WiP: the Movie Blogfest

I'm about to take my first plunge into a blogfest - given my love of all things movie related, it's one I simply couldn't pass up!. Kyra Lennon at Write Here Write Now and Rachel at Writing on the Wall are hosting WIP: The Movie. Join us!

The details from Kyra's blog:

WiP: The Movie Blogfest

Since I've been blogging, the fun of blogfests has helped me meet some awesome new people and also helped me to learn a lot of things I would have otherwise missed out on. I love reading snippets of everyone's work, and getting to know each individual writer's style and genre.

With that in mind, I would like to announce a brand new blogfest which I am co-hosting with Rachel at Writing On The Wall!

WiP: The Movie - March 9th
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to post a photo of the actors or actresses you would like to play the characters in your WiP if it were to be made into a movie. It can be just one character, or the entire cast!

Secondly, we want you to soundtrack your movie! Head over to YouTube, and post a song that best describes one of your characters, or your story as a whole. Again, you can pick one song, or several, it's entirely up to you!

All we ask is that you follow these simple rules:
1, Follow me
2. Follow Rachel
(We will follow back) 3. Sign up using the linky list at the bottom of the page
4. Add one of our funky graphics to your blog to promote the event
5. Post your entries on March 9th, and hop around to see the other entrants on the list!

The Prizes

Rachel and I will each pick a winner at random, and we will be giving away a copy of one of our favourite books which were turned into movies!

Please note: If you write a blog post about this fest before March 8th, you will get an extra name in the draw to win a prize!

From me:
Water For Elephants OR Bridget Jones' Diary

From Rachel: The Princess Bride OR The Hunger Games (which is tipped to be AWESOME!)

If you have any questions, feel free to ask because I am sure I will have missed something out lol! Hope you can all join in!

Happy casting and ¡Buen Provecho!
