#AbouttheAuthorAugust Returns!

Today I’m excited to announce all the details for this year’s About the Author August! This will be the third year of this little event, and I always have so much fun reading about everyone’s writing journeys and projects.

This year, the prompts will be available in their usual Instagram challenge format and in blog post form! I also wanted to make the prompts more flexible so participants don’t have to post every day if they don’t want to, and can instead mix-and-match the prompts within each week! Both the IG and blog versions are set up for three weeks, but if you wanted to bundle all the questions together into one big blog post, you could also do that—or just mix and match the prompts you like best! I’ll be making a linkup post for that in August.

If you’re participating on Instagram, don’t forget to use the hashtag! You can follow me @jamesonthewriter for updates about #AbouttheAuthorAugust too.
