It’s Monday and if I try to write a “real” post, I’ll be consumed with it all day and never get any work done on my WIP. So, welcome to…
The Monday Mashup
1. Proving My Point– Yesterday, I posted Blogging and Writer’s Insecurities as a way to help me get past my frustrations at lack of interest in some of the posts I’ve put a lot of effort into. I had come to the conclusion that stats don’t really matter, I just need to write what’s in my heart. As of this morning, that post is now my second most liked post after Terrible Tip Tuesday: Advice for a Writer’s Loved Ones.
It’s so nice to have such instant feedback on something I’m struggling with as a writer and also to have such great discussion in the comments. It may seem a bit contradictory to be celebrating the success of the post given the topic, but I think the point is proven that when we write from the heart, we have a better chance of connecting with our readers.
I ❤ Ninja Squirrel Chasers! I think we’ve all earned a new victory dance!
2. Alpha Showdown– Last week I went on an Alpha kick and during my research for my posts, I stumbled across Vampirebookclub.net’s Alpha Showdown 2013. Jericho Barrons won the 2011 title and Curran cleaned house in 2012. Curran is back in the competition this year and up against some heavy hitters like Ethan Sullivan, Jane Yellowrock, and Eric Northman. Wooo! Let’s all go vote for our fave Alphas!
