Post: Shout-Out: Impossible!



You know that classic cartoon antic when character's eyes pop out of their heads in various disproportional ways? That's about what happened when I opened the blog this morning. I don't know what's going on, but thank you for being awesome! So awesome in fact, I don't think it's possible to give a shout-out to all of our forty-four new members!

Seriously. I'm that blown away.

But a motto of mine is "Promises Take Precedence," so I'm about to do the impossible: Shout-Out: Impossible! I'm gonna to need a little help with this one, Ethan...

 
"I got your back, Dave!"

If you have the time, please visit our latest members! (If I didn't link you, that means I could not find your blog--if you have one, let me know in the comments).

Wow! That was epic! Thank you all so much for joining the cosmic forces of this writing laire. Many of you are fellow campaigners, and I look forward to following up.

I would've asked Hal to help me with this shout-out instead, but we don't exactly collaborate all that well.

"I'm sorry, Dave..."

Update: A couple more rejections. And a full! I'll report more on that awesome story soon, if and when I can. 

Some of you have already emailed me samples to critique and asked questions. That's awesome! I will respond to your samples when the giveaway is over.


I'm David, and you were hard to find, but worth it!

  43. Quirky post, made me laugh:) At work we jokingly banned the word "epic" because it got overused. Books and movie can be epic, but not a salad for lunch;)

  45. Hi, Dave! Fellow campaigner and new follower here. You may be interested to know that my PC desktop is a picture of HAL, complete with a custom-made "just what do you think you're doing, Dave" sound theme. If you're not interested, then please forgive the presumption, because I'm a dork.

  46. Congratulations.

    I'm at niiganab.blogspot. I didn't realize there were two profiles with this Google site. WalksFar is another of my names.

    I tried to get to everyone in my groups because the Google Connect was doing a different profile from the one on my blog. It's been corrected. There were a few that I missed. Thanks for the heads up.
