The Countdown Begins


Wow - I just realized I'll be having my one year blogiversary (why does that word look so wrong when I spell it, but so right when anyone else does?) in ten short days. I was such a complete rookie when I started, but you guys stuck with me, welcomed me into the community, and now I'm no expert, but I do feel like I've established some roots, made some great friends, and gotten a little better at this whole blogging thing. Thanks everyone!

In honor of the occasion, I'd like to try a little feature that I've seen done on some other blogs and have really enjoyed. We spend a lot of time out here together in the blogosphere, reading each other words, sharing victories, and offering encouragement when needed. I, for one, really appreciate the opportunity to get to know my fellow bloggers on a more personal level. So, if you leave me a question in the comments, I'd love to answer them as the blogiversary approaches.

So...what would you like to know?

Have a great weekend!

See, it's true, time does fly when you're having fun! My question is: If you could get personal writing advice from any author (living or dead), who would that be...and why? Happy Blogoversary almost!

Favorite character crush???

Candyland said...

If you had to choose, would you rather have a fantastic book no one sees or crap that has been published?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I agree - the word just looks wrong. I didn't even try to spell it on my blog this week.

Explain the significance of the smiley faced coffee mug.

Hi Susan! Congrats on your anniversary. :)

Hmmm, how long do you typically spend on revisions? Which do you like writing more? First drafts or revisions?

Do you know anything about queries? Oh sorry, that last question kinda jumped in there. (I happen to be writing one. UGH) :)

Thank you for sharing Baxter with me.

Clarissa Draper said...

Congrats!

I don't know if it's been asked but, my question: Do you follow a blogging schedule and memes?

Les Edgerton said...

Congratulations, Susan. My question is a two-parter--(1) If someone didn't "step away from your coffee cup" did you take them down? and 2. If you took them down, did you draw blood?

In the words of my favorite ballplayer, Brian Wilson, your blog has "a lot of awesome."

Clara said...

Happy Blogversary to come!

All right, question:

If you had to choose between a baby monkey in diapers or a cute,puppy dog, which would you take home?

Jeanette Levellie said...

Wow, one whole year--way to go!

Let's see: what is your favorite coffee?

Lenny Lee* said...

hi miss susan! WOW you been blogging for a whole year! how cool is that! i love your blog! you got soooo much followers. i like we get to ask questions cause its neat to know more about you. i could want to know how could do so much good posts and get around to all those blogs and do comments and do comments back to commenters and still get time for reading and for being a writer and being a wife and mom and not getting any sleep. yikes! that was a pretty long question. ha ha
