Weekend Hangout #7


It’s been a very quiet week over here — at least on the front end. Where you can’t see me, I’ve been busy getting ready for the upcoming Pennwriters conference, formatting Demo Tapes: Year 3 for print, and trying to work on this week’s Three Word Wednesday prompt. I’ve neglected Win a Book drastically this week; are you sure none of you can chip in and help out? I’d hate to have to close it down, but it’s starting to look like it may be a casualty of a busier life that’s chock full of writing and increased promo.

Anyway, onward to the fun.

By now, you oughta know the drill. In case you don’t, here are the rules:

1. Leave a comment here, on this post. Say hello to me, tell me what you’re reading, what song you’re jamming to, which is your favorite Easter candy… You pick, just say SOMEthing! Leave your link (I can’t get Comment Luv to work regularly) to your blog.

2. Go visit the blog link in the comment above you. Tell them “I’m from West of Mars” and hopefully something nice about their post.

3. When three people have left a comment since your last one, you may play again. If no one’s commented for two hours, you may play again. This is the ONLY time you may visit someone other than the person above you.

4. If you’re new here, your comment will go into moderation. I’m going to try to keep on top of that, but do check back to make sure no one missed you. If you were skipped, leave another comment — even if you break the three-person rule.

5. Be nice. Have fun. Make new friends — that’s what this is all about. And, of course, I operate on the Commutative Principle of Friendships, whereby any friend of yours is a friend of mine. Which means anyone and everyone is welcome to play.

6. Game ends Sunday night, even if I post something again in the meantime. I’m overdue for some fiction, I know.

    Hey, I’m sitting here doing my normal Friday morning thing. I’m watching Supernatural and giving #FF shout outs. Hope your weekend is awesome. 🙂

    I’m reading excerpts from the Scriptures of the East textbook while writing up answers to a take home final for my History of South Asia I class!

    I’m listening to Pandora’s recommendations based on my interest in Neko Case’s music. Some have been great, others a bit eh.

    Hey Susan. I’ve not been doing much this week as I’ve been laid low with tonsillitis. Going to visit who is above me and then come back and read your most recent post 🙂

    It’s my first time joining in here! I’m Nicki and I love pretty much ALL candy – even though I’m meant to be losing weight before my wedding!
    Greetings to all.

    Yo, Rocker Susan! Or Rocker Mommy. Interesting concept you have here. Thanks for inviting me. Since I’m just building my blog, I’ll take some tips from you. OK, I’m off to read Katie’s blog. Bye.

    Hi Susan,
    I haven’t been doing much this weekend, just recovering from editing my latest novel (to be published soon!).
    On my blog this week, Marty Beaudet is giving away a copy of each of his books! Anyone who leaves a comment there will be entered to win.


    I’m off to check out Stuart’s blog 🙂
