And the Winner Might Be....

Mood: Tired and Overworked (I need a vacation somewhere with sandy beaches, sunny days and little frosty drinks)

What I'm Watching: Ghost Hunters Academy (not my favorite option but it was on after Ghost Hunters...which totally rocks...and I'm too lazy to actually change the channel and find something else to watch)

Current Word Count: 5,221 (I know, same as last time around. I've been a complete writer slacker lately!)

I was wandering through the Twitterverse today because, as a self proclaimed writer, I feel duty bound to procrastinate as much as humanly possible, when I stumbled across a tweet from a twitter writing friend Sara McClung. She suggested that I (and everyone else) follow Shannon Messenger. So, I hopped right over to Shannon's Twitter page to check her out (well, not her obviously, but her tweets). Her tweets were fun and interesting so I added a follow and bounced right on over to her blog (because I was still working the procrastination angle)....which is where I realized just how super cool Shannon really is.

Not only is she fun and witty in her posts...seriously, you guys should totally go visit her blog, she's running an amazingly epic contest for a signed copy of Twilight. Of course, I had to enter the contest because, well, it's a chance to win one of my favorite books signed by the author! Since part of the extended entry process is to post a blog entry about said contest I came right over here to do just that. Crossing fingers and hoping for a very Merry Christmas to me in the form of a new, signed Twilight book!

If not, I've successfully procrastinated and found an entertaining new blogger/twitter friend to follow!



  1. I must agree with you, dear. I think it's built into our make-up to procrastinate as much as possible. Can't remember the last time I was early for anything. I'll also be participating in the epic contest!

    As a side note, just wanted to let you know I left a little something for you at my blog. Check it out http://bit.ly/8LrdNT

  2. Hi! Thank you so much for the lovely post--you're making me blush! I love meeting new writers this way, so that you for the follows and I am definitely following you (in the non stalkerish sense of the term...um...yeah). I did receive your contest entries (in case you were wondering) so good luck, and thanks again for spreading the word!

  3. Miss Carol you? Totally rock!! Thanks for the lovely award...I don't deserve it, but I'm grateful and will shine it up and will proudly display it!!

  4. Shannon, thanks for stopping by and for the follow!! :) Non-stalkery, stalkery, it's all good. I'm not opposed to an occasional letter made with cutouts from newspapers and magazines.


I love comments. They're like cake without the carbs.
