Did you watch the ball drop? Do you have resolutions this year? Lol, I have resolutions – most of them involving learning how to cook and then, secondarily, actually working out so I can eat even more home-cooked awesomeness. 😀
Lol, I’ve also been sick in bed this week – I had a pretty nasty fever ~102!!~ aaaaannnnnd theeeeeeeen…. on my way home from the Doc’s I managed to fall off the sidewalk somehow and twist my ankle.
*shakes head at self*
Lol, only me. 😉
So I pretty much napped all weekend, and spent the day watching anime with the husband New Years Eve until it was time, then fell right back asleep, lol.
My New Years was very calm, and I’m really well-rested for a change. XD
This also gave me time to wrap up my submission to The Dark Crystal writing contest! Did any of you guys participate? Good luck to those of you that did! 😀
I also wanted to let you guys know the winning movie from last week’s request poll. Thank you guys for voting! 😀 And now the results ~ which movie will I be reviewing this month for sure?:
Drum roll please!
** I, Frankenstein **
I’m looking forward to checking this one out. The preview really looked promising, and I do like this actor. 🙂 It comes out January 24’th, so I’m hoping in the meantime I can get another review or two out there for you guys as well.
Lol, alrighty, it’s back to bed for me. I’m going to kick back and enjoy some lazy time before work tonight.
I hope you guys have a wonderful New Year, and that your 2014 will be full of joy and opportunities! 😀
Until next time, Take Care and Happy Writing! 😀
I’ve never won anything before . . . well, didn’t really win anything here either, but I was on the winning team.
. . . and I wish I would have known about the Dark Crystal competition.
I did submit my Torin story to The Writers of the Future contest. Not really all that hopeful, but I figure I should start actually trying to get something accomplished with my writing.
Good luck to you and your submission.
Thank you, and good luck to you too on your Writers of the Future contest! 😀
I’m hoping the Jim Henson company will have more contests in the future. If I hear about any more fun contests I’ll pass them along to you. Recently, I’ve been looking at this Cupid for Writers I found on Twitter, which seems an interesting way to get your work noticed – http://www.cupidslitconnection.blogspot.com/
It sounds like they’re getting ready for another contest of some sort, although I’m not sure what genre. I’ll definitely keep you posted when I hear something. 😀
There are also a couple websites I’ve been looking at that seem like really good (lol, and free!) platforms to get your work read and reviewed – http://authonomy.com/about.aspx – & – https://nokbok.com/how-nokbok-works
Thanks for the links; I glanced at those briefly, but will look into them when I have more time or have something ready.
As a rule, I’m not big on groups (people form cliques, there’s personality issues, I’m a jerk, and I’m less tolerant of other jerks than I used to be) but recognize that’s one way to get feedback.
My current plan is to submit stuff, and see what sticks (if anything).
Hope you feel better soon, Paige. I’m bringing in the new year at the observatory where I work, observing low surface brightness galaxies. Tomorrow’s my day off and looking forward to having some time catching up with sleep and working on some of my 2014 writing and editing projects.
Thank you, David – I’m feeling much better now. 🙂 I still have a cough hanging on, but it’s not bad. Good luck on your writing and editing projects!
Hope your better soon, you have loads of drafts in poets corner 🙂
Thank you, Harry – I’m feeling much better. 😀
Happy New Year to you, Paige. Hope you find wellness and success in each and every day!
Thank you, and Happy New Years to you too, Lorna! 😀 I hope your year is filled with joy!
Happy new year and I hope you’re feeling better!
Thank you, Joleene – I’m feeling a lot better now. 🙂 Lol, I have a cough that doesn’t want to go away, but it’s not bad at all. And Happy New Year to you too! 😀
