Nomination, Members, Writing Nook!


I was recently nominated by ecollegefinder.org for The Top Writing Blog Award, a cool surprise and honor!

See that little button over there?     ----------------->

If you click it, you will be guided to a place where you can cast a vote for as many blogs as you want, as many times as you want, until Feb 3rd. There's many great nominees there. So, if you think my blog (or anyone else's) is cool enough, a vote would be awesome!

You can read my post for students here.

Much thanks, ecollegefinder fellows!

Update: I had to put Dragon's on hold for a different project last week. If all goes well, it'll be at 20K by the end of the week. Or more, if able. Also, I had the chance to visit an LTUE planning meaning. I'll tell ya - there's a lot of awesome going on. Can't wait for Feb 9th!

February is almost here! What have you accomplished this month? What's the plan next month?

I'm David, and this is where the magic happens ...

10 points if you can find Yoda!

  1. Too tiny - can't see Yoda.
    And I have big plans for next month!

  2. Top right corner if you are facing the desk. I so wish I could go to LTUE but it's not in the cards this year. Off to vote for you.

  5. I see Yoda up there on the right. And I see a Viper Probe Droid, a bottle of Elmer's wood glue, and...is that a feather duster?

  6. Found him! And congrats on the nomination :-)

  8. Congratulations on your nomination. Your title led me to believe there was some talk of the Nook here but I'm looking over your post and don't see anything. I have a Nook. I was just wondering if you were going to post some relevant info or something for the Barnes and Noble device.

    1. I was meaning my writing nook, pictured at the end. Didn't mean to mislead you. And thank you! :)

  9. Congrats on the award. And yay for the new project. January has been an extremely busy month and I've gotten a ton of stuff accomplished. Here's to February.

  10. January sort of swept on by, but now without making some progress. You have quite the organized writing nook there. Keep making the magic happen.

    And you've already got my vote.

  11. Threw a vote your way. :) As for the follow.. had to do it, way too much good stuff here with just the links and resources you mention, let alone the inspiration you provide to those of us new to the craft. Feel like I should be thanking you. Great writing space, but how in the world do you stay focused with rambunctious kids and no door?

  12. I love the Animaniacs picture on the wall!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks for the mention...voted for you although it could knock me out of the running, LOL!

    Have a great week.

  14. Thanks for the link - and for your lovely comment earlier - made my day! Good luck with the nomination!

  15. Love the Animaniacs. Are those the lyrics to the opening song around them?

    Thanks for the SO/Link. Much appreciated.

    1. It's the storyboard to Dot's "I'm Cute," a nice gift from my aspiring animation days. And thanks, man!

  16. and oopps...forgot to say: Mazel Tov on the nomination!

  17. Yay! Sent a vote your way! (that rhymed, eh) Haha, I'm done.

    You see, I've managed to lose my mind in the month of January. Perhaps I will find it in the month of February, but things aren't looking good. :)

  18. Found Yoda!

    I also really dig your Animaniacs art. One of the best shows ever. Glad to be aboard!

    (your office is far cleaner than mind)

  19. So many new friends! Yay!

    This month...I started querying and have gotten four requests out of six sent! Crazy, crazy response. I'm super excited. But don't want to be too excited. I'm expecting 'nos' but looking forward to any and all feedback they have for me.

    Congrats on the nomination!!! You SO deserve it!

  20. Great job on the nomination! I'm going to check that out and vote.
    Thanks for stopping in and for the shout out! I hope you will come and visit during the A to Z month of April. It should be lots of fun!

  21. I will vote for sure.

    Working on wrapping up a third draft. Need to fine new beta readers that are MALE. I hate to discriminate, but my 2nd draft betas were all women. Which is not a bad thing at all, but my book does have pirates, ninjas, and samurais. Oh, and steampunk.

    I have an April 30 deadline to my publisher to meet.

  22. WOW!! Your blog keeps getting bigger and bigger! It's awesome! And I am so excited for LTUE. I won't be there Thurs, but I'll be there Fri & Sat. :) *squee!*

  23. Thanks, David, for the shout out! Appreciate you stopping by my blog and commenting, too. Congrats on the eCollege nomination!

  24. I did find Yoda. The force guided me.

    My plans for next month are complex. Outline last year's NaNoNovel and start the rewrite (yes, it was rubbish. But I have heaps of ideas!) Start a uni course, continue with homeschooling, try to keep up with music obligations (just about every day) and breathing. Yes, breathing is good.

  25. Aaargh, I've been lured into a lair and can never leave!!! (No wait, it's only the hotel California I can never leave. Phew)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats on the nomination!!! That's awesome :) I'll go vote for you know :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. AH, finally I can comment again. My computer was in a funk where I couldn't comment on your cool posts.

    I voted for you. Seriously, I did. I think your blog is very informitive about writing. Great job doing that.

  30. Sorry, not sure where Yoda is. I did see the bottle of Elmer's glue.

    I've never had a study or work area like that. I've always wrote in the oddest places: in my car, during lunch at work, sitting outside, at the kitchen table, sitting in bed. I do have a desk for my computer, thank goodness.

  31. Congrats on the nomination. And I love your writing space. Mine's just at our dining room table we rarely each at.

  32. I think I see yoda... not sure though. He's pretty small, though :)

    Congrats on the nomination!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I voted for you! Congrats! And I'm hoping to make it down for at least one day of LTUE....I'm sure it's going to be awesome!

  34. Thanks for the shout out, David!
    Congratulations on your nomination!
    Cannot see Yoda :( It must be tiny.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi David... Its great to meet another MG author.

    I could not find Yoda. Thanks for the shout out. Congrats on the nomination and the new followers. I already voted for you. Will vote again and again for bloggers I know :)

  36. Just a question. I've written a post about my ebook disaster for my blog. It necessarily mentions you (in a very good light of course). Is that ok with you? I haven't published it yet, and if you don't like the idea, I won't post it.

    1. I'm cool with it. If it's for what I think it is, that would be a good topic! :)

  38. Congratulations again on your nomination! I'm pretty sure I said it before... If not, well, congrats for the first time. hehe.

    I've achieved all my goals this month, even if I've felt at times like I was slacking. So, despite that slacking feeling, I'm content.

    ReplyDelete
  39. YAHHY! I can leave comments again :)

    Hey Dave, awesome is as awesome does (in response to your comment on my "mattress-stopping fall" It's sweet to know I'm not the only one :)

    PS. Congrats on the nomination... have voted, going back for more. GOOD LUCK!

  40. Ooh, ooh, is Yoda the little green blob sitting in front of the printer (think it's a printer) on top of the shelf on the right?
    (Promise I didn't look at anyone else's comments ;-) )
    Congratulations on the nomination, and hello 20 new people :-)
