Theresa Milstein at Substitute Teacher's Saga is having a Halloween Haunting, for anyone wanting to make some new blog friends. I'm always up for finding new blogs to feed my addiction, aren't you? Plus she made it easy, which I like.
Make a comment and go haunt some new blogs, and if you spread the word you can win some great books. The rules are so easy that even those gearing up for NaNoWriMo and stressing out about it can do it-- leave a comment telling about your blog and if you are looking for a critique partner. Then go visit the other commenters new to you. Go blog trick or treating lol!
And for those of you planning on writing a novel in November, this cute guy may help you not stress out so much.
He's the awesome design of Michelle Gregory over at Beautiful Chaos. He's going on my sidebar for the month and whenever I feel like giving up on my new November novel, I will look at him and smile. He and my giraffe are buddies. In fact I'm feeling less anxiety about NaNoWriMo just looking at his cute face.
