It's my weekly warm and fuzzies! Sometimes it'll be harder than others, but in the span of a week there's bound to be something good that happened in our book/writing adventures. And if not, we can always build on the positivity of the people around us, so don't forget to share your happy news too!
Two writing-type things I have to smile about this week: First, thirty-two followers, thanks guys :) :) and second and most exciting (for me at least), I finished plotting and started writing, and I'm fifty pages into my third novel! Don't be too impressed by the fast word count, it's crazy-rough but when I feel the flow I let it carry me... next week who knows, right?
Thanks to those who shared their great news last week! I'm excited to report that Danni's interview with Christine Feehan (one of her all-time favorite authors) was fabulous at Romantic Harbor... read it HERE. I'm also happy to share Alison's fantastic interview with Jocelynn Drake at The Book Bundle... read that one HERE. I do live vicariously through the joys of others so if you have any good/happy/wonderful news let's hear it!
Before I go I'll share a tidbit about me that will likely come as no surprise to anyone. I like playing writing games (writing "exercises" on my fancy days). Most of the time I make them up while driving the kids to karate or if I have to do the Terrible Ironing (I may someday blog about the Terrible Ironing but this is supposed to be a POSITIVE blog). The Literary Girls have a fun writing game ("exercise") and you can check it out HERE if you're weird like me. Below you'll find the game-type way I started today's blog, mostly thanks to an Orbitz commercial that came on when I was adding the links (what IS that actor's name again??). I put it at the end because I figure most people will have stopped reading by now and it's very corny, but it's all about having fun!
Blogger's Log: Day 24
Things seem to be going well since beginning my voyage into cyberspace. I've amassed a crew of thirty-two followers, many of whom are willing to communicate. I also follow others on their journeys and am gaining much insight into strange new worlds. Some of these fellow explorers have banded together in a sort of community and I believe I have been accepted into their society. Others have offered me ritualistic awards with tasks to complete and I must admit I find these customs gratifying. It seems my initial concerns over being hunted by cyber-trolls may be unwarranted. Time will tell and I will remain vigilant.
