You've Been Inked Award

I visited a blog today during the "How you met your husband bloghop" and after I commented on her entry, I looked around and read few other posts she had written. The name of the blog is The Enchanted Writer.

Well, I realized how cool and utterly informative the blog was and decided to follow. Wouldn't you know it! I was her 200th follower. Woot! Woot! I know how completely EXCITED I would be if I had 200 followers. I've got a looooong way to go, but hey! I can cheer for other, can't I? Sure I can!

So, I'm having a party in celebration and honor of the the owner of the Enchanted Writer, Andrea Teagan.

The 2nd reason I am so excited about this is because one of my favorite characters in the very first manuscript I wrote (that has started on the journey to find a publisher) is named TEAGAN.

How amazing, right? You gotta love it as much as me. If (*when*) this story ever gets published, I hope I can remember to send you a copy, Andrea!

Won't you join the party with me! Lets' have some cake and ice cream!


Oh, and Andrea, I am giving you an award! This is an award I created and I give it out to whomever I please for whatever reason I want. I'm giving it to you because, well,  being a new follower, your amazing blog, AND in honor of my character, Teagan. So Andrea, you've been inked!


  1. I stopped by for the party and to follow back.
    and congratulations to Andrea :)

  2. Hey Heather (I love your name! I've always thought it was such a preppy name!)

    Grab a party hat and eat some cake! It's going to be a long weekend! Enjoy the fireworks:)

  3. Yay! I love parties! and I hope the cake is chocolate.

  4. I had a feeling that the 200th person would be special, and would be someone I'd like to get to know. I am so glad it is you :)

    Thank you so much for honoring me with a celebration! I will be posting this up on my blog as well. I look forward to reading your story, that is so cool that they are named Teagan.


    1. Thank you Andrea, for hopping over and saying hi:) Here's to the 200th follower friendship. Hey! We can start our own something special. Some kind of promotion/celebration something or another. I don't know. Let's think on it and come up with something spectacular, okay?

    2. yay!!!! That sounds fun. If you get any ideas let me know!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!
