No, I'm not talking about my awesome roller skating skills.... I cut it up on the rink this past Friday with my book club. I crossed my leg right over the other with my smooth turns while doing the "bounce." LOL! What fun it was! Next time I'm pimping myself out.... I mean WAY out with shiny jacket and neon pink wheels. It' all about the style, baby.
But no, I'm talking today about an uber-fantastic group of writers on Writer's Digest Community called YA/Crossover. We're of like minds since most of our MCs are eighteen years old and on the cusp of the YA genre. But we all feel it's a really important age for teens--a time when they're on the brink of full adulthood, but not quite ready for all the accountabilities that come with being a full fledged grown-up.
We just reached 100 members and we're celebrating with a simultaneous blog post today!!
Does this category fit your work? If so, click on the link above and join us in our writing endeavors. It's a great bunch of peeps who are always supportive and postive. Sometimes we share snippets of our work, our blogs, contests, etc. Come check it out!
BTW I discovered this weekend a nifty little thing you can do to your Blogger blog to prevent that annoying word verification from coming up. You know what I'm talking about?? That thing that always makes you type in some funky word before you can comment on someone's blog?? We don't really need it. Spam doesn't really make it's way into writer's blogs. We're kind of a network all our own. So if you'd like to remove that (and I kindly suggest you do if you wanna make it super easy for others to comment) head up to your Settings and Comments, then disable your word verifiaction.
Also, I was intrduced to this cool new application called Digby. Click on the link to learn how you can arrange all your social media into one platform for easy access. It looks really cool.
And as a reminder, if you haven't done so already, please click on the blue ribbon to your right and become a fan of the Facebook pro teen self-esteem page, F.L.O.A.T.
WriteOnCon's monthly chat tonight at 9pm EST. Anything else going on I missed? So many contests I can't keep up with'em all. Hope your week is extra creative! How was your weekend??
