Gussying Up

Wanted things to look nice around here as I joined the Platform Building Campaign over at Rach Writes. It's a crash course in this whole network and blog world and I thought it would be a great way to jump into the deep end with my hot pink water wings firmly in place.

Plus, I get a sweet badge for participating and you know I like that kind of business!

So shiny!

Now we mingle, play blogging games, and scratch each other's blogs between the ears. As I am used to collaborating with many artists at a time in my day job, this will be a welcomed boost to only collaborating with the voices in my head. Not that they aren't entertaining.

Oooo - don't be scared new writer friends.
I am just as normal as you.
Looking forward to meeting you in my courage zone (smooches to Bob Mayer)
Now I must finish my cow choreography.

Hi Kate,

Glad to see you joined the campaign. Your story looks interesting. Looking forward to more of it. How much of it are you planning on posting?

Emilia Quill said...

"I am just as normal as you."

That would mean odd in a delightful way.
Stopping by to have a look at your blog as well. Looks cool =)

Kate Swenson said...

Thank you for the many delightful messages fellow Campaigners.

@Ken I am just posting the first 25 pages and Chase's chapter was the last one. They were my submission to the PNWA writing contest where I was a fantasy finalist. :)

Shelley Koon said...

Just a heads up, I have set up a Google Reader with all of YA Group 10 in it to help organize all of our blogs - I am missing 2 people (technical issues I am trouble shooting) but hope to get them added in soon! Link is:
