Yay! It’s the start of M&M Week


Back in May, I thought it might be fun to host some kind of networking tea and crumpets/soda and chips event here on An Englishman in New Jersey, where people could meet other folks with the same kind of writing interests. 

I called it Mix and Mingle week.

It was a lot of fun, so I thought I'd do another one.

Here’s how it works:
I’m very lucky to have lots of talented, wisdomous, writerly friends. Many of these good people share common interests, but don’t know each other...yet. Not all of them are on Live Journal. Some have accounts (or in the case of LJ users, additional accounts) on Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot etc.

If you’re interested in making some new writer friends, share a few words about yourself and your writing, along with a link to your website, Wordspace, Blogspot, Facebook, Twitter accounts etc. where folks can find out more about you and your work, then add/follow/friend you on the relevant platforms if they so desire.

If you don’t have an LJ account, you can still take part via an anonymous comment, but don’t forget to include your name. 

Of course, it’s up to you, but this is ‘Mix and Mingle’ not ‘Find a Fan’ week, so I recommend sticking to general info: how long you’ve been writing; what you usually blog about; preferred genre; favorite authors etc. 

As for me, I’m looking forward to finding out more about my friends. 

Have fun. Now, where did I put those teabags?

I love this idea! I don't have a lot of time for LJ anymore, but I'm trying to rekindle my enthusiasm for blogging. I'd love to meet new people. Only... I'm not all that interesting. I blog about horses (I have three mustangs), dogs (I have a Great Dane and a white German Shepherd), books I've read and enjoyed (I try to avoid negative reviews, although the occasional snark entertains me greatly), and life here on the farm. I'm homeschooling my daughter for the first time this year, so sometimes I blog about our learning adventures. I am also a writer, and while I've been pretty private about my projects, I feel like maybe it's time to open up about my ambitions and experiences and progress. So... yeah. Here I am. ::ducks head and drinks tea, trying not to blush::

Home schooling must be hard work.

Sounds cool. When I have a chance I blog about writing, my promotional efforts, and Bad-Ass faeries...but then that goes back to the promotional efforts.

Sounds like you have a fascinating setting for homeschooling your daughter in, particularly biology and natural science :)

Enjoy it.

What grade is your daughter? I was homeschooled through middle/high school and would love to do the same with my daughter. But elementary school intimidates me!
