Paying It Forward Oct 14th

Pay It Forward is the master idea of Matt, better known as MacNash- QQQE, and linked with his good buddy and fellow blogger/writer Alex Cavanaugh! Here are the deets:


  • Spotlight three bloggers I follow
  • Make'em shine & tell you why I enjoy said blogger's company
  • Visit others' recommendations
Easy as pie!!

For my first spotlight, I have to bow, curtsy, and smile. Sharon Mayhew of Random Thoughts is one of the nicest bloggers I know.

All writers are aware of the method of voice while writing:

  • Put voice into that paragraph. 
  • That character needs more voice.
Sharon puts the softest, kindest voice into the messages on her blog. She's a marvelous children's book writer. I admire her a ton. :)

Next would have to be Christina Lee @ Write-Brained. Christina is a freelance and young adult writer with the amazing ability to get her message across in the most concise manner. Within the first few moments of visiting her site, I learn something new or am made to feel good about myself. Now mind you, she never knows who will read her post. But each person feels like she's speaking solely to them. (*waves, Christina*)

For my last highlight, I decided to go all tech on you. K.M.Weiland's Wordplay: Helping writers become authors is a fabulous resource for writers of any genres. Her posts are concise and pinpoint skills each writer needs. The site is a must for every writer, IMHO! You can find her on Facebook, too.

Happy Weekend, Alleywalkers!!

Hearts,
S~

  1. Great choices, Sheri! And thanks for having your post up early. Half the blogs I've visited haven't posted yet. I suppose I should give them some time.

    Thanks for taking part in the blogfest!

  7. OMG! I'm so glad you highlighted KM Weiland. She truly is the MOST valuable tool I've found for writing "reminders." And I love her little guitar-intro'd vlogs. :D I imagine her as the writers' equivalent of that painter guy w/the 'fro. *snort* legendary.

    And yep! I just met Christina. She's a doll. Now to check out Sharon~ Yay, Sheri! Mrs. Maine! <3
