I haven't seen anyone post to start a "chain" for March and since it's my birthday month (and yes, I take the entire month to celebrate getting old) I figure, I could try my hand at organizing it. :)

So ... using what we've learned and tweaking a bit ...

Start date: March 5 (plenty of time to join in the fun!)
End date : March 31

Topic: Growing Up
(Ok, if you hate that topic, just tell me and we'll figure out a new one ... but since we ALL grow old, but not all of us grow up, why don't we talk about it? I think some of us grow old/up better than others, right? ;) )

Rules:
You have 2 days to do your post. Feel free to pre-write yours and post it when it's your turn -- but do hold it for your turn so those reading can go one by one. Please paste the direct link to your post (not your blog) in this thread when you have written it and PM the next person in line. If the person before you hasn't written their post in 2 days, then just go ahead and submit yours.

Please include links to all the participants' blogs in your post. Please also mention and link directly to the person before you and person after you within your post in your in your post.

Please comments on as many posts as possible. The purpose of the chain is to encourage reading one another's blog, and it's nice to know when someone has read it. :)

Cool! Thanks for stepping up to do this Aimee. I was just thinking of doing it this AM but I happily defer to your birthday month claim and jump on it. I like the topic very much.

Oh, and I'm in.

Anyone else want to play? :) March is nearly upon us ... shall we start on March 5th and give everyone one more week to join in the fun?

As far as I can tell, having the start at March 5 seems to be the original schedule, or at least the first one. I'm totally okay with that, and giving folks the opportunity to join between now and then. Since it is a short chain (so far) I personally have no objection to folks joining the chain after it has begun--but as with February, we need a bit of oversight to make sure we keep to schedule.

I am happy to provide that oversight and happy to get us started on the 5th and or to be the "end".

Simran ... I have added you! :) Thanks for playing!

Let's start on the 5th ... that'll give us 3 weeks and everyone CAN (I say can but don't have to) pre-write and hold their posts. :)

*waves* Ok, so I've been out of the AW Blog Chain for an age but I thought it was well past time to come back. I'd love to be involved this month Aimee and thanks for putting it together.

I think "Growing Up" is a great topic and I'm looking forward to thinking up how I can spin a writerly hook for Writer's Round-About ( http://www.writersroundabout.com ).
My heads already storming with ideas. :)
