My First Ever Giveaway Win

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I've been retweeting information about Andrea Hurst's AUTHORONOMICS summer contest. It ended on the 23rd, and lo and behold, I won one of their prizes. :D

I'm really excited about the prize, which is the book, The Writer's Portable Mentor: A Guide to Art, Craft, and the Writing Life by Priscilla Long. It has really good reviews, and looking through its contents, I think it's just the advice I'm looking for. So grateful! (I also got Robert McKee's Story out from the library, but Blackdog* is taking up all my reading time right now.) I'll be sure to review it once it's up in my queue.

Going Halloween-shop trolling with my friend Sara, hoping I can find some good zombie stuff/decapitated heads/free-floating spines. Zombies aren't original, but hopefully if I get gross enough I can still win a prize at my work party...

*I am a very, very slow reader. I also have a crush on Holla-Sayan.


  1. I wish you had been the Angry Birds. That's so you and Jordan. I can just picture it.

  2. I never win things on blogs. Which is weird because in real life I always get the closest parking spot at the Walmart. I guess luck doesn't transfer online. P.s. I LOVE that book.

  3. You've read it? Glad to hear the praise--I'm excited for it!

  4. I've just been reading through you rlast few entries. You've been busy! Congrats on the win, and good interview.

    Okay, I really should go feed a baby now. Just wanted to say "hi."

  5. Thanks thanks, tell the baby I said hi. :D

  6. Will do! (I'm really just using this comment to test something, don't mind me...)
