Alex Cavanaugh and Matthew at QQQE for hosting. The Universe is smiling down upon them. You can check either of their blogs for the deets, along with the linky link.
While I love the idea of this blogfest, I also think that paying it forward is something that should happen every day in the writing community, and it can be done in big or small ways. But it's usually the small things--the encouraging words from complete strangers, the funny videos and jokes, the writing tips--that can keep you motivated, especially when you're having one of those (many) days when you want to light your manuscript on fire. Seriously, I don't know what I'd do without my blogger buddies. They make me laugh, cry, smile, pull my hair out, ponder, and sometimes even scream. It's all good.
The blogfest rules state that I'm supposed to highlight three blogs in this blogfest but, sorry, there are 300 that I could mention. And I'm not one for rules.
Pop on over to Alex or Mathew's blogs and join this blogfest and follow some new writer friends this weekend. Last I checked, over 200 people had already signed up! Don't forget to leave comments at the blogs you visit so that people can follow you back!!
