#IGWritersMay is an Instagram hashtag for writers to share their tips and experiences throughout the month, focusing on one topic each day. Created by Cheyanne Young (Instagram @NormalChey), YA author who's working on The Last Wish of Sasha Cade coming Fall 2018.
For Day 5, "Cinco De Mayo," authors and writers around the world are supposed to share how they are writing and toasting to Mexico victory over France in May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. It'll involve tequila or Coronas. While I didn't get to join my compadres in their stupor, I stayed up late throughout the weekend nights trying to figure out how to do HTML on WordPress using their Premium Templates. I maybe slept a total of 8 hours that weekend. Here's my social media post for Day 5:
"Catching up with #IGWritersMay to share #writerslife . Day 5's topic is Cinco De Mayo. Crazy how the day is a remembrance of a massacre. Cheers to that. Oh and by the way, I didn't get to hangout. I was too busy building my #author website lol. Sigh. • #writersofinstagram #amwriting#authorsofinstagram #writingcommunity#bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd#bookaholic #SciFi #booklove"
