Contests and awards.

Thanks for all your comments yesterday.  It made me feel a little less paranoid. Today, I will try and be brief. I have almost finished revising my first three chapters so I must go and finish that today and I have some critiquing to do.  Don't forget to get over to Roni at Fiction Groupie for the Beta Club--open critique.

Falen Forms Fiction-100 followers contest.  Writing contest.  Three winners will be picked for some great prizes.  Ends 3/29.

Next, I have questions from my blog post last week from Jennifer Shirk -Me, My Muse and I

How long have you been writing? 10 years

Do you belong to a critique group? Yes.  All of my CPs are awesome.

Are you agented, and if not, who is/are your dream agent/agents? I do not have an agent but would love one. I do not have any dream agent/agents at the moment.

What's the best YA book you've recently read? hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.  ohhh Patch :)

Are you really sure you don't like coffee? :) Oh yes I do not like coffee.  I don't like the smell or the taste of it.  I am a wacky gal.  I do love tea and hot chocolate.

Thanks Jennifer for the questions:)

Melissa from Chasing Dreams asked : What will you be doing in five years? I hope to be writing and hopefully have an agent.

I received (2) awards last week so I am going to hand those out.

Thanks to Talli Roland (Who is super sweet) for the Sugar Doll Award.  I love sweet things that is for sure.

I have to give this to five people:

Thanks To Susan Fields for the Prolific Blogger Award. Its inscription, "By definition, a prolific blogger 'is one who is intellectually productive...keeping up an active blog that is filled with enjoyable content.'" I didn't know I did this but I am glad you think I do.
I pass this on to four people.

 I also got tagged to make a boyfriend book by Jen at Uneditied.  I will do this on another post. I am taking my time on it. :)

Have a great day folks!

  13. Heya! The Soulmates Award was just created on March 21st as a sort of social experiment by me to see how far it goes, but I can't keep track if things go astray, so I've been laboriously tracking down recipients (hopefully before they post) to let them know the correct address to link back to is at my blog:


    Thanks so much!
