Wednesday Writings ~~ UBER COOL STUFF!


I've been hit or miss in Blogland a lot lately. Most of my time has been taken up with getting our new website, newsletter and fall issue of Rose & Thorn Journal spit-shined and polished.

Across this great and supportive online blogging community, friends are helping Kat and I spread the word of our literary baby's entrance into the world as the newest edition goes live tomorrow. THANK YOU ALL!

We hope you'll sign up for our quarterly newsletter which announces each issue. Most of all, we hope you'll browse the new site when the locks are opened tomorrow, give us feedback (good, bad, ugly), and send us good wishes and prayers for success. :D We're truly excited about our new online home, and the prose and poetry content we're publishing!

In other exciting writerly news, agent Nathan Bransford is having a first paragraph contest. Past winners who posted from their WIPs or completed manuscripts have been awarded representation by this most blogalicious agent. There are over 1,600 entries so far, but it's not too late to throw your hat into the ring. Hurry...contest ends tomorrow, 4:00 Pacific time! [Ooo, hope he doesn't mind my borrowing his blog ID photo. Is that a Piggly Wiggly logo on his shirt? Love it!]

I already entered my entry into Nathan's contest. Third time is the charm, I hope.

Great links and advice. Very excited about the launch and will check it out. Also thanks for the other links - with a big pay cut this next two yeras for teachers in Hawaii, I need to find a second job. Wouldn't it be nice if it coudl be free lance writing?

I never noticed Nathan's shirt before, but ya know I do believe that is a Piggly Wiggly logo. I entered on day 1, and I think I got in under 100. Amazing how it's grown.

Can't wait to see the new site!

And wouldn't it be funny if I submitted my first paragraph and won since he already rejected my query letter? LOL.

Terri Tiffany said...

I threw my hat in the ring! Thanks for some cool links and hope it goes well tomorrow! Just got in late last night and trying to adjust!

Glad to have helped spread the word. And Kathryn, (my daughter's name--same spelling too), congrats on that new future grandchild!
