Today is Alex J. Cavanuagh's 'Oh How I Miss You,' Blogfest. I signed up because I really miss a blogger buddy.
Jules, at Trying To Get Over The Rainbow. Jules and I used to exchange e-mails so you can understand that we formed a great friendship over the miles. A little over a year ago, Jules started work again and had to put blogging aside. I really miss her sense of humor and fantastic insight.
The great thing is I can highlight blogger friends that are current as well.
I love Denise Covey of L'Aussie Writer. She is such an encouragement and fast friend. Denise came up with Romantic Friday Writer's which is currently postponed until after the madness of NaNoWrMo. Which is National Novel Writing Month and we are in the middle of it. I appreciate Denise for her great critique, her insights into more than just writing and her Aussie friendship. When she posted last month that she could watch the whales from her balcony, I wanted to go for a visit. Watch out Australia, this crazy American just may show up one day.
A new friend who I met while visiting all the excellent Romantic Friday Writer's post is Yolanda Renee at Defending the Pen. Yolanda has also become a critique partner and together we are writing ourselves into a frenzy. Well, maybe not a frenzy. LOL
So who would I miss? Well, of course I'd miss everyone. I can't imagine life without you. But in addition to Denise and Yolanda I'd really miss Alex. I mean, wouldn't you? I don't know how the man does it. He writes and blogs and works to boot. Good thing he takes a break to watch movies. So here's to Alex J. Cavanaugh, the master mind behind this blogfest.
It is so wonderful to become friends with those who share little snippets on their blogs. I never would have met any of these wonderful ladies if not for blogging.
Romantic Friday Writer's called, Holiday Spirit Blogfest, Dec. 12 - 21. This is a two part blogfest, one with recipe's the other a Christmas memory written either as an 800 word story or a special memory that you'd like to share. I suspect, I may have to write a story. One of the wonderful things that I have brought away by participating in Romantic Friday Writer's is that, yes I can write short stories and flash fiction. I never before believed I could and now I'm winning awards. So I hope some of you will join us.
Thanks for stopping by.
