Hello all! I have some updates and news for you today, and also a movie review up next. 🙂
First off, I did something kind of intimidating today.
I joined…. Twitter….
Lol, why is that intimidating, you ask?
Because I have no idea what I’m doing, or what all I’ll tweet about as of yet. But, as always, I just kind of threw myself into it. 😀
It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. As I get closer to self-publishing my first collection of stories, I figure I really need to get on the whole self-promoting and networking thing. Which, lol, I am really, really bad at. So this is going to be an adventure. 😀
I’m going to play around with it for a while and figure out how to promote myself on there. Have any tips for a noob Twitter-er?

Next week I shall have another chapter ready for you guys. And I have a couple more movie reviews I’m working on as well. Lol, I’m having a lot of fun with those.
Also, in case you haven’t already heard – *deep breath, attempting to maintain calmness* – I learned from the fabulous Jae, over at Lit and Scribbles, that The Jim Henson Company is having a contest!
*keeps a death-grip on the calm*
The Jim Henson Company is looking for a prequel to The Dark Crystal.
I loved this movie when I was a kid – lol, and I still do. 🙂
They’re accepting submissions starting October 1’st, until December 31’st, for a 7,500-10,000 word piece. Either a few chapters or a short story that would be the inspiration for a novel, 50,000+ words. It’ll be in the Young Adult genre.
Now there is one thing that’s worrying people – you will be giving up the rights to your piece once they have it in their hands. Please read the fine print carefully before submitting, and make sure you’re comfortable with it.
Here is the website so you can check it out for yourselves (the rules are at the bottom): The Dark Crystal Author Quest
The way I’m thinking of it, even if I don’t win, and they choose to use something I’ve written anyway, I would get some kind of credit for that, right? Lol, it would be something to add to my writing resume at least. 🙂 I’m going to re-read the rules and make sure I understand what I’m getting myself into, but I’m probably still going to just dive in, lol. Wish me luck! 😀
My inner child is freaking out right now, lol. Full-scale, epic level geek-out. 😄
Good luck to all of you who want to participate!
Until next time, Happy Writing and Take Care! 🙂
