CALLING ALL WRITERS...

"This a public access announcement...

"Please stayed tuned for a completely novel approach to networking...

"ARE YOU one of those writers who is terrified not to let anyone read your work? Scared that, perhaps, someone might SNATCH your brilliant premise or idea away from you?

"OR, ARE YOU not willing to share your BRILLIANCE with other writers?

"ARE YOU, perhaps, terrified of SUCCESS?

"OR, ARE YOU, just plain TOO SHY?

"The answer my friends is READ THIS BOOK..."

SHOW YOUR WORK

10 ways to share your creativity and get discovered.

by

Austin Kleon



"It's about getting FINDABLE...

"About using the network instead of waisting time 'networking'

"Embrace your communal nature of creativity- your 'ecology of talent...'"

Hi, Everyone, when I found this book on Goodreads last week. It hit me like a kick from a mule. Austen Kleon is a NYTimes best seller and we ALL need to read what he has to say about getting ourselves out there. I can't wait to read this book and learn how to get my "talent" discovered. 

We should all have a copy of this in our personal library...

As a matter of fact, I think I will treat myself to a copy for my birthday! Weeee another year older. But to me it's another year of learning my craft, connecting with all of my AWESOME peeps in the blogosphere and another year closer to PUBLICATION! 

Writers are AGELESS... never forget it! 

SO have a birthday cupcake and some champagne and keep the PARTY GOING! WE ALL have something to celebrate... JUST ONE MORE DAY to COMPLETE THIS CHALLENGE....YAY!!!!!!!

I've tried to blow out this candle but can't! LOL.



CELEBRATE LIFE!!!


QUICK GET A GLASS!

See you all tomorrow!

  15. Happy happy birthday! I like those kinds of cupcakes; less fattening. ;o) Looks like a great book! I got a book last week called EVERYDAY BOOK MARKETING from a local bookstore; the author (Midge Raymond) gave an informative talk. It promises to have likewise good tips!

  19. Raising a toast to you, *clink*!
    Yeesh, this book certainly sounds like what I need. I'm cripplingly shy about sharing my work but getting better as of the last year and hoping to improve in the coming one. Your blog has become such a nice writerly haven to come to and will surely help me reach this shared goal. :)
