Robin Hood Week is the big event that I've been keeping under wraps since...oh, about three months ago. I was actually planning on doing it sooner, but I wanted to finish Season 3 of the BBC Robin Hood first, and then school, writing, emailing friends, etc, got in the way and I'm only just getting around to having it all organized now. I was also thinking about doing NaNoWriMo this year, but soon realized that doing a blog party and writing 2,000 words a day in a new novel wouldn't work out. Maybe next year.
Anyway, I'm so excited about this blog party, and I'm sure you'll all love it. I was considering doing a Robin Hood week completely devoted to the BBC show, but not all my readers have seen it, and I really love the books and other film adaptions, so this blog party will focus on different adaptions and such. Although there will be a huge amount of BBC Robin Hood posts ;)
Now, the reason I'm promoting this so early is because there's going to be a writing contest as one of the events, and I thought you guys would want to have a fair notice, so you can write and edit your entries. There's only a few rules, the main two being that your entry has to be between 50 and 5,000 words and it has to be clean. You can write a poem/ballad, a re-telling of a Robin Hood story, or even a bit of fan-fiction. Just so long as it's Robin Hood related. You can start writing now, but I will not be accepting any entries until the contest officially starts in November.
I've made up three buttons that you can put up on your blog sidebar to spread the word about this upcoming blog event. Let me know if the HTML doesn't work and I'll see if I can fix it.
As for the 'farewell' part of this post title, I'm going to be away for about a week, and although I'll still be able to moderate/answer comments, there will be no new posts because I didn't get any scheduled (I really should have, but the time got away from me). However, here a list of posts I hope to write when I get back - besides the ones for Robin Hood Week, of course.
- Rigoletto film review
- Finish up the 30 Songs blog series
- My Les Miserables live experience (no, I haven't gone yet, but I will in just a week)
- My new writing project
- Queen Mother review
Are you excited about the Robin Hood Week blog party? Do you have any ideas for posts that you'd like to see on this blog?
