I Have a Secret…

I should say, I have a BIG secret and it has to do with the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest. It’s the reason I haven’t been able to announce the start date for the fest until today.

The reason? I have a website! and I’m incredibly excited about this. 🙂

The site will launch Oct. 24th which will coinside with the beginning of the fest. Mark your calendars because that there is your official start date!

If you haven’t signed up yet, go here. For those of you who are signed up, feel free to help spread the word. Keep track of any tweets (one point) or mentions on your blog (five points). I’m leaving this to the honesty policy because I know it’s a pain to keep track of those links. In the first week of the fest, write how many points you have and I’ll add that into the drawing to win one of my neat handmade journals. If you’re not sure about these journals, go ask Misty. She just got one this week.

So, spread the word, keep track of your points and I can’t wait to get the blogfest started!

p.s. I promise I’ll get all caught up on blogs etc. this week I really am sorry I’ve been out of the loop :-/

p.p.s. Go vote for my ponies on Rebecca Enzor’s blog – they need some more votes!

Back to the Real World

Weddings, don’t you love them?

Wedding Day

Isn’t she gorgeous? Seriously, these two are amazing. 🙂

Hair Dos

I love getting my hair done!

Bridesmaid Fun

Why the wedding pictures, you ask? I was back home for the past five days to go to one of my very best friend’s wedding. It was amazing and incredibly beautiful. *sigh*

Sorry to be out of the loop, folks, but I swear, I’m back to the real world now.  I’m hoping Wednesday I’ll get a post out with more info Warm Fuzzies Blogfest, such as when it’s actually going to start. 😉

Hope you all had as fun of a weekend as I did!

Crafty Me

I love crafts. I love being crafty…or at least, attempting to be crafty.

I told you guys I had a super secret awesome prize each week of the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest (if you want more info and to sign up, go here) and I’m finally ready to post a picture of it! I hope y’all like this because I’ve had fun making it.

Handmade Journal

Warm Fuzzies Blogfest Prize!

Yes yes, it’s a hand-made, home-bound journal! I had a ton of fun making this one and can’t wait to get started on the others. If you want to win one of these babies, be sure to go to follow the link above and sign up for the fest!

For those of you wondering, I followed the easy instructions here . I’ve had some people ask if I could post pictures of the process of putting it together and I think I’ll do that later this week. 🙂

Since the blogfest is coming up in the next couple weeks, I’ll be sure to post a more indepth article on what we’ll be doing sometime very, very soon.

It’s All About Pictures, Y’all

I have been thinking recently about how much we put out there concerning our WIPs. I know a variety of writers who feel completely alright sharing any and all writing online and others who never talk about their WIPs.

I’ve always been okay posting my writing, but not with this most recent WIP. The best way I can put it is that I’m possessive over it. I’m keeping this very close to my heart and am hesitant to put anything about it online.

Because of this, I’ve had the idea that one of the weeks during the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest won’t require you to put up a query/pitch/excerpt/summary of your WIP – none of that. Instead, it’ll be all about pictures or music, your choice. I know that a lot of you keep folders of pictures and/or music that remind you of your WIP. So, start collecting and picking out the pieces you love most to showcase them during the fest.

If you still haven’t signed up, go here and leave your e-mail. Of course, you’re free to just jump in each of the weeks, also.

And, what do you think? Do you feel okay sharing your WIP online? I’m really curious to see what you think. 🙂

Warm Fuzzies!

Details, details, because I know that’s what you’re looking for. 😉

Warm Fuzzies Blog Fest

What is the Warm Fuzzies Blogfest? First and foremost, it’s a celebration of who we are as writers! We all have doubts and moments where we struggle with our writing. Come join this blogfest for a pick me up and to connect with other writers who totally get it. Push aside the worries and focus on how awesome we all are. 😀

How will the blogfest work? There are four weeks during the fest. Each week there will be a different theme and prize. I’m still working out the kinks for the weekly contests and prizes but here are a few hints:

  • How are our characters like us? Often, as writers, we get kicked when we’re down. A query will be rejected at the same time as we encounter writers block or we’ll lose a contest at the same time as getting back a negative critique. This week we’ll get a few laughs by how bad our MC’s have it. Because when we really look at it, being a writer really isn’t that bad- at least we’re not them 😉
  • Did you make friends today? Just like in kindergarden, we’ll make new friends! One week will be super interactive. You’ll connect with other writers and write a creative piece of flash fiction together.
  • What have you written that’s given you the warm fuzzies? Everybody has a scene they’ve written that’s given them the happy buzz. What’s yours? We’ll share our favorite moments in writing and celebrate how when it’s good, it’s reeeaaally good.

As for prizes, among others, I have a 30-page edit from an editor, a full blog makeover, and an artist who’s up for creating a personalized illustration for your Warm Fuzzy scene for you. There’s also a super secret prize lined up for each week.

So, how do you sign up? Stick your email in a comment on this post. That way I’ll be able to shoot you an e-mail the week and day before the contest as a reminder.

*Tentative start date is Monday, October 17th.

(P.S. You guys cracked me up on the last post! I’m still keeping my WIP a secret, but I’ll let you know that yes, it does take place in the desert and yes there are dogs. 😉
