I heard from my friend Kasie who heard from her friend Darren who heard from his friend Stanford who heard from his sister Kyla that all the cool kids are doing the 7 Link Challenge.
Since I am on a little va-cay this week, this sounded like a splendid idea. Plus I always wanted to be one of the cool kids.
1. Your first post - Committing to Be a Writer reflects on the decision to join SCBWI and the realization children's books weren't written by people jotting down rhyme in a few minutes here and there.
2. A post you enjoyed writing the most - Stand Up Comedy for Writers was written on the way to celebrate my 10 year anniversary in Puerto Rico. Drink service really gets most of the credit for the post.
3. A post which had a great discussion In the Middle of the Lake with no Breeze Rejection letters are like boo boo knees on the playground: when you get one all the writers come running to take care of you. Instead of Band-aids they usually suggest wine, chocolate, ice cream, and more writing. It always works.
4. A post on someone else’s blog you wish you’d written. For Newbies- How to Get an Agent by Linda Epstein. I'm not an agent so clearly I couldn't have written this one. I have read volumes on publishing, but this post was the moment it all made sense.
5. A post with a title that you are proud of - How to Write for Children and Executives I really thought I was making a dramatic change in how I wrote by moving to children's books from the corporate world, but it is basically the same.
6. A post you wish more people had read - Hello do you think I named this post How to Stalk an Editor to scare you away? No! I did it to make something exhausting like researching publishers a little more enjoyable. So go read it already.
7. Your most visited post ever – My Liebster Blog Award had the most views, partially driven by sharing publicly I was a writer. The most comments came from the Versatile Blogger Award which forced me to bare my soul (in regards to guinea pigs and NPR at least).
I can totally see why all the cool kids are doing this. What a great time I had reliving the short but exciting journey to this point. Thank you to all of you blog members and readers for creating a supportive environment.
Now back to the beach!
