some great stuff out there

i miss blogging, but life is still crazy. i'll be flying out of Mesa, AZ and into Missoula, MT for a 2 week vacation in 2 weeks. wow. so rather than writing a brilliant post an interesting post something you might want to read, i'll do what i've done before and tell you about some other posts.

Ellie Garratt is hosting a great Star Trek blogfest. wish i'd had time to participate (especially since we love Trek around here), but oh well. i enjoyed and agreed with the choices in her blogfest post, as well as the posts from Alex J. Cavanaugh and Margo Berendsen.

Christine Danek talks about Write On Con (which i've never attended because i can't handle anymore writing advice right now, but maybe someday) and she led me to a great post that compares the hero's journey to the writer's journey by Elana Johnson.  when i have more time, i'll read through all of it.

and Karen Jones Gowan talks about Commenters, Followers, Lurkers, Posters, Retreaters, Returners, Rereaders, and Repeaters. a great post. i've been all of those.

Have a wonderful vacation. I've been AWOL in blogland myself this summer. Hopefully this autumn will see us all returning with fresh inspiration.

Thanks for the links!

We'll miss you while you're gone and wish you could've participated in today's blogfest. Had to laugh at your comment about your inability to handle any more writing advice!

Aw thank you so much for the mention! And like Alex, I chuckled at your comment about not being able to handle any more writing advice.

Thanks for stopping by my Star Trek post Michelle; and good luck on the trip.

I'm moving too in the next week; but as I've done it too many times over the last 5 years, the clutter is not as epic as yours was. My oldest son assures me it is a one day Uhaul adventure. Sad, really . .

Thanks for all these links; I've been absent from blogger myself lately and missed these posts. I will deinitely check them out.

Have a good trip :)
