KSM - back in business

It's a new year and there are several blog hops, contests, and challenges coming up.
  • I am inviting you to join Auntie Tara's Short Story minute. I will post my first prompt tomorrow! If it strikes you and you have time, I'd love to hear your story!
  • Do you know Abby Fowers? She is a wonderful gal who writes children's fiction and supports everyone she meets! Well, don't get too excited because she's closing down her blog =( BUT, that is because she made a new blog under her new pseudonymn, Leigh Covington! And to celebrate her rebirth, she is having a contest - check it out!
  • And thanks to Angie and "Cassie Mae" for offering the "I'm hearing voices" blogfest - it will build character! (groan)





  • Many of you know about the "It's getting hot in here" blogfest. I'm not the best at romance writing, but I just edited a funny romantic scene, so I may just have to do that!

  • PreviewAnd the A to Z blogfest in April has a bunch of new hosts and hostesses this year. Stop by the dedicated site to find out more =) I like this fest because I meet so many new people and it gives me inspiration all month!
Got more? Tell me about it!
Keep writing!

Thanks for all the info, Tara. I'd really like to participate in some of these things this year.

I mentioned Cassie's romance blogfest today along with several other big blog happenings this week. Glad you're excited about the Challenge!

I think the A2Z is the only one I can handle. Writing an entire story requires too much creativity...the best I can do is a four sentance blog. Look forward to reading others, though.

Ooh, how exciting! I will certainly be over for Auntie Tara's Short Story minute. Sounds like lots of fun.

As far as your buy a book poll on the side --- I actually look into a book from the cover, but buy it by opening it up to random pages in the middle to see if I like the writing. I don't trust first pages and I don't want to read the cover blurb in case it gives away too much of the story, so I head straight to the middle. :)

A lot of exciting events happening. I'm looking at the A to Z blogfest. That one sounds like a big challenge for me. But I think I can give it a try.

Christine Rains said...

So much going on! Thanks for the links. I can't wait for the A to Z Challenge.

Heather M. Gardner said...

I'll be back tomorrow to see what you've got!

Ruth Josse said...

I hadn't heard about the last two contests, so thanks!

Emily R. King said...

The blogfests are going to rock!

Theresa Milstein said...

Thanks for all these links!

I think the A to Z Challenge would kill me, but I love reading what people come up with.

Peggy Eddleman said...

SO many great links! I love it.

Krista M said...

Those are some great links. Thanks for sharing them! Also, I like your new background. Very fitting for the weather!

Jessie Humphries said...

Thanks for the links. I feel lost in the contests sometimes.

I'm considering doing the character blogfest...not sure, though. I think I'll do the A-Z challenge again this year, if I can figure out what my theme is! Last year I wrote letters to characters, ideas, etc....but it was so much fun and I met so many awesome people; I don't want to miss out this year.

Yay! Thanks for spreading the word :) Lots of fun stuff happening :)
