THE WRITER'S ALLEY BLOGOVERSARY!! (Giveaways inside ↓↓↓)

One year ago today five crazy writers got together and decided to start a blog for other writers. We just wanted to have a bit of fun and share the journey with all of you. WOW! One year later we are twice as big, boast over THREE HUNDRED posts with writing related topics and just as many fans (YOU!).

We're keeping it short and sweet today. And below you'll see a survey we would really LOVE for you to fill out on how we can make the Alley better. AND once you do that, please leave a comment for a chance to be a winner of a book! We don't know how many yet we are giving away (more than one, more than two, probably more than three!).

Don't be shy, we are so grateful for YOU ALL!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY WRITER'S ALLEY!!!

(regular programing will return on Monday with a full slate of posts from the creative minds behind the Alley. :-)

You ALL are blessings!!
