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?

Mmmmm.... M&Ms...
Anyone on your flist who might flist me
almost certainly already has;
Likewise, anyone on your flist who might read or buy anything I've written
almost certainly already has.

But have I mentioned that I'm the
patron saint of the anomalously sexual and gendered?

Re: Mmmmm.... M&Ms...
After I became Catholic,
I noitced that we have patron saints for almost everything.
Nations/nationalities have patrons,
cities and occupation have patrons,
professions, disabilities and ilnesses have patrons.
But no patron of homosexuals, bisexuals, transsexuals, or transgendred.
And I realized this was because there was no saint who wanted
that constituency.
So I requested it,
and God granted my request.
I can't be canonized until some time after I die,
but that's a mere formality, really.
