Hooray! And a Contest!

Posted in Blog, Writing

Hello friendsies and a Happy Monday to you!

This week is chock-full of happy news:

1)  As some of you may have already figured out, I finished the first draft of my WIP.  Whee!  I feel like baking everyone in the blogsphere a cake.  Then again, smashing cake pieces through the computer screen would be rather messy (not to mention I’d get crumbs all over my keyboard), so here’s the next best thing:

 2)  I got to 166 followers on my blog this weekend!  That means I’m closer to 200 than to 100.  Woot!  200 followers, here I come!
3)  I met fellow blogger, Bess of It’s the World, Dear, last week to discuss my critique of her piece (she was the winner of September’s DIY MFA contest).  Anyway, I had so much fun reading her work, I thought to myself, “gee gabi, you gotta do that more often.”
So, in light of all these exciting things, I’ve decided to throw another contest called:
The Road to 200 Contest

Here’s how it works:

To enter the contest: Leave a comment below.  That’s it.  No tallying entries or or all that icky math stuff, just your shiny happy comment to this post.  Isn’t that easy?

Prize: One lucky winner will get a critique of their first 25 pages from yours truly.
(Standard formatting: double spaced, 12pt font.)

But wait… it gets better!

If you’re not already following this blog, you might want to join the fun.  And spread the word because…

If I make it to 200 followers by the time the contest closes, I’ll double it to two lucky winners.

Contest closes this Saturday (11:59pm November 20 EST)
