I love Thursdays. Why? Because it's almost Friday.
Oh, yeah, and because this is the day I round up some of the fun stuff in the blogosphere that I saw this week (that I remember, which is the tough part).
First of all, Crossed Genres magazine had the amazing idea to have writers and artists share their work while soliciting donations for Haiti. I'm thinking about what I could share, but in the meantime, check out their blog about it. Whether or not you're going to share your work, you might want to check out the stories & art already posted and donate to one of the causes.
Jane Austen reading challenge over on Haley's blog, because I'm already pretty busy, but it's Jane Austen and I luvses her. Also, I already have Lady Vernon and Her Daughter: A Novel of Jane Austen's Lady Susan sitting on my stack of library books, and I can re-read Emma an approximately infinite number of times. We'll see. The idea is to read not just some of Austen's works (at varying levels) but some re-writes/prequels/sequels/spoofs as well. How fun is that?
Check out the contest on Stephanie's blog. It's her first contest, and she is offering the always-sweet prize of an Amazon gift card. In celebration of her forthcoming book, she's asking you enter by a) becoming a follower and b) sharing your karma moment... so go over there and enter her contest. Be sure to follow Stephanie too; she always has something interesting up on her journey to publication!
For anyone else who enjoys reviewing books on their blog, I recommend The Top 20 Most Annoying Book Reviewer Cliches. Are you guilty?
Happy writing this week everyone!
