Today is the start of my very first Facebook event. I'm even ditching yoga to be on hand all day. Yoga, people! I hardly ever ditch yoga, so you know this must be important.
It probably also has to do that I'm recovering from a GRUELING weekend raking a couple of acres and trimming hedges. I think my poor hands are in a permanent clenched position.
This is the time of year when we flip-flop back and forth on temperature so I take advantage of the good weather when I can. A State of the Homestead update is coming next week. I am giddy with Spring Fever.
But today I trade my overalls for reading glasses and talk shop. Indies 4 Hire (the clever name Gwen Gardner thought up) starts at noon EST (NY time) and lasts all week.
Every day I'll post at least one topic for discussion. Chime in anytime. I love how you guys always stop by my infrequent Facebook posts so I hope you'll do the same here. I don't want to be talking to myself. My neighbors will think I've been swilling the juice again.
In the meantime, you can participate by telling others about the week long event. Below is a Rafflecopter form that Gwen, the Saint made up for us. I call her the saint because I bugged her endlessly with questions and changes. I am not an easy person to work with--as those of you who've had that misfortune know well.
Prizes: We're not going to ask you to help us out without offering a bodacious bribe. Heavens! That would be uncivilized.
The way I understand it, you get points for every time you tweet, or post on Facebook or your blog. Prizes range from partial edits from Gwen to header or blog badge designs from me.
There will be multiple winners for the blog badges and blog/Facebook header. I will create a custom-designed blog badge or header (depending on which you've won).
Gwen is giving away a 25 page, or 50 page edit, or a formatted novel.
We didn't skimp on the prizes.
Tell your friends and join the Indies 4 Hire Event here. You could win some awesome stuff.
I know the UK is covered in snow and so is part of the US. But the Aussies are enjoying their summer and Malaysia is almost finished with their monsoon season. What did you do this weekend? Were you shoveling snow or wearing shorts?
Do you take advantage of the weather when you can or do you stay committed to your writing cave regardless of the weather?
