A Winner! Where Do We Go From Here??



The results are in!  My hubby was kind enough to do the honors and draw a name the old-fashioned way...from a hat.  The winner of the "Making the Write Connections" survey is:  
                              Teresa Richardson

Congrats, Teresa!  Please use the link here to choose the handmade "Fresh As A Daisy" soap of your choice. When you contact me (jarm@me.com) I'll give you further instructions....



I want to thank everyone for your participation, and, in a way, you have all won.  Your responses will help me build a better blogpost...one that will benefit every writer.  If you are curious about the survey, check it out here. So, what were the results??


The majority voted for A: Mulling it over Mondays...excerpts from books on the craft of writing, for those of you who have little time to spare.

Second in the running C: Thesaurus Thursdays...a list of descriptive words and/or verbs to replace those overused "lazy" words.

A few suggested a combo of A and B(Tricks of the Trade...tips from "Elements of Style", "Writer's Inc." or other grammar guides.)

So, I will be "mulling over" my first post for Mondays.  Here's where you can help.  Which topics are you most interested in?  Where should I begin with "Mulling it Over Mondays"?  Choose one below:


A. Social Media (FaceBook, Blogging, etc)
B. Art of Writing (picture books, novels)
C. Life of a Writer (scheduling time)
D. Craft of Writing (tips and tools)
E. Market Guide info (children's book publishers, links, etc.)

Leave your choice in the comment box, and I will give you another chance to win a bar of handmade soap from "Fresh as a Daisy Soaps".  Below is my "Writer's Bookshelf of Possibilities." Choose the one you would like me to focus on first in my Monday post, and I will enter your name twice in the drawing.

  4. From my experience and observations, the general subject that seems to get more interest and response is anything that has to do with blogging or comments. It's weird. Some of my most seemingly throwaway blog posts have been off the wall postulating and questioning about blogging topics and readers seem to love talking about it. I've seen this on other blogs as well. I guess it ties everyone who is blogging together.

    1. I'll keep that in mind, Arlee...I'll consider that a "social media" vote! Thanks for your input...

  5. I vote for D--Craft of Writing: Tips and Tools. From your shelf my preference would be Roy Clark's 50 Writing Tools. There are so many great nuggets in his book! I always benefit from perusing it.

  9. I have a hard time choosing from your list, but I do like Life as a Writer for Mulling. There's so much you can draw from.
