Seriously... People Rock

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for making my very first blogfest such a successful one! You guys were amazing!

I was fortunate enough to read some of your very special stories, those snippets that you've been revising for quite sometime and those who were brand new trying it out for size.

You allowed everyone to guess even though the character you envisioned could have been entirely different and rather than sticking your head in the sand you laughed along with the rest of us on what people guessed!

I had a ton of fun, and if another creative idea pops into my head you bet I'll be posting all about it and I hope you'll join me in another awesome blog fest!!!

So for those who have yet to see all that is awesome here is Part One, Part Two, and the Participants.

Next blog fest I'm joining in on is Emily White's Fairy Tale Blogfest on August 30th, it's going to be wild!!!

On even MORE exciting news I wanted to tell you about my good friend Jessica over at The Alliterative Allomorph! She is holding an amazing contest built just for writers, published and unpublished! You'd be donating to an AMAZING cause and along the way set yourself up for some AMAZING prizes!!! Trust me, it's worth a look-see!

So bounce around the blogosphere and make sure you stop by all the awesome!!! Make sure to check out my sidebar for all the other awesome giveaways around town!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

I really loved this idea and while I did not enter your contest I kinda borrowed it to spark some creativity at Inkwell. I hope you don't mind! I did mention your blog:)

Hi,

Absolutely Jen, you provided and we all had a great masked ball!

Shall keep an eye out for another blogfest, they're gonna be getting thin on the ground soon. Though having said that, there is Dawn's Word Painting blogfest coming up. Can't remember the url off hand, but the banner is on my blog. It's a blogfest about descriptive writing - painting pictures with words!

Be nice to see someone host a "killer" blogfest - everyone having to write from the killer's POV, not necessarily human! ;)

Congrats on the blogfest! And I'm going to go check out AA's contest, always up for a good cause.

Stopped by to let you know, I just posted an interview with literary agent Laurie McLean on my blog: www.kayemevans.com/blog

She provided awesome info, the most substantive answers I've received from a literary agent. Hope you can check it out!

Also - since you're into blogfests, I thought I'd let you know about my first one that I'm hosting called the September's Back-to-School Daze Blogfest on September 15. Stop by and check it out!
