ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

My lie revealed. Welcome Crusader Groups 20 and 21 - ROMANTIC SUSPENSE/CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE/SWEET ROMANCE/HISTORICAL ROMANCE

Hello to you all! And welcome to the approx. 100 new followers who've joined me since I launched my Publication Party! I've been getting around to you slowly, but many of you are not linked through google friend, so unless you leave a comment I cannot find you. Many bloggers are having this problem!

Some of you in my crusader groups are old friends, some new and some very shiny new! It is going to be fun following all your latest posts and commenting. I haven't finished going round following you all on twitter yet, but I will make sure I do asap.

i've just popped out to make us a badge. Take it to display near your Romance feed.


So welcome:

I've finally finished linking you all in my left sidebar. Hopefully we can encourage each other on our romance-writing journey.

Congratulations to those who made the final cut in the first Crusader Challenge - woo hoo! Can't wait to see who won this fun writing challenge. Oh, and for my crusader challenge most people thought I was lying about my son's fuliguline - no! So true! I have his flawed pottery dog and love it. My lie was that I'm a dust collector. I don't like lots of stuff to dust. Who does?

  26. Thank you for going to all that trouble, Denise. Just put up the gorgeous badge!

  27. I don't like a lot of stuff to dust, but I'm a collector, so that just happens. Blame it on my grandma. She got me started on salt and pepper shakers when I was a baby. I've since gotten rid of many of them, but I still have plenty of favorites. ;)

    Have a great day!
