Two reminders and a Woot!

First the reminders:

SAFE FYB week (share a favorite entry from your blog week) ends on Tuesday. If you have a favorite post from your journal post that you'd like to share, let me know the title and link and I'll add it to the ones already there.

The Meager Puddle of Light Award for Best Opening Line.
Voting is underway. If you'd like to pick your favorite from the ten finalists, please follow the link.

"And what about the 'Woot!'?" you ask.
Well, a few people have told me I should think about turning my series on The Fine Art of Self-Promotion into a presentation. I decided that might be fun, so I put out a couple of feelers. Yesterday, I got an email from those nice folks at the GLVWG (a PA-based writing group), asking if I'd like to come and speak to their group next November.

It's not a story or book sale, but it's definitely good for a 'Woot!' in my book

It's true that a British accent is always an asset with an American audience, but you also have the experience to back up those pear-shaped tones with some good info! Woot, woot!

On the "my fav blog post" I have a distinct sense of deja vu. Did you do something like this before? I wouldn't want to repeat myself.

Thank you :)

You're probably thinking of I.P.A.F.P.F.Y.O.J.O.J.B. Day (International Pimp a Favorite Post From Your Own Journal on Jon’s Blog Day), which was back at the start of August, but that was for any blog and not limited to an entry from this year.

You shared 'Riding a BC all the way to an SF' with us then. Feel free to use it again, or share something different. I know you have lots of great posts to choose from :)

Ah! That was it! OK, here is one from this year that I really liked. As it happened, I got zero comments on it, so maybe this will be a second chance for it.

Found in a monastery, June 3, 2009.

An interesting post. I'm surprised I missed it, the first time around :)
