Welcome everyone to WEP 2021!
Renée and Denise are your hosts this month. We're relieved to see the end of 2020 and we're sure you are too. Here's hoping this new year will treat us kindly.
WEP is an enormous amount of work, so in the interests of the team's health and other commitments, we're making the 1st of the month post do some heavy lifting. There will be no post on the due date. Instead, the InLinkz is embedded at the beginning of this post and will go live on the due date.
We are continuing with WEP lite. This means that:
- Comment counting. We rely on your goodwill to read as many entries as you can, remembering how it sucks if only 2 people read yours. Don't let this happen! We applaud you for reading as many posts as you were able.
- Blurbs. Blurbs are a lot of work. We'll hold off on them again until further notice.
- Constant post monitoring. We'll still try to check the website and C-Box as much as possible, but if you have a very urgent query, email Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org or Renee at email@example.com.
- Shortlist and judging
- Winners' post announcement
- Winner's Guest post
- Mail Chimp emails (most of the time) - please check your spam folder as our emails contain links - some email providers are over zealous and send them straight to spam!
While we're talking about reading each other's entries, how about following WEP members on their blog/twitter/FB if you haven't already?
WEP is continuing with the popular Critique Prize for the winner along with the regular Guest Post. Each challenge a different editor/author will offer their unique prize. Check out the sidebar for our 2021 offereings. Have some work ready!
Our partners at the IWSG regularly promote WEP challenges on Facebook, so if you see them, please 'like' or leave a comment. Also, the IWSG offers us an opportunity to post our entry to a list after the challenge. So there's two opportunities to promote!
Tell WEP about your success and struggles in the writing world. Have you published a new book? A story included in an anthology? Found an awesome editor/cover artist? Found a sure fire way to beat rejection/depression/self doubt? Drop us a few lines, along with an image and link if applicable. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: "WEP Promo".
This shimmery, early 20th century painting of a couple embracing in a patch of wildflowers has riveted art afficionados across the world for decades.
Use this amazing painting to kick off a romantic love story of star crossed lovers. Or maybe a much married pair who’ve been together for years. Of unrequited or lost love. Or any love of the other gazillion types.
For unValentinish souls, remember that there are kisses other than romantic ones. The kiss of life, the kiss of death, the kiss of betrayal, the angels’ kiss in spring. The mystical thousand ways of kneeling and kissing the ground.
One golden artwork, a zillion directions to go. Pick yours and run with it. We’re cheering for you. And can't wait to see what you come up with!
