I have new friends! And I won stuff! Twice! It’s a good week in the world of writehanded.
A wonderful creative person by the name of BlackSheep has created a new network called BooksDownUnder, for all of us bookie/writer type bloggers in the Southern Hemisphere. Spread the word! It’ll be a place where we can chat about writing in a kiwi context, and meet loads of new like-minded peeps.
Also, the BDU community is joining in the <3 to write? #writeconnect! literacy movement started The Best Damn Creative Writing Blog. Beginning today, everyone who tweets about writing or books or other wordy goings-on can hashtag #writeconnect, with the aim being ” to foster a steady, global conversation about books while bringing readers and writers of all genres together.”
So not only am I meeting a whole bunch of cool new people, one of them gave me an award! To my memory Writehanded’s never won anything before so – yay! and thanks to The Black Sheep for the honour.
The rules of the award say I need to pass it along, so I’ll be on the lookout for someone to crown.
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
And finally, my team hates me and has voted me off the island because I won the work raffle the first time I entered. Yay for my lucky number 6!
Kiwiwriters http://kiwiwriters.org/ is also a great little writing community 🙂
A lot of us are from there, actually 🙂
