Weekend Round Up...Alley Cat Style

Photo by savit keawtavee

Hello Friends! Happy Weekend to you!

I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to summer. Now some of you might be wondering how in the world you are going to have time to write once the kids are out of school and running around the house from sun-up to sun-down, but there is something about summer that puts one into "slow-mode". Some of you can sleep later. Some of you get to stay up later. Some go on vacations. Some do stay-cations. There is much to be said for slow summer days, and to get you in the mood, we have some awesome posts for you this week!

The Weekly Line Up

Monday - Angie is starting off the week with a wonderful post entitled "A Writer's Heart Experience".
Tuesday - Julia will be sharing how contest judging can help you grow in your writing.
Wednesday - Karen's post is "The Telling Detail" to add those rich details that make characters and settings come to life.
Thursday - Ashley has something up her sleeve and is sure to please!
Friday - Amy is writing a "Bad Romance" and going Lady Gaga on some fiction. I'm sure you won't want to miss that!

And The Winner Is....
