Mash-up of Magnificence #1

by Jenny Hansen

There are exciting things happening here at Writers in the Storm! Besides this first installment of our Mash-up of Magnificence, we’re excited to welcome Tara Taylor Quinn next Saturday. She’ll be stopping by on her blog tour for It Happened on Maple Street. Plus we have some more guest bloggers starting in the next month.

We’ve exempted Fae Rowen and D.A. Watt from mash-up picks this time. Fae is prepping photos for next weekend’s installment of From the Safari Journal (click here for the 1st one) and D.A. is pruning a nice big trench around her writing schedule, which you can read about here.

Laura Drake, Sharla Rae and I have plenty of links to keep you busy. Below are the top three from each of us with the criteria being: they had to make us laugh, cry, or think really hard.

So fill up that coffee cup of yours and prepare for some MAGNIFICENCE…

  1. Jenny,
    Thanks for the mashup. I hope you included my blog post because I made you think, not made you cry. We all need to re-examine "why" sometimes. And now is as good a time as any.


    1. LOL, Michele! No, your blog really made me stop and think a moment about WHY I write. I've really amped up my focus on it this year and that focus is starting to pay off, but I hadn't stopped to contemplate the "Why."

      So, thank YOU. 🙂

  2. Thanks for including my post on The Writer's Challenge! Interesting FYI, since that post is from 2009 - one of the books I was talking about working on was picked up by Ellora's Cave Publishing and retitled Hollywood Spank 🙂 It came out last month!
