Five years ago, seven wishful writers sat around a large oak table at a mountain retreat, and decided they wanted to start a blog. A few months later, Bad Girlz Write was born.
Our hope and purpose was to help other writers on their journey toward and through publishing. Even those adorable, wide-eyed 2012 Bad Girlz knew the publishing industry was tough. We knew we’d need a cornerstone for all of the education and emotion required to write and sell fiction. Over the years, this blog served as that stone. More Bad Girlz joined the blog, and we shared the joy and laughter, the sorrow and stress, and the triumphs and defeats that come with being an artist and professional. (We shared some pics of hotties along the way too.) We hope this blog has served as a place of information and education, and as a comfy spot to commiserate with other writers. A place where you know you’re not alone.
But, we’re coming to a time when the Bad Girlz need to retire from adding new posts. The blog will remain here for years to come, but on August 29th we’ll have a huge final post to commemorate Bad Girlz Write’s retirement. Like all great parties, there will be music, dancing, drinks, and laughter. We hope you’ll visit the blog on that day, and party with us.
Over the next rotation, we’re going to post our “Best Of” or favorite posts from the blog. After that, each Bad Girl will share a post about the last 5 years; what she’s learned and how much has changed.
We want to send Bad Girlz Write off with a bang! This blog was a dream of ours that came true. Now, we turn the page toward new dreams and adventures, but we want to take the summer to thank our followers and celebrate all we’ve learned with you. Please join us over the next couple of months as we say Bon Voyage, Bad Girlz Write!
