We'll Call This One a Special Friday Scramble

Writing Book Giveaway at Northern Colorado Writers Facebook Page

The two books we'll be giving away to one lucky writer in the U.S. (because the books are kinda heavy for international mail) on the NCW Facebook page are:

2011 Novel and Short Story Writer's Market

2011 Christian Writer's Market Guide

All you need to do is log on to your Facebook account, find the Northern Colorado Writers page, and leave your answer to the Friday question in a comment. And while you're there, would you be so kind as to "Like" our Facebook page?

New West Fest in Fort Collins, Colorado This Weekend

This outstanding annual event kicks off with concerts at multiple venues on Friday evening and continues throughout the weekend. Food and a beer park, music, and a gazillion booths on several streets with everything from artwork to mosquito repellant.

I'm making time on Sunday morning to go down early, before the heat and the crowds get too bad. This time I'm going to remember my camera. I'll be on the hunt for photos to make you laugh. Wish me luck.

The (Not So) Dreaded Synopsis - 5 Tips To Set You Free

This post is at Roni Loren's Writing Blog: Fiction Groupie--Pantsing My Way Through Debut Authorhood. Many thanks to a tweet from mystery author Elizabeth S. Craig (@elizabethscraig) for pointing the way.

Today and Tomorrow

Two big writing/rewriting/revising days in a row. I'm off to work.

Pat - Thanks for the "heads-up" about the giveaway and about that synopsis post. Much appreciated on both counts. And the West Fest sounds like so much fun! Have a great time!

The New West Fest sounds cool!

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds like a fun festival!

Roni often has great posts! :)

Margot and Alex -- the one year I volunteered at New West Fest was the only year I can remember where it was cold and rainy. Luckily, my shift was only two hours long and I was under a tent. Usually it's in the 90s and sunny, which is why I go in the morning.

Jemi, one of the things I love about Twitter (and especially Elizabeth's tweets) is finding new writerly blogs. Roni's is a good one.

The festival sounds like epic fun. Hope you get some good pics, Patricia!

And best of luck with the editing!
