Blogiversary Alphabet: I is for It's Here!

It's here! My first blogiversary ever! Today is the official day to commemorate my humble beginnings one year ago. Wow. February 10, 2010 to February 10, 2011. Listen... Do you hear all the cheering? People are doing cartwheels and throwing confetti in the air. Silly string is flying across the room. Since I'm reminiscing and all that, I thought I'd also link back to my 100th blog post where I shared 100 things about me. Just a quick recap of this month's Blogiversary Alphabet, so far:

  1. A is for All Out Effort
  2. B is for Blogiversary CONTEST ***
  3. C is for Countdown
  4. D is for Debut Author
  5. E is for Entertainment
  6. F is for Friends
  7. G is for Gifts of Daily Writing
  8. H is for Hard Work
  9. I is for It's Here!
 *** Reminder to enter the CONTEST to win cool prizes ***

Enter any PB manuscript this month to see if you have what it takes to be plucked from the slush pile. The winner(s) will receive:
  1. recognition
  2. a critique
  3. a marketing plan
Remember, every one that enters the PB contest will also be entered into the drawing to win...
  • Kim Norman's very cute Crocodaddy book
If picture books aren't your thing, you can also promote the contest for a chance to win...
  • The Giblin Guide to Writing Children's Books by James Cross Giblin. It's a wealth of information for ALL children's writers, including MG and YA! 
If you blog about the contest, you'll get 5 extra points. You can tweet once daily @christiewild for 1 point per tweet. Just tweet this (copy and paste), or feel free to change up the wording if you like: February Blogiversary Alphabet - contest to win #writing books and a critique of your PB! @christiewild.

I also stands for "I am a writer!"

Keep on keepin' on...
