Yay! It’s SAFE FYB week.

It’s the time of year for goodwill to all etc. With that in mind, I’ve decided to start a new December tradition. I’m calling it SAFE FYB week (share a favorite entry from your blog week).

Here’s how it works:

Of all the journal entries you’ve made this year, do you have a favorite? Would you like to share it? If so, send me the title, together with the link and I’ll post those details here on my blog for all my other friends to see. It doesn’t matter what the post is about. If you’re proud of it, that’s good enough for me.

To start things off, here’s my entry from the 8th of August:

A Rejection Letter With a Silver Lining

Promoting Your Work

Not all stories have explosions and car chases. That's why they have espionage and nudity

The Myth of "Finding Your Voice" and How to Develop One (or Two or Three) of Your Own

The Fallacy of the likeable protagonist: a review of The Demon's Lexicon and Corbenic

On Militarism and Tribalism in the Movies

How Pumpkin Pies Are Made


It's taken a lot of years

Not Knowing

How to Use the Short Form to Improve Longer Fiction

Life Lessons from Spanish Class

Thirteen ways in which editing a story is like grooming a new beard

Empty Gestures

Found in a monastery...

Law of Gravity

Have fun looking back through your posts to select a favorite to share, but don’t forget to send me the link when you find it. I’m looking forward to reading your selections.

On an unrelated note
It's the weirdest thing, but lately when some people comment on my journal, I don't get an email telling me, even though I've always got them when those same people commented before. If anyone has any thoughts on why that might be, I'd appreciate hearing them.
UPDATE: Definitely not getting notified about most comments now. very peculiar. I'll see if I can figure out what's happening, but in the meantime, I'll keep checking the actual posts to make sure I don't miss anything.
