** If It's Thursday -- Part 2 **

Just a couple other things I wanted to mention.

1)  I'm probably going to begin responding to your comments by e-mail, whenever possible, instead of in the comment section. It seems like the logical thing to do, because I can reply faster and directly to the lovely person!

2)  Are you one of C. Hope Clark's blog followers? If you're a writer and you're not reading her blog often, you are missing out on lots of great information. She always has info about Calls for Submissions, Contests, the rights and wrongs of writing, etc. She is also going to be one of the key note speakers at the MWG (Missouri Writers Guild) Conference, in St. Louis next spring.

3)  Another interesting Call for Submissions I came across, and I honestly do not remember where, when or how I saw it....but it's called Shaking Like a Mountain. (And if I've already posted about this, please forgive me, because as you all know, I'm losing my mind!)

4)  And, the ever famous, Chicken Soup for the Soul, has Call Outs for 4 books right now. They pay well, give free books in addition to the money, and it's a quality name that everyone knows and respects.

  1. Thanks for these, Becky. You and Donna both have had pointers these last two days...but my brain is in park. Maybe I can get it to shift gears soon!!!

  2. Great links, Becky. Thank you! I still haven't done my 12-word story LOL. I'll get there in the end.

  3. I was published in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book once. Might be fun to try again!

    Thanks for the reminder.


  4. Hi Becky,
    Thanks for the leads. Always good stuff here.
    Donna V.

  5. I answer the people with an email too - much easier and who looks back to see if you left another comment? sandie

  7. As always, your generosity is appreciated! Thanks!

  8. Thanks for these links! Love Hope's blog and newsletter. She's a great source of info.
    Blessings for your weekend:)


I'm still getting quite a few spam comments that are Anonymous, so I'm trying "User with Google Accounts." If anyone tries to comment that I know, and it won't let you, send me an email, okay? Thanks so much.
