Kindle Contest and Crit Coolness

Two things since I am too tired to be alive right now:

1. Reggie at The Undercover Book Lover , Lisa at A Life Bound By Books , Aly at Kid Lit Frenzy , and Mavie at The Bookologist are giving away a Kindle!!!  US only, contest ends March 4.  Whoa baby!

2. Report cards are done, I sent my very first pages ever off to my new CP, and I just sent her back her very first pages.  Scary stuff but I'm very excited about it and it is definitely getting my butt in gear to get more serious writing done.  I loved reading Rebecca's work and our stories are so different (different genre, different tense, different POV) that it is very refreshing to take breaks from mine to read hers.  I've never really had someone besides family and friends read for me (and not even much of that), so this is a big step in the right direction.

Ok, now I think I am sleeptyping.  Off to bed.  Go win a Kindle! ;)

UGH, the dreaded report cards...aren't they just the worst? trying to sum up a child on a piece of paper just doesn't seem fair or right!
Go to bed and enjoy the weekend~

Congrats on finishing your story and getting your pages sent out!

Yay on finishing report cards - I've still got a bit to go.

CPs are invaluable! It's always good to hear from another person what they see in your story!

Lol yeah, I have to say I am always very happy when rep cards are done.

And you can tell how tired I was... I think I wrote "very" 85 times in that short little post...

Crit partners are cool. I'd be lost without my writers group :)

And that USBTypewriter; OMG, thats just so cool. What an idea. I think I'm glad its time has passed, however (lol).

Sweet dreams Lindsey . .

Thanks for the link! I would love to win a Kindle---my husband has one and I often stare at it jealously. :)

LOVE my CPs! They are priceless! Thanks for the links, and oh, Hi! :)

Carol Riggs said...

Ooo! thanks for the linky for the Kindle. Will go check that out.

And cool that you're swapping manuscripts with another writer! I hope it works out well for ya. I'm always a little nervous with a new critter, myself. :) But it's almost always never a prob. It IS fun to see others' writings!

Way to go! That is a good step forward, albeit scary! It will be great though!
