Why do we write? When someone asked this to Isaac Aminov he said that ‘I write for the same reason I breathe – because if I didn’t, I would die’. Writing for the love of writing is a form of unconditional love. A true writer writes from the heart and a great writer writes for nothing but to express love for writing. We want you to continue, what you have always loved doing. Keeping that in mind, we are happy to announce a brand new initiative at BlogAdda, Write Over the Weekend (WOW)!
UPDATE: The theme for the current week has been announced here. Please submit your entries in that post.
With social media taking over our lives, do you feel your blog is not getting all the attention it deserves? Are you one of those who want to write, but are either spoiled for choices or having nothing that is inspiring you to write? We, at BlogAdda, understand just that and thus decide to bring to you an initiative that you shall await just as eagerly as you await weekends.
We are very happy to announce a brand new initiative at your Adda which will rekindle your love for writing again. Presenting to you ‘WOW – Write Over the Weekend’.
What is WOW?
Write Over the Weekend (WOW). As the name suggests, we at BlogAdda want to rekindle your love for writing. We want you to continue writing just for the love of it. We want to bring your creativity back to the fore. We want the community to know you for your writing and your creativity. It is as simple as that.
WOW! This is exciting. What do I do next?
We want it to be very simple. Every weekend (well, almost), starting from today, we will announce a theme on which you can WOW. You can submit your blogpost links in the comments section below. The best entries will get special badges to flaunt on their blogs. Kindly copy-paste the code below at the start/end of your entry to be a part of this initiative.
This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda
Write Over the Weekend theme for this week
Write a post that has this line, ‘Waking up, now that September has ended’

Oops just realised my entry has no entry :-))). Here it is..
The winning entries from last weekend haven’t been announced and how come there isn’t a new topic for this weekend, why is it still “I wish someone told me..”? We WOW-ed on it last time 🙂
