Blogging and Tweeting and Writing, Oh my!

Posted on April 22, 2012 at 4:38 PM
This has been a busy week!

I've managed to write three out of the four articles I need for my website content gig. It's really tough to get those keyword density numbers up without compromising your writing style.

I did a re-write and an edit for a flash fiction story that I will be submitting in a few weeks. I'll keep you posted as to where you can read it when it's accepted. (I'm thinking positive.)

This weekend was the Missouri Writer's Conference. I couldn't make it, but have several friends who attended and I have every intention of picking their brains clean for new info and insights.

A special congratulations to my writer friend, Amanda, who took 1st place in the On The Spot writing contest at the conference. I can't wait to read her winning entry.

Another special congratulations goes to another writing friend, MaryAnn, who took 2nd place in the same contest. I'm anxious to read her winner as well.  She also pitched her novel, Killing Rabbits, and was asked to send the first chapter to an agent based on the first page only. It's a thrilling, dark, sad, twisted, and redeeming story. I know it's hard to get all that into one novel, but she did it.

It's been a week, but I'm still reeling from my short story, Macchiato Memoirs, being selected as the story of the day at Every Day Fiction on April 15th. You can still read, comment, and vote on it by following this link: Macchiato Memoirs. I promise I won't rave about it after this week, but please indulge me in a little more afterglow.

I've surpassed 100 followers on Twitter and have Tweeted 99 times. I'm also closing in on a short-term goal of 100 Blog  Posts by the end of the month. I'm confident I'll make it, but want to make certain that the content is worthy of my readers.

This was also Prom weekend in my town, so I got the opportunity to do a photo shoot of one of my favorite people and his girlfriend. I know many people think it very odd that a 19 year old and a 52 year old can be friends, but he loves literature and has a very unique mind. I expect he will be a published poet before long.

Last but not least, my daughter-in-law's ultrasound confirmed that my next grandchild is a girl! Of course this led to a pink power shopping trip and a depleted bank account, but she will be a very stylish little girl.

I hope everyone has had as productive and happy a week as I've had. Here's to hoping that next week is the same or better! Keep Writing!
