What’s Up…

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to fill you on in on what is happening in my writing world this coming week. Author interviews, guest bloggers and the winding down of the February Writing Challenge.

On Monday the 11th we will be having a guest blog post and the guest herself will be sticking around to answer and questions or comments that you may have!! Her blog is VERY popular and I am very excited that I was able to convince her to do a post for us!!

Later in the week, the writing challenge will be ending and I am very bummed that we don’t have any entrants yet. So fun and easy, maybe next time.

I will also be posting another author interview toward the end of the week and I love that!! I am always excited to hear from other author’s and what makes them tick and stuff. ha ha

One last thing, you may notice that when I make comments and posts, it may say from, “FRaPS: Family, Relationships and Personal Situations” …no worries, that is still me, but it is for my business (as my writing is for fun) and my company just expanded onto the internet and I will be blogging for them. I love WordPress, but I can’t seem to figure out how to have more than one identity at a time on here. Oh well. Either way it is still me that you are talking to. 😉

February Writing Competition

(my apologies for sending this post right after the other one, but I will be away from my computer until tomorrow night. I wanted everyone to be ready for the two-week competition)

Valentine’s Day Writing Competition is under way! I want everyone to enter to win. It is free and it is for absolutely any genre. So easy and so much fun!! Show me what you got.

Rules: Please have it somehow be about Valentine’s Day in any form you would like. Keep writing to 1000 words or less. Post the story on your own blog or Facebook page, or wherever else you want it and then come here and write the title, genre and your link directly to the story. (If you do not have a blog or whatever, then please just post it in the comments, but not erotica please. As much as most of us enjoy that, my site isn’t restricted, so I wouldn’t want the younger ones to stumble onto it without warning.)

Take a few minutes to read through the stories and give a thumbs up to the ones that you would like to see win. You can “like” any of them, but only the “thumbs up” will count as actual votes.

This is for fun, but do also keep in mind that we are offering small cash prizes for the most votes. Poetry, romance, fiction, YA, erotica (with a warning in the title, genre and link comment) mystery, horror or absolutely anything you want. Just write something and tell us where to find it. I will do my best at spreading the word for all of you to help get as many votes as possible.

I won’t be near a computer until tomorrow night and I will be very excited to see who has participated!! Make me proud!!

First Writing Challenge

Alright, so the thought of a writing challenge seemed to go over pretty well. I have been giving this some thought and I think I am ready to start it off. I have come up with some rules to make it fun and interesting that I think will make it fair for all.

Bare with me though, because when I say “I have given it some thought” that means that I have run a million ideas through my head and these are the ones that stood out. But they may not make sense once I put them in writing. lol So please let me know if I am writing gibberish and I will try to clarify.

For each challenge, I will pick either a topic or a genre and a word limit, then it will be up to you to write it and post it on your blog or wherever it is you want it and then come back here and in the “comment” section write the title and the link that will take them to the writing piece.

Everyone will be able to go through and check out all of the stories. But the challenge will be (and I haven’t completely come up with an easy way to do this yet) to see how many votes that you get. I don’t mean how many “likes” you get on your own site, but how many of your fans are willing to take the next step and come back here and give ME their vote for you. Does that make sense? I have a small reward that I will be offering up each month for the winner. And when I say small, I mean small. It is coming out of my own pocket here, so don’t get greedy.

We all love to read and write and that is why we are all here. So won’t it be nice to just have fun for a change? It will still give you great exposure, possibly earn you ten or twenty bucks or so, all while you are just playing.

How does this sound? Should we do it? Yes, YES!! Let’s Do It!!!!
