The Joy of Writing Giveaway & Editing Launch!

January 16, 2017

The Joy of Writing Giveaway (1)

SURPRISE! It’s a giveaway!!

A year ago, I created #WIPjoy as a way for authors to connect, support each other, and rediscover their passion for their WIPs.  Many of you have told me over the past year that #WIPjoy helped you plug into the author community and find enthusiasm again.  That makes me so happy!

Now it’s a new year, and in 2017 I hope to begin helping my fellow authors in a new way – I’m excited to announce that I am now offering my services as a freelance editor! This is something that’s been in development for a few months, and it’s a thrill to finally, officially hang up my shingle. 🙂

To celebrate my new services – and a year of fun with you, awesome #WIPjoy-ers! – a group of wonderful editors and I have come together to hold a giveaway!  Some of us are newer to the field, some of us have years of experience, but ALL of us are excited to give away fun prizes and help you soar in your journey to publication.

Passion and inspiration are one side of the coin.  The other half is the exhaustive, often painful task of refining our passion projects until they are as cohesive, clean of error, and powerful as they can be. I hope #WIPjoy has helped you with the former – maybe one of us can help you with the latter!

Just like every author’s voice is unique, so is every editor’s style and work.  Learn a little about each of us and the prizes we’re offering below, and then scroll down to the Rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of the post!

Six Editors – Over Twenty Prizes!

Author picBethany Jennings

I’ve been writing all my life – ever since I was old enough to pick up a pencil and spell. As an editor, I’m excited to work with authors at all levels, but especially young and new authors who are still finding their voices and dreaming of being published for the first time. I specialize in speculative fiction, and my flash fiction has been published in Havok Magazine and on the Splickety Lightning Blog.

When I’m not writing fiction in the dead of night, I’m chasing after my four adventurous kiddos, eating artistic sandwiches, and enjoying the writerly communities on Facebook and Twitter.

I’m giving away…

  • The Giveaway Grand Prize – a 20-page edit, #WIPjoy poster, and $10 Amazon gift card
  • Two 15 page edits that come with a 20% discount on an editing service of your choice, if you like my work
  • Two beautiful #WIPjoy posters (pictured above in the giveaway graphic)
  • The “Don’t Lose Your #WIPjoy” mug (pictured above in the giveaway graphic)

In (4)


  1. I’ve known about #WIPjoy for about six months and am in LOVE with it! Even though I tend to fall behind, I love being able to think about and answer questions about my beloved WIPs… One of them is in the rewriting phase, one is about to go out to beta readers (!!!!!), and one is being drafted!

    • I’m so glad you’re loving #WIPjoy, Kathryn!! And aaaah, so exciting to get some beta reading! 😀

      Thanks for entering the giveaway! 😀

  2. This is one of the most incredible giveaways I’ve seen! Answering the questions: 1. I’ve known about #WIPjoy since it first started, I think. 2. I’m 2 months and 20k words into my sci-fi WIP. 3. I can’t choose – those are all such amazing prizes! (But I LOVE that poster!) 🙂

  3. I’ve known about #WIPjoy since last… July? I only got in on the last few days of it, but I eagerly awaited the next one and participated every day!

    How far am I in my WIP? About 60k words, before my life got INSANE. But I’m finding a new groove to (hopefully) complete it.

    I’d be thrilled with ANY of the prizes, but I have to say, I’m really coveting that #WIPjoy mug. 😉

    • YAY! I’m glad you love #WIPjoy. 😀 😀 I hope you win the mug then. 😉

  4. This is so exciting! Way to go, Bethany!

  5. I AM SO BEYOND EXCITED!! I’ve been doing WIPjoy since last January and it has helped me SO MUCH in feeling out new and old stories! So happy it’s come this far ^_^

  7. This is so cool! I love how generous and supportive the writing community is!

    • I love that in the writing community too, Lauren! Thank you! 😀

  8. This is so exciting

  9. This is a great giveaway. I don’t have spare body parts, but I’d still give a left arm to win.

    • Hahahaha, that’s a huge price for a writer to pay! Thankfully we won’t charge you that to enter…. Or for our editing services, for that matter. 😉 😀

  10. This is my first year of #WIPjoy and I love it! I love seeing everyone’s responses, and I certainly enjoy being able to share my WIP with others as well. I’m probably about 3/4 through, and certainly do find joy in it 🙂

  12. […] need to visit Bethany Jennings’ blog — THE SIMMERING MIND –and enter there. She’s launching her freelance editing business, and we’re […]

  13. I’m just finishing up Book 2 in my scifi trilogy. Soooo excited. :^)

  14. I followed some, but not all, on Twitter, so this was a chance to catch the others.

    I am in what I hope are final (or at least penultimate?) revisions on THE SONGWEAVER’S VOW, which has been the subject of my last couple WIPjoys.

  15. I entered. 🙂 Don’t have twitter so couldn’t do those. But man, feedback on the first pages of my current WIP would be so awesome! (Tho, I think my favorite is Bethany’s merchandise in my color scheme… 😉

  16. Ooh, this is exciting! 🙂 I heard about #WIPJoy a few months ago, and was eagerly waiting for January to participate in my first one. I’m in the early stages of planning for my next WIP – just finished Draft 4 of my last project, which is currently in the hands of my critique partners/beta readers! I would love to win any of the edits/critiques.

    (One thing to note – the link to Ralene’s Facebook page isn’t working, within the giveaway section… but I was able to visit it through her Twitter links.) Thank you for setting this up!

    • Oooh, thank you for letting me know about the broken link, Sarah! I’ll fix that straightaway!

  17. These are great prizes! I’m revising my WIP, which is terribly hard work. My reward for slugging away at it is posting my tweet and seeing others’ thoughts. Thanks for re-introducing joy to my process.

  18. I’ve heard about #WIPjoy before, but just started this year, and it’s been encouraging to interact with others in the WIP journey. I’ve got one full novel complete and halfway through the second in the series. Would love any and all of these generous giveaways.

  19. This is such a lovely idea! What a fab giveaway. I love reading everyones WIPJoy!

  20. How long have you known about #WIPjoy? Only about a week but I’m hooked!!!!
    How far along are you in your WIP? I am editing the first half of my very first novel.
    Which prizes do you most hope to win?? I’d be thrilled to win any of them!!!!!

    • I hope you continue to enjoy #WIPjoy, Jessica, and that the rest of your WIP goes well for you! 😀

  21. I learned about #WIPjoy on December 31, decided to give it a try, and have been really enjoying the boost!

  22. I am SO excited for you! 😀 What an awesome giveaway. I have to admit I totally wouldn’t mind winning the poster or mug! 😉

  23. My husband would kill me if I won another mug, but I can’t help it! I love writing mugs!!!

    • Hahaha! Wait, should I hope you win the mug or should I hope you DON’T win the mug, for your own safety??

  24. Oh my goodness, this looks so amazing. Thanks to all of you for putting this out, and Bethany– thank you for starting WIPjoy! It really helped me get going on twitter when I joined last June! 😀

    • I’m so glad WIPjoy has helped you, Jeneca! Music to my ears!

  25. Love the giveaway! Thanks, Ladies!

    How long have you known about #WIPjoy? I think I’ve known about it since about July of last year. Something like that.

    How far along are you in your WIP? In the one I’m mentioning for #WIPjoy, I have just over 16,000 words out of a hopeful 50,000 written.

    Which prizes do you most hope to win?? Any of them, really. I’m not picky. 🙂

  26. I learned about #WIPJoy on January 4th and have been playing along ever since. I love interacting with other writers and seeing what their answers are. For the record, I want all the prizes. Each one is awesome and would be amazing to win! Thank you for hosting such a great contest and for creating #WIPJoy!!

    • You’re welcome!! 😀 I’m glad you’ve been enjoying #WIPjoy so far!

  27. I learned about WIP joy this year and I’m participating on Facebook.

  28. Ah, I love the poster! And I may or may not have initially read in Katie Morford’s bio that her fiance IS Cadbury Royal Dark chocolate. XD

    Best wishes in your editing endeavors, Bethany!

    • Hehe, a Freudian slip perhaps? 😀 Dark chocolate is amazing…

      Thank you, Olivia!

  29. I’ve known about #WIPjoy since September I do believe. It’s been a lot of fun and it’s nice having an opportunity to share my WIP and read about everyone else’s. I’m almost at 70,000 words for my current WIP and I only have about 8 chapters left. It’d be awesome to win any of the prizes. This is really great of you all do this and thanks for creating #WIPjoy!

    • I’m glad you’re enjoying #WIPjoy! 😀 Great progress on the WIP – keep at it!! 🙂

  30. I only found out about #WIPjoy as the 2017 challenge started, but I’m really enjoying taking part! thank you for creating it, and for the giveaway.

    Good luck with your editing business! 😀

  31. I would LOVE to get any of these edits! So exciting!

  32. I just learned about #WIPjoy earlier this month. I’ve been working on my WIP for a little over a year. Thank you for this opportunity.

  33. Hey Bethany what a great compilation of giveaways. Thanks!! I’m working on a rewrite of a YA action adventure right now, which had to be totally revamped. I started following #WIPjoy in March 2016 and I love it so much. It has been really, really fun to meet people and to read about others’ WIPs.

    • Woohoo! It’s wonderful to hear that #WIPjoy has been encouraging you. 🙂

  34. As the editor who’s done so much for me, I’d love to win anything you offer, as well as any other editors you recommend! 😀

  35. Here’s hoping you have every success in your new venture, Bethany!!! 🙂

  36. Congrats, Bethany! I love WIPjoy, too! 🙂 And I enjoy reading what others are posting about their WIPs.

  37. Love #WIPjoy. So much fun to read what everyone else is working on!

  38. I just found out about WIPJoy at the end of December and it’s been AWESOME! It’s the best hashtag community I’ve tried so far. Thanks Bethany for organizing and hosting such a great event.

  39. I’ve known about WIPjoy since it began last January! It’s one of my favorite things to join and I love reading about everyone’s stories!

  40. Thank you for starting #WIPJoy. I found it on the third day, and it’s been a blast.

  41. I don’t remember how long I have known about WIPjoy but I have participated at least twice and it has been so helpful when I am feeling demoralized about my work. Gotta keep that positive energy going while I work through those tricky revisions. Thank you for all you do for the writing community and the giveaway, too!

    • My pleasure, Kimberly! I’m glad #WIPjoy has been able to help you! 😀

  42. I learned about #WIPjoy at the beginning of January, and I’ve been having so much fun participating! I am editing my completed manuscript. It’s so good to remind myself of all the things I like about this project while I’m tearing it apart and trying to rebuild. I have a tough time summarizing my own work without giving too much away, so I would love to win one of the back cover blurb critiques.

    • Oooh, excellent! It’s a good time to have some #WIPjoy, then. 😀

      And if you don’t win a blurb critique, please do consider hiring me for my blurb writing!….I LOVE blurbing. Love it desperately. 😀 (More info on my editing services page, but it’s $20. 🙂 )

  43. How exciting! Love all these prizes! I’ve known about WIPJoy since last spring, I believe, and I so love the way it makes me analyze my WIP and read about other writers’ WIPS. So glad you came up with this idea, Bethany! 🙂 <3 Thanks for the chance to win!

  44. So excited for this giveaway. I’m also grateful for finding #WIPjoy – which has allowed me to find great joy in my story and in my characters.

  45. All of the prizes look pretty awesome; seeing my fellow editors at work would be really interesting. But, no lie, the mug is actually the biggest draw. I don’t have any writing themed mugs, and I think it’s about time I fill that gap in my life 😉

    • I’ll say! Gotta have a writing mug! 😀 Thank you for entering, Sarah. 🙂

  46. This is awesome! I’m thrilled for you on this venture. (And I wish I was good enough at editing to even contemplate such an awesome business opportunity) And your giveaway is amazing! Wow!

    • Thank you, Becky!! 😀 I love editing so much…love it more than writing sometimes!

  47. I found out about you guys in December. It’s been fun to be apart of it! I’m about 65,000 words in and plugging along. Thanks for everything!

  48. Those are great prizes. And this is exciting news. My list of editors has grown longer. Also this post is good reference for author blurbs. I’ve got to write a new one this week.

    • Oooh, I’m glad, Anna! 😀 It was definitely fun to see the variety in what everyone gave me for their author/editor blurbs.

  49. #WIPjoy is one of my favorite tweeting events for writers and I’ve been involved since the beginning, I believe. Every day is something different and it actually gives me pause to reflect. I’ve met so many amazing writers and learned about so many excellent stories! Thank you for offering this!

  50. I’ve known about my WIP for about 3 years now. That’s when I switched from criminal Urban Fantasy to YA fantasy with a steampunk twist. I love it so much and I’m excited to use the WIPjoy to share it. There are some great prizes here! Any of the would be wonderful, but the blurb help is probably my greatest need. 🙂

    • Ooooh, I hope you win a blurb help, then! 😀 And if you don’t – you can always hire one of us to help! You know I love blurbing… 😀

  51. This is the first time I’ve stumbled across this giveaway — what a very cool idea! I love the idea of getting re-inspired about the WIP! Thanks for the opportunity.

  52. How long have you known about #WIPjoy?
    I’ve known about it since the very first one! I really enjoy taking part. 🙂

  53. How exciting!!! Congratulations! And, what a neat opportunity!! Thank you!!

  54. Nice giveaway! 1. How long have you known about #WIPjoy? Since the beginning of this year.

    How far along are you in your WIP? Just passed 90,000 words. My expectation was 100k, but I expect now to go over that by about 5,000.

    Which prizes do you most hope to win? The editing and coaching ones would be fantastic. I have not worked with either yet, so either or both would really be so helpful.

    • Oooh, that’s great – you’re nearing the end there! 😀

      Thanks for entering!

  55. This is so great! Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Got my fingers crossed!

  56. Congratulations!!! Wish you the best!

  57. I don’t remember when I first heard about #WIPJoy. I think it is an awesome idea. I tried to participate in it last time (?) But didn’t finish it out. As far as a prize, I don’t know. I’d love some feedback on my current WIP. I’m almost done writing the second first draft, but I’m stuck on the final big battle. 🙂

    • Ahhh, big battles can be so tricky… Thank you for entering! ^_^

  58. I’ve known about #WIPJoy for a few months, but never could participate since I didn’t have a WIP (but I’m starting one now). I’m crossing my fingers for the grand prize, but aren’t we all 😉

    Thanks for the giveaway, as well as for organizing such a great Twitter game!

    • You’re welcome, Rayna! I hope you enjoy #WIPjoy and that your writing goes well. 😀

  59. I actually just found out about #WIPJoy, and this is awesome! Thank you so much for giving us such a great opportunity. 🙂 I’d love to win any of the prizes! Fingers crossed! 🙂

    • Wonderful! If you participate in #WIPjoy I hope you have fun! ?

  60. I can’t believe it’s been a year! It seems like not that long ago when I stumbled across the first month of #WIPjoy. 😀 I’m about 80% finished with my WIP, trying to fill in scenes I skipped or that need editing. It would be incredible to win ANY of the prizes, but the ones that have me most excited are the editing prizes or the manuscript consultations. Thank you for doing this!

    • I’m glad you’re excited about the editing/consultation prizes! 😀 Thanks for entering, Beth – and best wishes with your WIP! 🙂

  61. Soooo many giveaways! O.O (also, I love tracking #WIPjoy on twitter even though I don’t have an account. It’s awesome seeing so many different writers’ ideas, inspiration, and writing style!)

    • Oh, cool, Emily!! Are you on Facebook or Instagram? You can participate on there too, although fewer people do it. 🙂

    • Oops, just realized that the entries on one giveaway item count for all the other thing in the same giveaway package. 😛 If my name is drawn for one of the editing discounts/offers, then would it be possible to redraw another name randomly? I wouldn’t use any of the editing discounts, sadly. 😛

  62. I’ve known about WIPjoy for two months. I made some large revisions after feedback and am ready for more!

  63. Since the first one was hosted? I suck at remembering things, esp dates so I’m so sorry. When was that? Around June/July? I honestly can’t remember but yes, since then!

    I’m only 2,300 words into my first draft (life gets in the way and it sucks) but I’m really loving what I’ve got so far which is a huge bonus! 😀

    I would love to win any of the prizes if I’m honest – though I do really love mugs haha

    • Ooh, I’m glad you’re loving what you have so far! That counts for a lot. 🙂

      Wow, this mug is surprisingly popular…. 😀

  64. This looks super exciting!! 😀

  65. I’m new to #WIPjoy but am really excited to get involved. I’m about half way done with the first draft of my WIP and the idea of some professional input now is amazing. Thanks for this opportunity!

  66. Entered! And I have four kids too.

    • Oh cool! 😀 You understand the daily adventure of having twice as many kids as hands. 😉

  67. I want to win the editing. And I just barely learned about #WIPjoy

  68. […] NOTE: The Giveaway is still ongoing. Click here for information on how to get a chance to have a blurb created by me (or an edit by me or a bunch of other cool editing prizes). […]

  69. I’ve known about #WIPjoy a day or so when it started this year. 🙂

  70. Hi! I’ve known about #WIPjoy since last month, from a mention on Scribophile.

    How far am I in my WIP? About halfway through drafting a sci-fi romance novel. I revise on my own and based on feedback during drafting, so my hope is for a solid story that won’t need a complete rewrite in a few months.

    All of these prizes are nice.

    • Sounds like a good writing process! 🙂 I write pretty cleanly, too…I always hope to not need a complete rewrite when I’m done.

  71. This is such an awesome giveaway! Thanks for putting it together and for running #WIPjoy, Bethany. It definitely inspires me to continue writing when I’ve hit a slump.

  72. I heard about #WIPjoy this year from my friend and fellow writer, Jacqueline Patterson. It’s been a fun way to keep myself motivated, and has opened doors to interest in upcoming projects as well. I’d love to win the poster and Amazon card, who wouldn’t? But any editorial feedback is also helpful.

    • I’m glad you’ve enjoyed #WIPjoy! And hey, I know Jacqueline too! 🙂

  73. This is awesome! Thank you! Loving #WIPjoy. Bethany, I think you’re right up my alley as I’m almost ready to finish and publish my first novel, and am still finding my voice. But the prize I’d want most is definitely the poster – I was told that same thing once and I try to remember it, as it’s something I tend to struggle with. Would be awesome to have a daily reminder of this sage advice on my wall. 🙂

    • Oooh, thank you for keeping me in mind, Kylie! I’d love to take a look at your manuscript when you’re ready for edits. 🙂 I hope you win a poster! 😀

  74. I heard about #WIPjoy back in December from a friend and I’m loving it so far. The WIP I’m tweeting about is Edge of Silence and it’s almost finished! I’m finalizing edits now and will be sending it out to beta reader in a few weeks, while my betas are reading I’m going to be starting on the sequel. I think the prize I would most appreciate is either one of the critiques so I can get some more feedback or the worldbuilding book. I have a lot of world building in Out of Mind.

    • Congrats on finishing up edits, Sarah! That must feel very satisfying. ?

  75. This looks like a supercool giveaway 🙂
    I’ve started #Wipjoy on 1st January, 2017. I have multiple WIPs, but the two ones I’m actively working on are: Londemonium (urban fantasy, 80% ready) and Glasgow, my love (multiple-ending love story 55% ready)
    Aand I love the mug. I know the edits are way cooler and they’re also more useful but I love mugs. I can’t help it 😀

    • Ooh, multiple-ending love story…what does that look like? I’m intrigued!

  76. I first heard about #WIPJoy last year, I believe. It’s very fun and it’s always nice to view your own project from a new/different perspective. I’d be happy with any of the prizes, but I’d most like a manuscript review.

  77. I only just heard about #WIPjoy this January. I’m at the beginning stage of rewriting my NaNoWriMo winning novel. It’s quite the undertaking to clean up 30-days word vomit; but, I really like my story. I’d be interested in either the in-depth critique or editing services.

    • Ooh, nice! I envy authors who are able to word-vomit like that, haha!

  78. I literally discovered #WIPjoy on January 5th or 6th this year. Can’t believe I missed it before!
    I’m about 15k into my current WIP, and I’m open to anything which may help me improve as a writer. I particularly struggle with editing so anything edit-related is especially interesting to me.

    Thanks for running the tag and this giveaway!

    • I’m glad you’ve found our community, KR! 😀 Thanks for entering!

  79. I only found #wipjoy last week, but it’s been a solace through a dreadful month. My WIP is off with an editor, complete at 95k, but I have three more in draft. I’d love some more critique!
    Thank you, Bethany! I love how the writing community finds ways to brighten the year!

    • Aww, I’m glad #WIPjoy has been comforting in a rough time!! And the writing community is such a blessing that way. ^_^

  80. I found out about WIPjoy last year and joined in the middle of a month. I love it! I’m about halfway through my WIP, but know editing wise a lot of what I’ve already written needs to be cut or condensed. My favorite prize is yours, Bethany. Especially the Grand Prize.

    • Oooh, I’m glad you like my prize options! And that you’re enjoying #WIPjoy. 😀

  81. I’ve been aware of it for a few months and just caught up today! My manuscript is done, I’m in the querying stage and moving on to the sequels. I love the poster and the mug the most!

    • Ahh, nice! The querying stage is fun – and nerve-wracking! I wish you success! ^_^

  82. I discovered WIPjoy during the first week of January and it’s been such a blast getting to know other writers on Twitter and their work. I’m currently 40k into my manuscript and hope to finish the draft by March 14. I would love to get some help with editing or feedback!

    Thanks for hosting an awesome hashtag and this fun event!

  83. My first year of doing #WIPJoy and really enjoyed hearing everyone get excited about their projects. Also been recommending it to other writer friends. It’s been a great way to feel part of a community.

    • Aww, yay! Thank you for recommending #WIPjoy! I’m so thankful for the community that has gathered around it. 🙂

  84. Hi everyone! Just found this and am blown away by it. I’ll answer the question though. 🙂 “How far along are you in your WIP?” My current WIP…is written, draft 2.5 coming in at 78k words and being revised and torn to shreds. It’ll be done…it feels like never. Haha. But there you go. I’m almost done with the full MS writing up of critiques. Yay!

    Thank you for doing this giveaway! Great prizes!

    • Ahh, great job finishing draft one! Personally I think that’s sometimes the hardest part. 😛

I love to hear your thoughts!
