I'm sitting next to April, again reading in Blogland while she asks me how to start a blog. I explain it to her. She is off and writing! While I read ANWA's Blog, Anne Bradshaw's Blog, Martha's other blogs, Jessica's blog...April posts two...yes, two stories to her new blog.

Yes, the competition is fierce! I have my list of potential blog posts sitting on our computer desk while she steals one of my best stories right out of my head! All I can say is there is the quick and the unpublished.

Lost in Blogland

The last 2 weeks I've had the best of intentions of updating my blogs, but to no avail. First, every time I get on to do it, I get lost in blogland. It has been a real distraction. Not that I think anyone is even reading my blogs. I don't blame you if you're not because I haven't put anything new on them. I don't know how the people who blog regularly do it! They probably don't get lost in blogland!
But, having said that, tonight, I found a couple of really neat blogs. One is, which is American Night Writer's Association. I'm so excited. It is a group of LDS women writers who support each other in their writing aspirations. Some are published, some are beginners. The founder is from Mesa. They have meetings, a newsletter, and social groups to help. The reason I found them was because I was wondering if anyone could google my name and tender mercies to find my blog. On the third page of the search results was a link to ANWA with a tender mercy story . I liked the story and the link. But better than that, I am going to join ANWA and see if I can work on some of my stories I have floating around in my head.
The second link I really enjoyed was that of Anne Bradshaw's
Not Entirely British blog. She has some great stuff on her blog. My favorite was the Mom Song from Youtube. It is great. I do need to memorize this because then I can sing it to my children first thing in the morning and not have to speak to them the rest of the day.
