Surprise!

I'm 2! And it's a big surprise to me!

Yes, it's my Blogaversary. Anyone know what the gift is to celebrate two years?
Me neither!
*searches*
It's cotton! Woo hoo! cotton candy for everyone!

Blogging has been so fun! I can't believe it's been two years. And I have some other reasons to be excited too:
  • I'm getting close to 500 followers, woot! 
  • I finished my camp nano book, though I didn't get to 50,000 words, yet. But I'm sure with editing I will get there.
  • and best of all! I got a request for a full for POP TRAVEL! My first one! 
What better way to celebrate than to give stuff away?!

How 'bout a couple of books:
Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
or
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
or
A personalized graphic design by me? I've been making buttons and banners for friends and I also do business cards and fun, inspirational covers!

All you have to do is comment and let me know what you'd like. Then I will randomly select winners. EASY! I'll leave it open for a week (9/6)

Thanks for following me around and keeping me going!

I've been having internet meltdown this week (and most of last week)! I have a connection for five minutes and then nothing for the rest of the day! Aaaaah! Anyhow, hope I'm not too late to throw my name in for a chance at a blog banner :)
Happy blogiversary and near 500 followers! Awesome! And I hope Campnano went well :) We'll have to talk swapping chapters soon!

Hi, Tara! Gosh, I feel like it's been forever since I blogged. My eyes are tired of staring at my computer screen from NaNo. Do you know, I hit "The End" last Saturday, too! I scrambled around at first, not really knowing what to do! Then, I decided to open a new document, and go through my beat sheet. One by one, I wrote scenes, I either forgot about, felt I needed to add in, and scenes between my characters to assist with my story motioning forward.

FABULOUS news on Pop Travel, I can't wait to begin my reading now that NaNo is over. I don't know about you, but I only opened writing craft books during August. I feel not only sleep deprived, but reading deprived as well. I know you got a full request, but I'd still like to give it a read.:)

Kim said...

Oh, Tara, congratulations!!! Two years is a big landmark. And YEAH for getting a request for full!!! That is uber exciting :)

Tara Tyler said...

candilynn, yay for finishing! a req is not rep, thx for reading!
