As most of you know, I also blog at CritiqueThisWIP which is the home of my critique group. We originally had five members, but due to other obligations we ended up losing three of them. Courtney and I were so lonely with just the two of us, we ran a contest and found ourselves three awesome new members! They are: Suzie, Tessa, and Jill. Please take a second to visit CritiqueThisWIP and welcome them to the group!
In addition to adding new members to CritiqueThisWIP, we're also adding new features. We're continuing Friday Fiction, which is an ongoing story where each member of the group adds a new scene every week. It's so much fun we decided we had to share it with all of you, and voila! Tuesday Tag is born! It will be a serialized story which will start on Tuesday, July 5th. One of the CritiqueThisWIP members will start the story, then the rest of us will add scenes on consecutive Tuesdays. After that? Every Tuesday we'll be inviting our bestest blog friends to add scenes to the story! If you can't wait to participate, go over to CritiqueThisWIP and let us know so we can get you on the schedule.
We're also going to be doing some book reviews and more author interviews (we've got a great line up of authors to interview, and we're going to interview each other so you can get to know us better!). Oh, and keep an eye out for an awesome contest once we reach 100 followers.
So, on the Lovely Blog Award. Suzie, one of the new members of CTW was sweet enough to pass this award on to me from her personal blog, Writer Junkie. Thanks Suzie! The rules of the award state:
1.Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and her/his blog.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.
3. Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
First, let me say that Suzie is awesome for passing this along to me, and I humbly accept it. Secondly, I am nothing if not a rebel and a rule breaker, so I'm not going to pass it along to 15 blogs that I've newly discovered. Mainly because there aren't 15 I've newly discovered. Other than Suzie and Tessa, who already have the award. I'm terrible at singling out blogs for award love because I just love them all. So please, help yourself to the award cuz you all deserve it!
