CQ Carnival: Amy Fecteau's Blood Drive

A blood drive? At a carnival? Why not? When characters in certain books need to raise the awareness for the need of blood donations, what better place to host a blood drive?

Or booth's host name is Quinn. He is a character out Lisa Fecteau's novel, published by Curiosity Quills.

In case you are wondering, he's a Roman Soldier!!!! He's rather, er, different I guess you could say. And it was all his idea to host a blood drive. I'm not for sure who or what organization he's collecting for, but I'm sure it will all be for a good cause. If you want to know more, hop on over to CQ headquarters and get Amy's book!!

And so for this blood drive, you really won't be giving blood. But please, give a piece of advice. Any type of writing advice. You're a writer, right? I'm sure you have some kind of advice for new writers, or seasoned writers, too. After all, a writer never stops learning!

Let's have a successful blood drive. What are you going to donate???

  1. Hmm... where do I begin. LOL

    My blog is aimed at new writers. You might enjoy going there and nosing around.

    One piece of advice would be to read good books on the craft and find a few good critique partners. Good luck! :)

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot

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
