Bringing in 2008 with (Link) Love

This month's link love "theme" was adopted from Jeanne Dininni's Blogging Tale Meme.

Let's see... Where was I?

The other day I was looking over my Writer's Notes when I realized my note-keeping skills weren't very functional. Humph!, I thought. Functional Shmunctional... Why should a writer worry about Something She Wrote, or what pad of paper she scratched it on when The Urban Muse might show up?!

Ah, the Life of a Writer... Just when we think Something Good might come of all the endless hours spent in Confident Writing and we just know that we'll go down in history as the greatest storyteller of all time, we are given The Writer's Round-About--not to mention The GOOD, The BAD, & The MISCHIEF!

If you have Kids, Pets and Family, and you're a struggling Freelance Parent, you just might have to force yourself to have a cup of hot tea at G's Cottage, a little haven by the side of the "virtual" road. Be sure to stop by the bookstore and pre-order a copy of I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES, by Barrie Summy.

If you don't, be forewarned: you just might find yourself Writing on the Wall like the children instead of Writing FORWARD to accomplish your goals!

And that's not all. After Merle's Third Try, she realized with a BLINDING heart that all she really wanted in life was to spend just one day in Renie Burghardt's World.

On to other news. I was minding my own business, reading The Life & Times of Jb when I overheard a little gossip. Isn't that how we curious writers are? Anyway, I was sipping my latte, scribbling ideas in my favorite pink notebook, when I couldn't help eavesdropping on the conversation Jessica Burkhart was having with Kristen King about JM Writing and Editing Services!

Needless to say, I was thrilled to have Sylvia's Insight so I could get back to my Writing Thoughts.

Have you noticed that Erika-Marie S. Geiss seems to have no trouble pouring Words on the Page. That's great considering all us writers want to do some days is meander down the Corridors without any worries about A Writer's Words, An Editor's Eye.

Did I forget to share the latest news? Last weekend, while traipsing around the swap meet, I bumped into
Shelly and Marsha as I rummaged through Tina's Odds & Ends.

After paying for my finds, I decided to head on over to
Mary's Writing Nook and be an encouragement to a few aspiring writers who get together each week and have writer's meetings. As soon as I walked in the door, Heather Strang, Writer, introduced herself, took one look at Becca's Byline, and said, "Girl, Your Award Is Showing!

As I drove home, I reflected on all the events that took place. The only thing I failed to understand during my adventures was this: Is it really possible that Swan's Blog?


Hope you've enjoyed this month's creative link love post! Anyone who commented here in December has a link in this post. Sure, it took a little thinking. Ok, a lot of thinking, but it was fun! Of course, it's all fictional. :-)

Have a Happy New Year's Day, while writing the cyber highway, and thanks so much for all your thoughts, comments, encouragement, and friendship!
