That's right! Happy Wednesday, we're halfway through the work week. Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you following my blog? I really do. So I decided to start a Wednesday routine where I blog about one of the blogs I follow. I spend a lot of time reading other people's blogs, and there are so many great things about them.
So, Wednesday, I dub thee... Bloggers Unite Weekly Spotlight! I'll introduce a blog I follow and tell you why.
This means you may see your own blog in the spotlight, since I follow all my followers as well. :)
Without further ado, I'd like to shine the spotlight today on: ELANA JOHNSON
Okay, so most of you already follow her blog, but if not, you should be. She is a published YA author. Her book, Possession, is due out next year. You can check out the cover on her blog. Anyway, I know not everyone writes YA, but it doesn't matter. Elana's blog is full of helpful writing info. She also has an eBook out called From the Query to the Call. You can download it right from her site and she's offering a free query critique with every purchase.
So she is kinda my hero right now. Not because she already has a book coming out, but because she works so hard to give back to the writing community. She's a founder of Query Tracker.com as well as WriteOnCon. She blogs on tips for blogging and making connections, as well as crafting the best novel you can. She's got a pretty cool experiment going on this Friday on Compelling Charaters. Check it out on her blog and sign up for it if you haven't already. That's what I'll be blogging about on Friday.
Anyway, Elana isn't just a lucky duck who has this great thing happening. She works really hard. It's apparent in her very honest blog posts. She takes time out to answer personal emails and visit other blogs as well.
So that's my weekly spotlight. Tune in next week and you never know.... could be YOUR blog in the spotlight. (Tweet Tweet) ;)
BTW: I had a great workout last night and I've been off the workout routine since I wrote my last ms. I also gained 10 pounds because of it. BUT I'm on a mission to lose them again, and I thought, I bet there's a lot of my fellow writers who'd like to get healthier. SO I'm making it a point to let you, my followers, know each Wednesday and Friday that I did, in fact, work out the night prior. If I don't obligate myself, then I won't stay at it. (My routine will be Tue and Wed nights)
You have my permission to let me have it if I don't mention that I worked out. Of course, I could be lying and say I worked out, but we won't go there... no need to be dishonest. :s
If you're like me and want to not only focus on writing, but also on exercise, why not join me? Add to your posts that you've been working out too. We'll help each other through it. :)
