Hello all of my friends, family and subscribers!  I clap and squeal like a little kid each and every time someone new follows my blog.  I would love to get to know you better and introduce you to my other subscribers.

With that in mind, I would love it if you subscribers would “reply” to this note with some information about yourself.  That can consist of what you like to write about and where/if you’ve been published.   I’m interested in what you like to read, how many siblings you have or what color your hair is…well the content is up to you.  Hint Hint:  by adding the URL to your blog or website we will all be encouraged to visit you.  Last but not least, don’t forget rule Eleventy-Five.

Rule Eleventy-Five~I know that writing is serious business to those who are serious about it.  But let’s also remember to smile.  Everyone go back and add one silly thing you like, or do, or think about ~ to your post here (since you can’t edit your remarks on wordpress, just comment/email/Facebook me and I’ll add it in for you).   Me?  I like to make up stupid numbers.  Eleventy-Five.  Fourty-Eleven.  Seven and two cow patties.  Now ya know.

  5. Firstly, thanks for encouraging your followers to all get together!

    I am 20 years old and in between drinking tea, napping and attending university (majoring in Public Relations and Spanish) writing is my keenest pleasure in life. I was a finalist in the Sydney Morning Herald Young Writer of the Year competition, I have three stories published online at vibewire.org, an opinion piece in the Herald and various pieces in zines.

    My favourite pastimes include staring at paintings, making faces at small children and learning new words. When I grow up I want to be retired.

  8. 😀 Okay
    My pseudonym is Ileandra Young (its the only name I’m known under in internet land) and since writing is the only thing I’ve kept doing since I was twelve, I kinda figured that its something I quite like doing. So I’ve kept doing it. Mostly novel length stories and there are two at the moment I’m pushing to get ready for publication (either self or through publishing houses… depends how my luck/planning takes me).
    I write (high and urban) fantasy, horror (occasionally), comedy and erotica. The erotica needs a bit of a push, so while I’m on a break from the big projects I’ll also be looking into that. I do write it under another name though (my mum knows this name very well, so I can’t decide if I want to write ‘dirty things’ in a place she can find it!).
    As well as all that I have a radio show that runs every Sunday evening, which is bit of a jumbled blend of requests, chatter, bad jokes and funny news stories. Its an internet show as well, so people all over the world can listen… if they like.

    Okay… and for rule eleventy-five…
    I’m quite partial to the number 12. As in quite obsessed with it. If someone asks me a question, if the answer is a number just reaction is to just scream 12! Kinda like someone hitting you in that spot on your knee where your leg kicks out. You can’t help it, you don’t control it, it just happens. Same thing. eg
    Stranger: How old are you?
    Me: 12!
    Stranger: Um.. are you sure?
    Me: Ah… no. Not really, actually.
    Stranger: Can I see some ID please?
    *shuffling*
    Me: Here.
    Stranger: This says you’re 27.
    Me: Um…

  11. Hooray! I love eleventy-five!

    I’m Katie. I’m happy you found my blog and commented on it this morning.

    Today, my hair color is reddish brownish, but it looks more brownish when I’m in the light of my home bathroom. I have an attention span of about 2 days for things, like crafts, puzzles, jobs and sadly sometimes relationships. I tend to write about what’s going on in my “inner world”… processing, not processing, wanting to find clarity, frustrated when I don’t. I admit that I walk in contradiction. I love and hate writing. If I don’t write, though, I feel like I cease to exist. My vocabulary is atrocious.

    Thanks Neeks!

    Eeerrr, I’m Dian, an English teacher who’s struggling to write better and better each day, as well as an independent blogger and a writer, although I haven’t really published anything lately. The last time I got my short story published was more than 2 years ago. I wrote some random stories in my blog as well, and I also put my published stories in that same blog (the stories, though, unfortunately, is written in Indonesian). You could check them at my blog here: http://www.abunchofnonsense.wordpress.com and go to the ‘Stories’ and ‘Random Stories’ page. 🙂

    As for the eleventy-five… This would be surprising. Due to the number of English posts that I wrote, now I found difficulties in writing things (including stories) in Indonesian, my native language. I feel like I need to learn my native language better… All words and sentences that I could think of in my head are all English!

    • Hi! I wrote a “picture book” – it’s called “The Sun” and is a non-fic kid’s science book. (The last I knew, it was in international circulation) But if you want to read a REALLY FANTASTIC kid’s picture book, you MUST get ahold of one titled “The Frog Rancher” by Annette Griessman. I was allowed to read it before it was published – and I fell in love with it – and with “Clover” (the title character.) It starts out “Clover was the daugher of Big Ed, the most famous cattle rancher in Hickory Springs. From the day she was born, Clover was a bit different from the rest of her family…”

    I have been agonising over what to write here and came up with my rule Eleventy-Five fact, but it was one of those just before sleep ideas and I’ve since forgotten. So, slightly less exciting than the lost original: I’m always writings lists of jobs to do, that get re-written and re-ordered, and re-written again, which is why it’s taken me weeks to get this posted.

    I’ve been writing fiction for about ten years. Before that it was research reports and papers, which helped with use of language but not vocabulary. I buried my first novel attempt and then got into short stories for a while. I had a couple published and some short-listed, which was good and encouraging. After a bit of a break, due to boat fitting and huge amounts of DIY, I’m back to writing and finding it a bit up and down. I’m writing a novel length story and some days the words run like a tap (faucet) while others they seem frozen in the pipes. I blog about my progress (or lack thereof) at sarahannhall.wordpress.com

    I’m Shannon. I live near Washington DC and am a “stay at home” (which is somehow mostly in the car) mom with 2 kids (and 2 cats & one dog).

    I started to enjoy writing in the 1st grade where my teacher had us write poems. I was very proud of my one “Autumn,” but don’t remember any of it. She had me enter some school contest where one kid in each grade got their writing “published.” The works were printed up with title pages, etc and bound in little brown hard-covered books. I was picked for my poem “Cats” (I think that’s what I called it). I will share it with you (from memory) now as the “silly thing.” Please remember I was about 6 when I wrote this (I loved punctuation).

    Cats

    Cats lay in the sun.
    Cats have very much fun.
    Cats can purr.
    I like to touch their soft fur.
    Cats like to play with string.
    They always do such funny things.

I am 3/4 of the way through with my current WIP – a historical inspirational romance (based on real events and real people) now, and feel like I have stepped into the ‘real world’ of writing. I even joined a writing group and the ACFW. Other than the blog posts I “publish,” I have yet to “be published.” One day. . . all in good time. I’m still young (28 next month).

    I stay home with my two-girls (3 1/2 and 2) and live with and care for my balance-challenged Grandma. When I’m not going crazy trying to balance it all, I like to act crazy.

    My favorite is twirling around in the living room singing made up songs and ‘interpretively’ dancing to whatever the muse decides. My oldest (3 going on 13) likes to roll her eyes at me and tell me not to be so silly and dance like that. Lucky for me, my youngest can still be swept up in the swirls, twirls and stupid rhymes.

    I write about my writing at: http://www.birthingbooks.wordpress.com

    And I write about motherhood and life at: http://heidileanne.com

    I love your blog, and beware: I will find three words just for you.

    Hehe, bring them on Heidi, and I love swirling and twirling too 🙂

  40. Hi Monique, thanks for visiting my blog at http://gottafindahome.wordpress.com I am currently compiling a book of conversations I’ve had with ‘street people’. I’m hoping to have it published it in the near future. ~ Dennis

    Dennis what you are doing is important and I think more people should be aware of it. Good luck! Folks, you should check out both of his sites: http://gottafindahome.wordpress.com/about/60-2/ and http://dcardiff.wordpress.com

  41. Okay… I’ll just give y’all a link to some of my publicly published shorts. (the stuff I don’t get paid for.)

    The blog “style” I’m currently using is kind of clunky – so if you want to read more, or to pick and choose which stories you want to read from the variety of types, you’ll need to page back through the “older” writing posts – by clicking the “older” thingie.

    If you have more serious interests, I also have a few political posts, and some econ posts, and some organic gardening stuff… well… look at the header for what else there is. I don’t post often as I’m kinda busy… but you’re welcome to comment (and maybe even enjoy or LEARN stuff.)

    Hummmm…. about me personally…. hummm… well… ummmm…. I’m a bee keeper. We’ve had two hives (topbars) for two years and this year we are adding 15 more colonies – to bring the total up to 17. We are also introducing 5 Langstroth hives in addition to the 11 more topbars (+ 2 replacement topbars as the original two were not really well made and are deteriorating rapidly.) Towards the end of April we will be treking out to Cheyenne to pick up the girls. I’m looking forward to the trip back as I’ll be riding with around 45,000 girls. Whoo HOOO!!! ;-D
