Sunday Funday (21)

I am so behind on blogging! I'm trying to finish my WIP so that I can start querying by July (eek!) which is actually a lot closer then I realized (three months!! double eek!) and I'm also really behind on some other things, including crit reading, because some data got shifted around in The Great Mac Switch of 2010. So I've been focusing on writing and reading and making excuses have therefore been ignoring my blog. Sorry. I'll try to remedy that, because I know you all care very, very much about it. In fact, I am planning a VLOG this week, to show off my new haircut and let you all hear what a girl born in Jersey and raised in Florida sounds like (hint: a fast-talker who pronounces half her words wrong, according to her grandmother.)

Anyway, happy Sunday Funday! Here are some great links from around the blogging world:

Do you remember when I said Shannon Messenger had an amazing agent? Well, because she's fabulous, she's celebrating by giving away some books from her agent-mates!

The multi-talented Weronika Janczuk (who also played the best April Fools' Joke of the day) got an email from an aspiring 13-year-old writer looking for advice. Weronika responded, then shared her response on her blog - full of advice, no matter what the stage of writing you're in.

Anne Riley is the kind of girl who will take a grasshopper out of a stranger's hair. Unfortunately, she can't spot the grasshoppers in her own manuscript - which is why her crit partners are so important. Can you find your own grasshoppers?

Rachel Hawkins, who I love endlessly, did an FAQ on her blog!

Ever wonder what all those crazy definitions in the publishing world mean? Editorial Anonymous has a little dictionary to explain them all

That's all for this week! Feel free to post your favorites in the comments.

P.S. Happy Easter, everyone!


  1. Oh, nice wrap up! And welcome back to the bloggie world. I've taken quite a break myself. I think it's perfectly acceptable to take some time to make writing a priority. Good luck with your WIP. July will be here before you know it!

  2. Thanks for sharing the links, and happy Easter!

  3. Happy Easter! I love all these links: very awesome and illuminating and useful. Thank you!

    Good luck with your WiP. :)

  4. You are a fast talker, but I think your pronunciation is just fine. Grandma just refuses to admit she can't hear any more and we cannot persuade her to get her hearing checked and get hearing aids!

  5. I make a lot of excuses too. Then I play games on Facebook. So don't even give it a second though that you're actually writing and stuff. :)


Loved it? Hated it? Either way, I want to hear what you thought!
