Adventurous and Musical Updates!

WHEW. Guys. That was one heckuva trip! I ate with ninjas and editors and agents and writers and other cool people (the food including rabbit, tentacle pasta, and crepes). I did something totally completely touristy, and it turned out hilariously awesome. And I discovered a hidden cloisters! Really!

But there is really too much for one post--so I'm going to post about that next week.

Instead, I'd like to direct your attention to this:


And remind you about the contest! Post your adventurous stories on your blog for a chance to win a signed and doodled copy of Across the Universe...and a little something-something that I picked up in NYC!

Want to check out some of the entries so far? You do. You know you do. Because YOU GUYS ARE AMAZINGLY AWESOME. And you all have had amazingly awesome adventures that put me to SHAME.
I think that's everyone! Please tell me if I was stupid and missed someone!

And meanwhile...you still have time to enter if you haven't yet! The contest closes on October 20th--so you don't have MUCH time--but you do have time! Either post about your own adventure or spread the word about the contest, and make sure to leave your link here.

As for me...I'm going to go through and re-read all of your awesome-o adventures. Your lives are amazing. Seriously.

Your writing is awesome. You'll probably help make SF more popular in the younger crowd. Question... how long did it take you to write this well? I've been at it non-stop for ten months, and while I've seen much improvement, I'm still not "there" yet. As a writer, did you continue to improve after one year, or did it sort of "plateau", with you focusing more on story, ideas, etc? Hopefully that question makes sense; either way, keep kicking butt.

Thanks for the reminder. I forgot about this contest. My best adventures are embarrassing though, so I'm not sure I want to send them out into the vast interwebs.

I'm having an awesome time reading everyone's adventures, too! Thanks again to Beth for posting my video, and to you guys for saying such sweet things about it. :)

Love the song, well sung and one of my favourite Beatles songs. Bless you for your sweet synopisis of my adventure story. Will have to check out the opening chapter of your book. It's sooo exciting. Thank you. :O)

Glad your trip went well. Sounds SO EXCITING. I wanna trip like that.

Did you find Sirius yet? Praying. Ivy works at the animal shelter. Did you check there? They only keep the animals three days.

I have so much going on here, I'll just blog about the contest. You have a lot of great entries though. :)
