A Quickie....

Good morning!  Ok - so I'd fully intended for this to be a quickie (no, not that kind.  Here's your mind.  The gutter's not here...or is that just my mind...hmmm)  :)  But, as I go through the things I want to list today - there's A LOT!  SOO many wonderful celebrations, blogfests and contests going on right now.  So, let's get down to the nitty gritty:

Tomorrow, I'll be participating in Erica & Christy's HOT Blogfest!!  SUPER easy.  All you need to do is post a pic of your favorite mug!
POST YOUR FAVORITE MUG PIC ON 1/27!!!

OH, HO!!  This one is SOOOOO cool!!  HollyAnn of Can't Fight the Write (a wonderful new blog I found - go check her out!) will HAND MAKE the winner of her contest a DOLL THAT LOOKS LIKE YOUR MC!!!  Is that too cool, or what??  Seriously - what an amazing keepsake.  I sooo want this one!!


Enter BEFORE 2/2!!

Lydia at The Word is my Oyster is celebrating 600+ followers with a very fun, infectious contest!!
Go get DISEASED before 2/4!!!

Some other fun ones you simply MUST get in on:

Kimberly at Meetings with my Muse is giving away a $100 gift certificate to Writer's Digest.  YES - you read that right - $100 smack-a-roos!!  She suggests using it towards a webinar with Mary Kole - but you're free to use it however you please.  Just comment and follow by 9pm ET this Friday, 1/28!!

Shelli at Market my Words is also having a WONDERFUL Pay it Forward contest on 1/31!!  Her instructions are a tad bit involved (but, SO worth it) - so I suggest you follow this link and read up on how you can get the chance to win a free query critique, a 3-chapter submission AND a PERSONAL recommendation from Shelli to her agent, Alyssa Henkin of Trident Media!!  Wowza, right?

I know I'm probably missing some greatness here.  This blogging community is just TOO generous!  (Oh, yeah - you got in on Nathan Bransford's 1st paragraph mania, right?  Due by tomorrow, 1/27 @ 4pm PT)

Ah, heck!!  ALSO - now this is important - Shannon Messenger is giving away a DUAL query critique to one lucky winner!!  She's teaming up with Matthew Rush of The QQQE.  Trust me - these are two sets of eyes you WANT to look at your work.  Amazing opportunity here.  Enter BEFORE midnight THiS Friday, 1/28!!

Wow - did I say "quick"?  Sorry - just have one last Celebration mention - and that's my own!!  I'm celebrating 100+ followers and you can read all about it HERE!   Happy Wednesday!!
