KSM - Ready for summer?

Happy Memorial Day, y'all!
Hope you took a moment to remember wars past and present and all the soldiers who fought and are still fighting to protect our freedom!


In blogging news!
I've been doing Kick Start Monday forever so I figured I'd give it a logo =)

Summer is just about here and that means it's fun time! Jaycee and Victoria have put together a cute blog hop. I will be gathering data again from the survey questions to see what kind of man you all like your MCs to be. Check it out!

Have you heard about Camp Nanowrimo? I loved camp as a kid and combining writing with friendly support in the summer sounds awesome to me! There's a session in June, but I'm doing the August session. This is perfect for me because November is way too short and busy. In August, I should be able to get some writing done during football practice before school starts back up. Never done a Nanowrimo before, but I do well with deadlines and have two new wip's to choose from...Think about it!

I like your logo!
I think I'm doing BunMo in June. Guess I better decide soon, huh?

I'm doing Camp NaNo this June (I did it last year in July) and I'm looking forward to it. I guess I'm kinda going the Rebel route since it's an idea I worked on last Camp AND last NaNo. Maybe this time will be the charm? :)

Good luck!

I like the logo, too although the Scout leader in me has a problem with the adorable puppy standing on the American flag. (Proper use of the flag and all that.)

Good luck with the NaNo Camp.

Tara Tyler said...

i am hoping thats a prop, like a tablecloth, not an actual flag!

no disrespect intended!

Candilynn Fite said...

I'm sure it's just a strip of material, not a flag.

Oooh, just what I need. Motivation. I'm signing up. Maybe not in June, but in July and August, I'm there!

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Yay! Thanks for the blog hop shout out! Love your logo!

Donna B. McNicol said...

I signed up for CampNaNoWriMo in August...my first time ever. Eeeep!! I'm already following the camp on Twitter and finding blogs with tips.

Dana said...

I wanted to do the June session, but it looks like August will be the one. See you there!

Lynn Proctor said...

that camp sounds great!

Annalisa Crawford said...

I love the logo!

As for doing any kind of intensive writing - something weird would always crop up to stop me. I might have to do an unofficial month at some point, just to get my new project off the ground.

Tyrean Martinson said...

I like the whole idea of Camp NaNoWriMo in August, but it depends on where I'm at in revision land . ..

Kyra Lennon said...

Not really sure how I missed this post yesterday! Yay for Camp NaNo, but I wish there were more people I know doing it in June lol!

Heather M. Gardner said...

Cute puppy picture.

And the KSM logo is great!

I'm going to be in strict edit mode shortly followed by the waiting game as I hand it off to my 'editor' peeps. Nail biting time.

This fall will be my first year with football practice. I'm excited and nervous!

Love all the NaNo stuff... I did it last November, and am still burned out from it, LOL! So... I think I'll wait again til November to go all crazy again! :D

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Great logo. Cute memorial day image too. I am always impressed with anyone who achieves Nano. Go for it!

Samantha said...

I'm actually going to attempt to do NaNo this year. Pray for me. Ha! :)

Christine Rains said...

Great logo! You'll have great fun with NaNoWriMo. I've considered doing it next month or in August. It would be easier time-wise for me, but I've been doing it for years in November. It's a bit of an annual tradition for me.

michelle said...

That's a cute logo!
You're getting ready for summer... I'm preparing for winter!
Enjoy your camp NaNo...

M Pax said...

Very snazzy logo. Nice. Happy Memorial Day to you. August would be a better month for a write-a-thon for me, too. I sure could us a batch of that to try to get my 4th release out this year.

Tara Tyler said...

Alex, what is BunMo?

Madeline M-S, Kyra - good luck with June camp!

Candilynn, Donna, Dana, Tyrean, Christine, Mary - yeah for August camp!

Jaycee - welcome! looks like fun!

Lynn - hope it's more fun than stress!

Annalisa - I tried that once, no accountability for me = distractions won

Heather - I hope it's not as intense as ours, 1 month, 4 days/wk, 2 hrs/day in broiling July and August - brutal!

Morgan - so you need a full year to recoup? I'm scared!

Madeline - me too, hope I can do it!

Samantha - good luck!

Mish - love that you are on opposite side of world! thanks for reminding me!
