Christine's Journey for all the Journey Support. (What a sweetheart! And if you haven't read her Warrant post yet from today then get over there and read it. It's so clever!) I'm passing this award to all of you who support me and everyone else on our writing journeys.
It doesn't matter if we're published or unpublished, agented or seeking representation, selling our books or struggling to get the word out, with a finished project or just starting out on the journey of writer. It's a fabulous road to take and I only wish this blogging community had been around early on in my career. I know I would have made a lot more progress faster. As it is, so many years passed from when I started writing for publication until I published my first book, that now I feel pressured to make up for lost time. I'm obsessed to write more and more. (Massive guilt when not writing.) But that pressure doesn't stop me from blogging because here is where I feel all the support I need to keep going.
Welcome to all the new followers! I haven't had a chance to visit your blogs yet but I will. And if you leave a comment then I will find you faster and go follow your blogs too! Since we have a long weekend coming up, I doubt if I'll hit the 250 mark on followers. But if I do, then there will be TWO winners for the Pay it Forward Contest. Two opportunities to have your first three chapters and query letter reviewed. Two chances to have me buy your book and review it on my blog. Or to win the Borders gift card. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed! And you can still enter! Rules --or how to get lots of points so you can win--are here.
Either way, I'm so excited for next week when I get to pick a winner! (Or two winners!)
Have a great weekend! I'll see you back on June 1 with the lucky winner announcement!!
