February is looking pretty exciting

With February just around the corner, I thought I would take a look at what's going on at the beginning of the month.

From February 6th thru the 10th I will be participating in the "I'm Hearing Voices" blogfest. Signup is on this blog here.

Basically, you'll be roleplaying and interviewing your characters. Kinda fun huh?

Next up there is a blogfest being promoted by Alex J. Cavanaugh but is the brainchild of the Cruising Altitude 2.0 blog.

Here's what it's about:

On Monday, February 13th, post your own origin story. Talk about where your writing dreams began. It could be anything from how you started making up stories as a child, or writing for the school newspaper, or even what prompted you to start a blog. How about stories about the first time somebody took an interest in your writing, or maybe the singular moment when you first started calling yourself a writer. It all started somewhere and we want you to tell us your own unique beginnings.

We all need blog posts and these kinds of blog fests are great to get the juices flowing and to meet more people. I of course have signed up for both and hope that you join me :)

Also this week, I may get my cover art! My book will no longer be blank. I'm excited. Have a great Monday.

  1. Thank you for posting the Voices one!! I knew I'd signed up for it but had forgotten what it was and where it was being hosted. ;)

  22. Hey, Michael,

    I can't wait to see your cover!

    Thanks for the heads-up on all these cool blogfests. I might just have to enter a few of them.

    Time is sparse, but we all need to keep our minds active and our hands on the keyboard to write...

  23. I'm signed up for the origins one. I used to think like Grumpy there, but have come around some in the past 6 months or so. Looking forward to more of them though.

  28. How exciting you'll have a new cover to see! And maybe I'll sign up for the "I'm Hearing Voices" fest, though I hear there's medication I could take for that...

  29. I totally wrote my origins post not too long ago. Reposting that would be cheating, wouldn't it? If not, I can join in on Origins no problem.

    Looking forward to your character posts. :)
