#RBWL Fall 2014 Recap

Whoosh! Hallelujah, praise the Lord, it’s over. #RBWL was this past Friday. To tell the truth, I was dragging my feet over this round of the Wishlist. I didn’t want to do it, I didn’t want to let it suck up my day, I didn’t want to promote it… I think a big part of the problem was I was concerned that people were getting tired of the hashtag. I didn’t want to bore anyone or bother their timelines, but after several people asked me specifically when #RBWL was coming back, well…

And you know what? I can’t speak for you all, but I had a blast. Old faces and new faces joined in and seemed to enjoy themselves, and several people said they were gleaning NaNo inspiration, which is just what I wanted.

Here are just a few of some of my favorite tweets (not including my own):

In case any of you were wondering, yes, the #RBWL Archives are still a thing, even though they haven’t been updated for ages. That’s part of my “Need to do someday” list. Sigh.

Also, I’ve decided that #RBWL will be scaled down to an annual event rather than a semi-annual event. I’m worried that people will just regurgitate old wishes if we keep to the October/April format, and #RBWL seems more useful just before NaNoWriMo anyways.

So thank you all for turning out on Friday, thank you for celebrating books and the wonderful stories and characters inside them, and thank you for continuing to strive for something more. See you all next year!

    Some of these are super great! They would be fun NaNoWriMo topics!

    It truly pleases me that a lot of people like my Cell Block Tango idea! I’m actually thinking of attempting to do it for NaNo – wish me luck!
