We’re Halfway There! 12 x 12 Blog Party


     We are six manuscripts deep and we have six more to go - YIPPEE!!!!  Julie Hedlund, host of the 12 x 12 in 2012 threw us a blog party over at her blog to celebrate our accomplishment - click here to check it out



<---- I printed all my title pages to my six drafts from January to June.
     Since I seem at always feel like I should be more productive with my writing, I recommend doing this.

 It was as if my drafts were saying, "See, you've been busy."



Now on to celebrate...

Maybe you guys can help me decide what I should do this weekend?

A) Go to the greatest restaurant in the whole world....Applebee's?
Okay, may have exaggerated with the BEST
 in the whole world but I'd order this in a heartbeat!

B) Finally order Fifty Shades of Gray for my Nook?


C) Go out dancing?
No, not with John Travolta but who knows,
he might be cutting the rug at good 'ol Applebee's

D) All of the above???


Hmmm....decisions decisions!





Thanks for dropping by my blog today and a big THANK YOU
 to Julie Hedlund for hosting the 12 x 12 in 2012!!!

    1. Thanks Jarm! I can't wait to get one of those!!

      Congrats to you too!!

  27. Congratulations. That's a good point about printing them out. If I chose just one, I'd say dessert! You'll have to let me know about 50 shades of gray. I've heard so many mixed reviews about the writing. The story is apparently interesting. The newspaper in our ultra-conservative town noted the market for the book as it had more than 1000 holds on it at the library.

    1. Thank you Stacy! That's too funny about the holds being that high. I think I'd want my own copy if I have to wait that long haha!

  28. Jen, the party's over, hope you did them all! If not, parties go on long after the partytime is done. By the way, Poison Apple Pie is my granddaughter's favorite MeeGenius. It has sparked a string of 'tell me a story Poppi about a witch' that has brought a few PB ideas out of me!
    Thanks, love your site.
