Friday Favorites

This week I'm taking a cue from Carolyn V and have started a "What's Happening" bulletin on the side of my blog. Her blog post kind of hit me last week. I haven't been very good at reaching out to people, which probably comes from my fear of rejection.

So, I've decided to try to be better at sharing good news, announcements, accomplishments, anything that helps reach out to others.

For today, I've decided to highlight Elana Johnson's new cover. For one, it's an awesome cover. Second, Elana has always been willing to reach out to writers whether published or not. She tries to respond to comments and comment back even though she's a published author.

So congrats to Elana.

Other things I've loved this week or am going to love. My days off work, the massage I'm going to get today, watching my middle child play volleyball, watching my boys play basketball together on Saturday, watching my daughter get excited about art.

How about you? What did you love this week?

Hopefully you have a wonderful massage, Patti.

I think my post today will tell you the day I'm having. :( (Curse you Blogger and Google!)

I'm in love with the weather this week. It's just transitioning into Autumn and I love it. I've been taking walks on my lunch break and just breathing it all in.

Enjoy your message and kids' games.

I'm loving my gym membership and wish I'd done it sooner. I had such fun at my water aerobics class last night and slept so well because of it.

Also loving celebrating the anniversary of the Hobbit, and getting my book launch "blog ramble" scheduled. Slooowly coming together.

Oops, I meant massage. But hey, if there is a special message out there for you, I hope it is good news! :-)

Elana's cover is gorgeous!

Carol Riggs said...

That's a great goal, to share good news, announcements, etc. My blog post is sharing a book release, this week. :) Congrats to Elana, and enjoy your days off work!!

Carolyn V said...

Yay! I love the what's happening sidebar! And congrats to Elana! Love that cover.

Wow, I wish my kids loved sports as much as yours did (we have a few computer geeks at our house). ;)

Love the What's happening in the sidebar! I am like you...I often find it hard to share my own good news or where I am in the process. It makes me I guess. So much of being. Writer is about steeling ourselves for the journey. I admire people who can be strong yet also show their vulnerability, too. :)
