Yikes! I am suddenly realising that I am very quickly having to learn to just post straight off the cuff with no pre writing, pre thinking, pre procrastinating or umming and arrring whatsoever….oh so very unlike me! But I guess if I want to try and keep up then so be it. Beth had commented that Jessica on her Imagination to Publication blog had a 2nd Game already in full swing for our Platform-Building Campaign, so I raced over to check it out.
We have to post our first post or our favourite post….. umm yeah okay, I only started in Dec/Jan and it took over two weeks to get me going thanks to an internet friend who had to literally open a new blog herself so she could guide me through the steps and help me set up… boy did I make some BIG blooper mistakes back then. I am forever in her debt. So my hello page is not alot to write home about, but I will give you my second post, re posted here and a link to my favourite post or rather one I was so nervously proud of, an interview I did with a Childrens Author, Illustrator and self publisher living in Hawaii.
Here is my second post;-
As a young girl I loved reading, mostly novels. The Enid Blyton Series of the “Famous Five” was one of my favourites and I would read them over and over again. I had such a passion for horses to. At the Easter show I loved winning the smaller prizes at the two dollar stands. Throwing softballs at wooden blocks or popping small ping-pong balls in the mouths of the head-turning clowns on the side shows, because I would come away with a china horse to add to my growing collection at home (I still have them). Therefore it was no surprise that I also loved “Black Beauty” author Anna Sewell. One thing I do remember very well was a poem that I happened upon (I don’t remember how), while I was in my early teens. I loved its simplicity and I always carried it in the inside cover of my english text book at school. It was called the Desiderata.
My proud moment post:- is at this link here an interview with James Rumford :- https://thepatientdreamer.wordpress.com/2011/05/20/author-interview-james-rumford/
As you can see I am still new at this, and only yesterday learnt how to do the linky thing, (instead of just pressing the auto button) thanks to a couple of online writing mates. Enjoy!
