Yes, I'm on a Break, but You Gotta See This!

My hiatus hasn't even begun, but I'm breaking it already. Told you I couldn't do it! But I've found some links out there in the blogosphere that I just had to share. There's some great stuff going on right now. Check it out:

Agent Sara Megibow has posted a letter on Natalie Bahm's blog to romance writers. If you write romance, you'll want to get over there ASAP.

DL Hammons over at Cruising Altitude is on a quest to find blogging buddies across the globe. He's still got a ways to go, so let's help him out! In the U.S., he still needs buddies in Hawaii, Maryland, Mississippi, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, and West Virginia. If you know of any bloggers in these states, please help spread the word!

Karsten Knight has posted an awesome instructional dance video for men to celebrate 100 followers. You DO NOT want to miss this, unless you've got something against laughing. Seriously, you need to check this out.

I shouldn't even be telling you this (because I want to win!), but Marcia Hoehne is giving away critiques of the first 1000 words of your manuscript. She's an author and a writing instructor. The deadline is June 22 at 6am. LATE BREAKING NEWS: I won this critique! Thanks so much, Marcia, and don't worry guys, she's giving away two more critiques next month!

I'll miss you guys, but I'll check in when I can (and hopefully be a little more disciplined about actually staying on break!)

Does a broken break constitute a break at all?
Get back to the hiatus.

Just read about your break and hope you have a good one! I'll be doing the same this summer, but I can imagine it will be tough to stay away.

I see that you're on a mini-sabbatical from your blog like me! (But just like you, here I am, not able to keep away for too long. This blogging is way too addictive, isn't it?) Wish you a wonderful and rejuvenating break, Susan!!

Jen said...

I hope your break is going well Susan!!! It's hard to stay away, breaks are hard, I end up feeling guilty, especially when I don't get anything done that I had wanted!!!

Cheers for giving it a go!
