Housekeeping Day!

I have some housekeeping to do here at The Write-At-Home-Mom!  I thought I was avoiding housekeeping by blogging, but apparently not!

First, I want to thank my lovely new friend and critique partner, Alison Stevens, for giving my blog an award.  It is a nice virtual high-five and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for the acknowledgment.   Part of the award is to bestow it on 15 others that you enjoy.  Stay tuned next week for that list!

Next item on my list is to mention the Dear Editor picture book edit contest that is going on now!  You can win an edit of your picture book from Deborah Halverson, the author "Writing Young Adult Fiction for Dummies" which will be coming out in 2011.  This is a great opportunity for a professional look at your manuscript!  Trot on over to Dear Editor to check it out!

Next is to give a shout out to my new friend, Quinn, over at his blog, "seeing, dreaming ... writing".  He is having a contest to celebrate his 100 followers.  I have to say that his blog is obviously the result of a lot of hard work, dedication, creativity, and passion.  I've really enjoyed his posts as he delves into the paranormal and supernatural worlds.  He has a unique voice that I think you'll enjoy, so go check him out, follow him, and maybe enter his contest!

And finally, I just wanted to point out my posting schedule that I have in the header.  I'm finding that posting all weekdays except Thursday is fitting in fine with my "real" work schedule, so I'm going to go with that.  I can write at night and post first thing in the morning before I "go" to work (a.k.a. walk into the room next to my bedroom).

I think that is all for now!
