Thursday Helpful Links & Reminders

This will be a brief Thursday post since I'm insanely behind in everything! Busy, busy, busy, busy, busy week. In a good way, for the most part, but color me overwhelmed. Also, I started getting caught up with all your wonderful comments and visiting your blogs, and I will finish today!

Okay, some links!

This first one might be of interest to writer bloggers trying to get out there. Ink Pageant is looking for blog posts on writing and publishing.

Jenny Woolf is having a really neat, travel-related giveaway. Go check out the eclectic mix of items she's offering for the giveaway! Tomorrow is the last day for it, so hurry and hop on over.

Chuffed Buff Books is looking for poetry submissions for an anthology with the theme "Journey to Crone." This is a paying market.

Real Women, Real Stories is looking for stories about women's lives for an anthology.

Finally, don't forget the Flash Fiction Contest I'm chairing, with the theme "Are you Devious at Heart?"; the A-to-Z Challenge is still taking sign-ups and is heading toward the 1100's; you can still vote for your favorite A-to-Z video; and the Pikes Peak Writers Conference is still open for those who haven't signed up yet.

Have a wonderful day! I will be visiting everyone who commented this week before the weekend! Sorry for falling so behind.

P.S. My son's field trip was great fun! I learned a lot, and seeing how happy he was when I showed up was just wonderful.

Any helpful links you'd like to share? Planning on entering the Flash Fiction Contest? Signing up for the A-to-Z? Need a little help in getting signed up for either of those or the conference? I'm here to help!

May you find your Muse.


  1. I love going on fieldtrips with my boys. Great advice on turning off captcha (read older post). I hope more bloggers turn it off. It doesn't seem to be necessary. I've had mine turned off since last A to Z challenge.

  2. This is my first time doing the A-Z challenge and I'm really excited about it. I'll be finishing up the first draft of my WIP this week (hopefully) and it's going to be great to have some structured writing to do for April.

  3. Thanks for the helpful links! Good luck getting caught up.

    This is my first year doing the A to Z challenge, too!

  4. Thanks for the links :) The only helpful link I've found this week is for Game of thrones catch-ups, so not all that helpful to most people, hehe.

  5. I know that busy feeling. Good luck getting caught up and thanks for the links!

  6. Mary, I agree; it really hasn't been an issue for me since I turned it off, which I was initially hesitant about.

    Jaye, good luck with finishing the WIP!

    Bel, I hope you enjoy the A-to-Z!

    Jamie, I've heard a lot about Game of Thrones, but haven't experienced it for myself.

    Christine, thanks! I'm starting to get there!
