Fun Friday Contest Winner

And the Winner Is…

This week’s winner is none other than Openchannel!!! Congrats! I’m sure you’re going to enjoy Kelly St.John’s book, Ghost and Roses. She’s a wonderful writer. Just a small plug here, this is the second in the sexth sense series and the third, Shiver and Spice comes out in September.

Openchannel email me at vickilanewrite at with your snail mail addy and I’ll send out your signed book.
Other great news that must be shared: Erica Ridley has an agent. Squee!!!! You can read all about it at her blog and the Manuscript Mavens Blog. She has worked hard to find not only a great agent but to find the right agent. Very important, but I’ll let her tell you all about it. Which means go read the blogs. Oh and if you’re not currently reading her blog on daily basis this is one that I highly recommend. You’ll find craft information, encouragement to writers, and just plain fun stuff too.

Now, for all of you who are doing the 100 words – 100 days, don’t forget to check in on Mondays with your word counts. If you’ve had a great week we’ll celebrate, if your week hasn’t been as stellar as you would have liked we’ll encourage. I know for me checking in helps keep me accountable. I know that I’m going to give my word count good, bad, or indifferent to you. So I write.

If you haven’t joined us yet then why not start today? If you’ve started and then fell off the writing wagon (like I did after conference), then jump back on. It’s a great motivational way to increase your writing habits.

So, how has your week been? Did you get to write or did life get in the way?
Oh yeah, and Monday there’ll be a new contest for the week. Now, leave a comment and go check Erica’s blog.

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,

Hey Vicki. I'm not involved in the 100 words challenge, maybe I should sign up, I need an extra kick in the behind.
Life got in the way of writing this week, but I'm hoping to get back on the horse tonight.
Wish me luck :)

Wow, cool! I must be on some kind of roll. My husband and I won festival tickets two weeks ago and last weekend I won a drawing. Good times!

(guess I have to add this to my challenge list, which has grown from 13 books to 20 - haha.)
