And the winners are…

I posted a bookish gift guide, a writer’s gift guide, and a giveaway last week. The response was fantastic! I used Rafflecopter to choose two winners, which meant I didn’t have to personally choose anyone. The winners have been chosen. Next year I’ll have to do a couple more giveaways, this was fun!

I wanted to do this, because I appreciate all of the support y’all give me. Whether it’s on here, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, I love reading your comments, seeing you share me stuff. I love when you let me know you get me in some way. I don’t know if there’s any other reason to do this other than as a way to form a connection.
To know that I’m not just shouting out in a voice, that my voice isn’t lost inside a paperbag. So I do this little thing to show that I care. I’m not sure how else to do it. If I could, I’d give you all hugs, make you a cup of tea or coffee and chat with you about your day. Or binge watch Jessica Jones on Netflix with you. Instead I write poems and short stories and I make videos about books and writing. I try to share stuff that’s interesting and fun. Things that are very me.

2016 I’m going to kick things up a notch. I want to put all of this into a higher gear. I feel that this year has been a little slow for me. I have goals and I want to achieve them.

I made goals at the beginning of the year, I’m going to talk about how they went and what my goals are for 2016 later this month.

My first short story in a long time will be posted this Wednesday. I’m going to be posting more short stories and poetry on here, because I want to share my writing with you, even as I’m working on other larger projects.

I have so much more I want to say, but I’m going to wait to do all of that in a post later this month. Know that I’m out here, trying to connect with you. I’m yelling in the void and I think a few of you see me now. It’s nice to know I’m not alone.

Thanks to everyone who entered and be looking for more giveaways and ways to connect in the future.

And if you’d like to chat with me and other writers, join us on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on Twitter. #writestuff TweetChat where writers talk about writing. We’re a group of writers, we talk about it, we love it- some days we hate it- we try to offer support, and we listen. I’m proud of this tribe and I’d for you to come, if that’s your sort of thing. If not, I understand. Maybe something else I cook up in 2016 will be more your style.

Alright, I’ve gone on too long. I’m the girl, who keeps you on the phone much too long, even when you’re said you had to pee 10 minutes ago.

Aloha y’all!

Project #WriteTube Announcement!

These last couple of weeks I feel like I always have something new to announce. This time it’s something that’s happening on YouTube!

I’m collaborating with 11 other content creators. Over the course of the month we’ll be posting a video M/W/F. Each one will have be answering a different question. No two questions are the same. Some of them are about NaNoWriMo and others are about writing in general.

Here’s a video to tell you more:

And…just in case you’re interested, here’s the calendar of events!

 

Btw, be ready for a deluge of poetry! It’s time again for OctPoWriMo! I’ll be posting a poem per day and if you want to join in the fun, definitely check out the web site!

A blue social flower

That’s the name I’ve decided on for this poem. I did a poem challenge, which was really fun and easy to do. I won’t go into all the instructions and all of that, because it’s right there in the video. And I wouldn’t want to cheat you out of the fun! Huzzah poetry and a book. It’s like this challenge was made just for me. (It wasn’t though. I was just lucky enough to find it.)

One of the things I want to make sure to do this year: write more poetry and share it on the blog. I don’t think they all have to major works. Why not have some fun while we’re at it? I won’t post all of my videos on this blog, but when they’re writing related in someway, then they should live here. Don’t you agree?

Enough with the typing, here’s the video! Enjoy!

 

Oh and just in case you needed a reminder:

Self Editing

 

I hope you’re having a great time in your new year and getting jump start on your goals!

Aloha y’all!
