In honor of the new kids, our first giveaway

We've noticed a bunch of new followers in the past couple of weeks. Welcome to the group. Although participation is not required, we look forward to hearing what you have to say!

To encourage the spirit of writing that is the reason we're all here, I'm giving away a moleskine notebook. Writers should always carry notebooks, right?

To enter the drawing, leave a comment on this post before 6pm EDT on Wednesday. A winner will be chosen at random. This is the perfect opportunity for all the new kids to step up and introduce themselves. Where are you from? What are you writing? What else do you love to do?

Well trying to write a bunch of stuff but the main thing I am working on now is a mystery. :)

Scott said...

Notebook? Did someone mention a notebook? Free?? Oooh, free! Contest? Dang. Possibility exists that I will not win. Double Dang.

According to statistics . . .dang, didn't do well in statistics class. Oh, well, perhaps the odds will be in my favor. Odds? Vegas? Must go search for cheap flights . . .NOW!

S

Verification Word = rularr. The Rularr of Xenobia wasn't happy that the visitors from Earth couldn't quite grasp the sound concept of a double 'r'.

Fun, Rebecca! Adult or kids' mystery?

Michelle said...

Hi, Rebecca! I didn't know you were writing!

Scott, did you perhaps consume a bit too much coffee this morning? :)

Sarah said...

Scott, I didn't even take a statistics class. So far, though, I'd say your odds are pretty good. : )

Rebecca Q said...

yeah - have a few things in the works. Have a play finished - but have not tried to get that published yet as it was written for a project. Sarah more adult kinda on the fantasy/sci-fi side. I also have my much neglected blog ;)

which I deleted a bunch of stuff from today - and will at some point add more book reviews to. Really I will ;) but now the cat is attacking things on my desk making writing even this impossible.

I definitely need one of those :)

TerryLynnJohnson said...

ooh, I love contests! Putting a link to my site for my readers to find you.
I'm currently reviewing a contract for my middle grade novel, Dogsled Dreams. It's an outdoor adventure. With dogs.
And I'll have whatever Scott's having.

Tess said...

I'm not a new kid, but I'm a fan. Still writing MG. An adventure-mystery this time around (as opposed to my last which was a straight forward mystery).

Sarah said...

Aren't those moleskin notebooks great, Robin?

And TerryLynn! Congrats on the contract. I have to say, I'm fascinated with sled dogs. My family had two huskies when I was a teen. They were fabulous dogs.

Tess... adventure mystery? After all the talk on your blog, I have to ask. Is this historical? Or are you trying something different?

I love MG and YA, I have written a few picture books but they do not have the length they need to make it. I am currently working on an MG about a 13 year old girl dealing with the death of her grandmother. Also a fantasy novel of a young girl who holds the mystery of her life in the palms of her hands and she has no idea. Plus I have been toying with the idea of gothic comic novel about alien life sucking vampires taking over junior high.

And yes you always need a notebook, ya never know when inspiration might smack you in the face.

I love those Moleskine notebooks, especially that little elastic band that keeps everything nice and tidy. :)

I hope people introduce themselves! I'm Davin. I write literary fiction. I've completed a few short stories, but my real passion is novels, so that's what I spend most of my time on.

Jennifer Major said...

Moleskin? Yum! I keep paper all over my house because I can't remember anything after 5 minutes!

I've written a MG novel, Homer & Rosie, that I am trying to get published. Trying to begin my next one now. Just started a blog a few months ago and am now realizing I can not keep up with posting every day! It's just too beautiful in Virginia right now to write!

Michelle said...

Sherry, my stories often feature a grandparent as well.

Davin, I love the way your mind is organized! And I'd have guessed literary from your blog style.

Jennifer, we're in about the same place with the writing. I'm looking for an agent for my MG, and slowly starting the next one. Are you going to SCBWI Mid-Atlantic in November?

Tara said...

Hi, I just found your blog, and I love the name. Looking forward to following your adventures.

Michelle said...

Hi, Tara, and welcome!
