Friday Fun

So, my lovelies, what's fun about this Friday? Lots of cool stuff to report!

I won a contest this week! Over on Eleana Johnson's blog, and I'm totally excited!

AND I hit 30 followers this week! You guys are awesome, that's the truth.

All of this excitement makes me want to have a contest of my own. Then I'll have an excuse to use a bunch more of these - !!!!!

Tell ya what, I'll start scheming, planning, begging, and whatever else it takes to come up with some cool prizes. And when I hit 50 followers, we'll have that contest, oh yes we will!


For now, I'll leave you with some of those inspirational quotes I mentioned in Tuesday's post.


Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow

The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath

Substitute "damn" every time you're inclined to write "very;" your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain

I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent re-writer. ~James Michener

Writing is physical work. It's sweaty work. You just can't will yourself to become a good writer. You really have to work at it. ~Will Haygood

A writer never has a vacation. For a writer life consists of either writing or thinking about writing. ~Eugene Ionesco

Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position. ~Stephen King

We do not write because we want to; we write because we have to. ~Somerset Maugham

Being a good writer is 3% talent, 97% not being distracted by the Internet. ~Anonymous

Truer words have never been spoken! So now I don't feel strange for hearing my characters' conversations in my head.

Wandered over here from kidlit.com. I love your 12 and 1/2 rules of writing. And that last quote, from Anonymous, is SPOT-ON:)
