Blog Hopping

Over at Plot Monkeys, Alison Kent is blogging about plot using braiding. I like it. Might try it.

Jordan Summers's(not Sparks) blog has Ginger Clark, agent for Curtis Brown Ltd., answering some questions regarding the agent relationship. By the way, Ginger says she's looking for paranormals with genies and sucubus. Can you just imagine the fun?

Don't forget to check out the Valentines Round Robin over at Manuscript Mavens. You get to vote on what happens next and it is hil-a-rious. Seriously, give it a look.

Oh, Sven is back, baby. Need a daily inspiration and motivation, Sven is it. Whether you sign up or not, when this site goes active for the 70 days of sweat, it is well worth stopping by to see the daily post. Setting and maintaining reasonable writing goals is one of the hard things to do for the newby and even experienced writer. Having a supportive community is great for this. And you can see Sven's picture. :)

It's a bit late for the contest, but Lauren Dane's post on Sex in books is awesome.

While on the subject, Morgan Hawke (quickly becoming a favorite of mine) has an article up about romance and love. Check it out.

Valentine's Day got you down. Then join the rebellion and just so no to VD. (I'm so immature that I giggle everytime I see VD.) Amie Stuart is leading the charge.

So go blog hopping, I know I do.

Edited: I need to hire an editor to check my blogs before I post. No spelling errors just wrong words, which is worse really?

I wanted to thank you for pointing me in the direction of the lastest Sven challenge. I'm up for round three.

I really need to re-read the plot braiding, but I think I'll save it for later - too much in my head already.

Oh and just because I'm being a piss, Jordan Spark? Really? Unless she writes under something other than Jordan Summers I think you've got American Idol on the brain.

Again, thank you for continuing to drop by my blog. I promise, I'll be dropping by here more often.

(blushing in shame) I'm blaming seeing S and arks for the Sparks. I'm really not a big fan of American Idol, so I have no idea how that got in there.

Thanks for the catch. :) I always enjoy reading your blog.

I know, you saw the Grammy's, she sings she must of been there. Not that I would know I gave up on award shows a long time ago.

Or maybe you could blame it on moving brain. I know when I moved a year ago my brain was mush for weeks and I only move a mile.

Thank you for the compliment.

Nope didn't watch the Grammy's was fast asleep at the time. Time shift to England is a beeatch when it comes to awards shows. The only one I usually watch is the Academy Awards and the MTV Movie Awards. Oh, well, I'm sure I've heard or saw it somewhere. I could've sworn I saw it when I went to the Jordan's website though.

Thanks for the linkage. I've printed off the plot-braiding notes to read later. (Brain is mush at the moment - too many spreadsheets)
I've signed up for Sven again, too. Going to better my total for last time!

LOL don't feel bad. So do I!
