Goober Writers Anonymous


According to the Urban Dictionary--a kindhearted, oblivious goofball.

We've all made mistakes hundreds of times during our lives.  Some of them were huge, life changing mistakes.  Others were just kind of annoying or quirky.  Today, I am organizing a group where we can all come together and admit our writerly mistakes to each other.  After all, the most therapeutic way to get over our mistakes is to share them with friends.

How to Join:

Simply leave a comment below with your email address and I will contact you about sharing your mistakes in a blog post on this blog.  You can guest blog once if you only have one story to share, or you can guest blog numerous times if you have many stories.

Benefits of Joining GWA:

All members will have links to their blogs posted on the sidebar to the right.  Plus, the more guest blogs you do here, the more potential followers you can find.  And isn't it just nice to be a part of a group?

You also get to carry the GWA badge on your blog!  

I will share one of my own stories on Thursday to get the group going.  In fact, let's make Thursdays Goober Writers Anonymous day!  Sound good to you?  Excellent.

In the meantime, join up!  :D

  7. I don't really NEED to join, because I already put my mistakes up all over my blog (check the label queries - rejections) but ... I'll join because I love the community! You've got my email, just let me know what you need.

  8. Gah! We're going to ADMIT our mistakes? Hahaha. Okay, I'm in. I can laugh at myself, yes I can. Writers should never take themselves too seriously, right? My email:
