you on #FirstDraftFriday!

I finished my first draft! It's an idea that's been rattling around in my brain for a bit, but I hadn't yet gotten down on paper. Thanks for the push to write it!

Yay! Just got mine completed! Thank you for motivating me to do this! It also helped me with my 12x12 PB Writing Challenge for this month! 😁

Done! Two in fact! (I was seized with inspiration, and possibly a twinge of guilt as I hadn't written any of my StoryStorm ideas.) Thanks for this great motivation, Hollie!

I am actually motivated to get up at 8 am! I hope you don't mind, I will follow along, but won't fully participate, as I write books that are around 2400 words. They are sort of like a heavily illustrated chapter book. But I love the concept of jumping in on the first Friday of the month and connecting with others.
