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?

Oh! I LOVE goofball tilts! Always look for the twist, I say!

Any which theatre? I work in Philly and have a friend that works at the Walnut Street Theatre and Forrest Theatre. Ironically enough, I'm headed over there after work tonight for a visit.

Ah! Odyssey?

Jeff is my best friend. Nice to meet one of his circle. Couldn't have accomplished half of what we have without his help. Not to mention he keeps me sane through the chaos.

In addition to this LJ account we have the shared badassfaeries account as well, just fyi.

Are you going to Philcon? If so, be sure to look me up. I don't know if Jeff will be able to come down, but I can usually be found in the dealer's room or on panels.

So, you know Lawrence Schoen, too, I would presume?

Nice--and often scary--to see how interconnected we all are.

Glad to know we'll get a chance to meet at Philcon. In your back yard, huh? Are you in Philly or Jersey? I'm about ten minutes from the hotel, in Stratford, NJ.

Oh! You know, he mentioned you too, when we were having a conversation about critique groups. I don't have much luck with them because either they are too far away or those I find have too uneven an experience level.

Well! Nice to meet you and I look forward to seeing you at Philcon.

Excellent...and I just found out that Jeff is going to try and come down for that Saturday.

As long as the con doesn't have a senior moment, we should be having a website launch party Saturday night.
