Firstly, I want to thank every one of you (and hopefully I have individually by now...I hope...*runs to check really quickly*) The turn out for a writer calling to other writers for their help was mind-blowing to me! Thank you all so much. And it helped tremendously!
I have decided to mix and match ideas. Do a few chapters in 1st and see what I like. Add more perspective into my MC in 3rd and see how that goes. And honestly, stupidly, I hadn't thought of doing that. I was all ready to do one or the other. Sometimes I can be very dense. Derp. Of course I can do both. IT'S MY NOVEL. *facepalm* So thank you all for making me realize I was being too narrow minded about it. And for all the time you all took to read and comment and think for me where I was not.
Now. We have business to do, right?

Congrats you guys! And, yes. I did hand write and cut AND fold each piece of paper into relatively the same sizes (to compensate for longer names. My hubs things I'm insane. He had no idea wth I was doing. Still didn't tell him come to think of it. Ah well.) You were selected out of my special, winter, sexy pirate man couch blanket.
Such a great turn out for this contest! Loved it! Some really incredibly funny ideas. You guys are good at bad ideas. I take that to mean you're even greater at good ones! Some of them actually sounded like funny novel ideas...I mean...*steal*
Lisa, Donea, and Liz please email me your info, where you want it to and how to get it to you.
This has been blowing up the internet for days but I couldn't not pass it along just in case someone hasn't seen it yet.
Literal Music Videos!
If this isn't funny, I don't know what is!
Yep. That WAS Urkel.
To keep it short, those are the only videos I have today. As much as I want to keep you all here all day long, I wont be selfish.
HERE Natalie Whipple will break your writer heart. I only know her of now because of this entry. And I think the whole blogging writer community has come out to give her a pat and a hug and support. It's beautiful. And crushing. But hopeful, for her. We all need to hope for Natalie Whipple.
HERE is a guest blog post on Rachelle Gardner's blog by Mary DeMuth that I really really enjoyed. It's about doing what works for you in the writing world.
Happy weekend! I have already had a great start to mine and can only hope and wish for yours to be amazing as well!
