3-Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway!


Good news! 

Peevish Penman has been at it for three years! It's like being thirty in blog years and it's time to celebrate with the thing that gets writers the most excited: A GIVEAWAY!

TOP PRIZE: WRITE-IT-NOW SOFTWARE FOR NOVELISTS

Write-It-Now: screen shot
I'm giving this away, because I couldn't live without it after I discovered it and every writer should have it. It changed how I organized information and sped up the novel writing process that had been dragging on for too long.

There's a free demo on their website if you're interested in getting familiar with the software.

$59.99 USD Value... 

SECOND PRIZE: A 5 PAGE CRITIQUE OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT

Winnie and I (Carrie) will both go over your first five pages with a fine comb hunting out any detail that detracts from the readers enjoyment and interest. When we're finished, you'll have a set of actionable suggestions in the form of a SWOT (strength - weakness - opportunity - threat) analysis and  to work with to improve your work.

THIRD PRIZE: A COPY OF THE HANDBOOK OF THE WRITER SECRET SOCIETY

I can't reveal what you'll discover in the handbook, but the secrets of great writers and details of a terrible conspiracy are in there waiting to be unleashed by your imagination.

There is a point system for entries that works as follows:

+1 Follow Peevish Penman on RSS, Twitter or Facebook for 1 point each.

+2 Share a post from Peevish Penman on your Facebook or Twitter account for 2 points each.

+3 Mention Peevish Penman in a blog post (with a link to www.peevishpenman.com) for 3 points.

Three years is a long time to be blogging about writing, but the people Winnie and I have met online via this blog and our other social media accounts have been incredible. Thanks to everyone whose commented, written a guest post or just wasted hours tweeting together. You're all awesome.

Have some cake!



 TO ENTER: FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE TO RECEIVE POINTS, TALLY YOUR POINTS AND LEAVE THE TOTAL NUMBER IN A COMMENT BELOW. WE WILL DRAW WINNERS FROM SEPARATE ENTRIES AT RANDOM ON SEPTEMBER 31RST, 2012.

  3. Hi, the Scrivener (http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php) is fine too, but I really like the non-distraction software like the TextRoom (well, works for first drafts).

    1. I have to admit. I haven't used either. I've been happy with Write-It-Now plus there's something inspirational about the name.
