Woohoo! It's Friday!
Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I think we're going to see the Muppet Movie. We ended up not going to the movies last weekend because Boy 2 got sick.
This week was kind of exciting on the writerly front.
I've entered Finding Meara in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards, and it made it into Round Two. It's just the first step, but being chosen out of 10,000 entries is pretty exciting, none the less. In Round One the book pitch was judged. In Round Two a 3,000 - 5,000 word excerpt is judged, and the contestants are whittled from 400 in each category to (I believe) 100. So, I'd appreciate any positive thoughts and energies and good luck you want to send my way!
If you're looking for free, quality poetry or a great free novel (wink, wink) this is the weekend for you!
Poetry - My editor, David Malone, is also an accomplished poet who even has had a twitter poem on National Public Radio's Tell Me More. He currently has his works up on his website, davemalone.net for free download. I love how his word choice evokes the sense of surreal nature with a twist.
Novel - Yeah, it's just me. I'm almost done with this go-round of Amazon Prime, and still have some free days to use up, so Finding Meara is going free this weekend. I marked it up to $3.99 several weeks ago, so if you can think of someone who might enjoy the story, this is the weekend to share the news!
Last week's favorite photo was:
Here's the new ones!
|Only to be seen in shadow.|
|Yes, I would, because it took me close to a minute to find it when the picture was small.|
|Bill and Ted of the insect world.|
|They perform an important doggy service - demon removal. The dog in the pic above needs to come here.|
|All I could see for the longest time was the aliens with tiny antennae.|
Our pun this week:
My favorite was the exorcism picture. Totally hit my funny bone.
What's your favorite?
Have a great weekend!
