Move Over Eleanor of Aquitaine.





I have taken the plunge and joined  Rachael Harrie's Second Writers' Platform Building Crusade. What about you?  Have you signed up yet?  I am so excited at the prospect of meeting new writers and gleening all your wonderful Platform building tips!

Hey Crusader!

You came to my blog (through my profile which is messed up. Sorry about that).

Try this link instead http://www.whimsywritingandreading.weebly.com

I'm doing the A to Z challenge too. I think it should be fun, if I really committ myself to blogging each day--tough to do. But I'm gonna give it a go.

Nice to meet you.

Ann said...

Well to all my new fellow Crusaders. I am looking forward to this challenge. I am a bit of an eejit though, because I totally forgot it would overlap with the A-Z Challenge. HeyHo! Nothing like biting off more than I can chew.

Hi Talli, did you have a gander Oh published Authour you!!!

Hi Nicole, I now have your "Arrival" on my spanking new kindle along with Talli's "The Hating Game"

Hi Kitty, You are too kind. I am feeling a bit weak at the knees to be honest!

Ann said...

Opps first word should read Welcome! See what I mean a right eejit!

Hi,
I found your blog from Rach Writes Crusade. It's been amazing to see how many of us writers are out there.
Cute blog.:)
Anyhow, thought I'd stop by and say hello. My blog is www.idevourkidbooks.blogspot.com

Anne, What a lovely image you have at the top of your blog! I'm a fellow crusader and was just dropping in to say, Hi.

Catherine said...

Hi Ann, just left an award for you over at my blog - you deserve it! Hope you enjoy doing it, and give you another creative or memoir outlet! this challenge sounds interesting - if there wasnt a general election going on here I'd be busy. I've been on the stump for Ciara a few days last week and everyone is very positive.
So maybe it's time for new faces - women's! -in the Dáil!
Hope you're better,
Catherine
