Rebel [Writer] With a Creed

Thanks to Cate over at CommuniCATE, I found a creed that just might give me the boost I need to commit to working on my novel(s) this year.

Writer's Rebel Creed 2014full

The Rebel Writer’s Creed was developed by Sheri A. Larsen, in collaboration with followers of her blog.  If you want to “pledge,” all you need to do is sign up on her blog by clicking here.  And if you are feeling really ambitious (which I was at the moment), you can agree to one or two other commitments:

  1. Copy the CREED Badge and paste it on your site, encouraging others to join.
  2. Write one post a month somehow related to your journey in following the CREED. Choose a day and time to your liking. Just include the badge in your post, linking back to the original post so others can join in. Share your post via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or however!

What I love about these additional but optional commitments is:  (a) #1 was particularly easy to do; and (b) #2 will help me track my progress without demanding that I spend more time posting to my blog than actually working on my novel(s).

So, what about you?  Care to join up?  Do you have creed of your own that you’re following for 2014?

  1. I’ve never been clear on what a creed is. Seems like an oath. Nice list of items though. All rather basic, but essential.

  8. I fully endorse you 1.) becoming an expert at marketing, and 2.) Supporting other writers. Namely, me, with your marketing skills!

  11. That’s a great list, Marie. Too bad it takes us being rebellious to follow them. But then I guess that would make things too easy. :)

    • There you go: it is much easier to sit back and not believe in myself than to go forth and write like I do :)

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
