Due Wednesday, Feb. 25th!

Some of you have still not created a page of your "to be read" books, or "what's next?" 

Don't forget to add the book cover to your reviews!  And check out Max & Kam's site, too! Give their posts a few comments!


Happy Reading!

Begin to find a regular time to post. Remember every day writing starts Sunday! It's good to choose a special time, and start those lists of ideas/upload pictures to your blog, etc.

Slice # 6 - Past or Future!

Post Slice # 6  - FOR THIS POST, A LITTLE MORE TIME IF YOU CHOOSE IT. IT'S DUE BY THE EVENING OF SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH (in a few days).  

        Might be a good time to write about a good Expo Moment, or about Valentine's Day, color(s)--see picture, or a coming vacation day you're excited about. Whatever it is, this time add at least three more details to what you "think" is done. Enhance the moment!

HAVE A GREAT VACATION!  Thanks very much for all your hard work and for the awesome displays. Here's to a terrific Expo! 

Remember to re-read your posts before you hit "publish".  Sometimes words are missing, and sometimes autocorrect creates a word you didn't want. EDIT WELL!

          Please comment on the post right before you, and at least two others. 

          Remember Max & Kam's blog, too!

In our library, recently published. Great story.
How can you resist a book with TP in the title.

Slice # Five

         Post Slice # 5 here by Friday evening, Feb. 6th! Remember to include a visual, your own art uploaded or a photo.
           Please re-read your posts before you hit "publish". Some of you are publishing some words that seem auto-corrected, & "not correct"! And others are making some sentences that are not complete, or don't always make sense. It's important to make them as well edited as possible. 
          Please comment on the post right before you, and at least two others. 

          Remember Max & Kam's blog, too!


       You're always welcome to write your slice about a part of your life, a special person in your life, or a particular time-your choice. This time, a few people asked for an idea. So, here it is! I wonder if you can connect a personal memory with this picture? 




Happy Writing!

          I'm going to look for lots of books for you at my conference, but one book actually comes out this Thursday, Feb. 5th, Fish In A Tree, by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. She was at this conference last year and I bought Lynda's book then, again, just to get her autograph! It is One For The Murphys. If you haven't read it, do. It's great.

       Here's the book trailer for this newest book, Fish In A Tree:

       Perhaps you'll want to read it...  But if not, you can always look up the book trailer for your favorite book, or one you want to read!
