You're being subjected to one of my random update posts again. Indulge me, it helps me keep track of things.
Pay It Forward
First up, I'm participating in the Pay It Forward blogfest hosted by Matthew at QQUE. A big thank you to Ladonna Watkins over at Sweet Feat 400 who tagged me.
The goal: Here is how the blogfest will actually work: The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else. We want this to be an easy post that allows you to meet and follow as many other bloggers as you can. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading, but that you suspect may fly under the radar of a lot of other bloggers. Or they can be famous blogs, as long as they're awesome.
I'm going to link to a few I like seeing in my reader. Writers, authors, agents.
Megan at Paws, Fangs, & Smiles
Heidi at ...then she writes
Melissa at Chasing the Dream
Adventures in YA and Children's Publishing
Class of 2k12
If you haven't seen my first Dear Author letter, go check it out. It's my way to say thank you to an author for writing an awesome book. My first letter is written to Karen Marie Moning. There will be more, I like writing these.
On last reminder of my word-of-mouth contest. What should I do with 81 missing-dog flyers? I'll pick a winner on Friday with the help of random org. It's just a silly contest so go crazy with ideas.
I'm just about done prepping for Nano, if I do anymore I won't have any motivation to write the novel. I can't know chapter for chapter what happens. I like suprises. I've posted two entries about how I prep for a novel. If you're interested, you can read about them. NaNoWriMo Prep + Story vs Plot & Meet Mike - How I Flesh Out My Characters.
