Just a quick Thanks!

I wanted to let you know that Chapter one of 'Bloom' is up on Greenwoman's blog now. It's been up since Monday morning, but I've been busy and haven't been on here, so I'm telling you now. Go and read it. Michelle's done an excellent job of setting up a really interesting plot. Can't wait to see what comes next. She's got pictures up from a weekend getaway on there first, I think if you scroll down, you'll be able to find it.

Also, I check my audience to see who's been looking at my blog and I just want to thank you.

When I started this little blog, I never dreamed I'd have people reading my blog from Australia, Hong Kong, Brazil...the list goes on and on. I can't believe it. I'm wondering if they just happened on it and it was a mistake. That's a lot of mistakes though. So I'll just say
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I think you people are really nice to take the time to stop and read a few of my words.

Round Robin Blogvel

It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. Tried to get done with school and then got a spark of an idea with my manuscript, so I've been working on that.

I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be in a 'Round Robin Blogvel'. This is a title my friend Michelle at Greenwoman made up last year when she came up with the idea of having blogging/writer friends to all write a chapter for a story. She wrote the first chapter and each week somebody else took over and wrote the next one. It sounded like a lot of fun, but at the time I was a little too shy to participate in it. I wrote a short story for a blog contest she had. I ended up writing three for three different blog buddies last summer. They turned out better than I ever thought they would.

So this year, when she said that was so much fun, she wanted to do it again, I said I would. I think there are 14 of us, and she'll write the first and last chapter. The chapters will go up every Monday. I'm not scheduled until July, so the story will be well on it's way by the time I get to it. She'll post it  on her blog sometime today. As I type this, it's still WAY early in the morning in Oregon, so it will be a little while. I can't wait to see what she's come up with. Her imagination rocks!

I'll make sure to have a link to each chapter on the other writer's blogs, so stay tuned. If you decide to read this remember, there are a lot of different writers with all different styles. It's not a contest to see who can write the best chapter. So don't judge I'm sure as far as experience and quality of writing, I'm pretty low on the  totem pole. This is to challenge us to start a story and twist and turn it and hopefully keep it interesting. I'll be in and out today running errands, so when her post goes up, I'll let you know. :D

Hope your week is a great one
