THIS IS A GUEST POST FROM OUR JULY/AUGUST CONTEST WINNER…..avanguilder1! Please enjoy. Also see this post to get this month’s competition deets.
Dear Readers,                                                                                                                                                      8/26/2011
First, I would like to thank eshy. What an awesome contest and awesome blog.
Next, let me tell a little about myself. I love to write almost anything, including novels, short stories, songs, poems, and diary entries. I play softball and volunteer with my local humane society.
I am starting my own blog. Come check it out. It is called The Writer’s Stop and can be found at:
Finally, I want everyone out there to know that Alpacas rule. There has been some argument over if llamas are better, but I can assure you that they are not. Just ask my invisible alpaca Frank.
Love, Love, Love,


And now my dear readers, is my part of this post. I apologize for my lack of YA and DIY posts. This was an epic fail on my part. But see I don’t like failing, so I’ll definetly be trying those ideas out in future posts. To make up for my horrible fail at organization and outline planning, here’s what I’ll do- a contest, an EPIC contest 😀 oh yeahhhh, with an epic prize.

The third prize option is to do a guest post on my blog if you don’t want to give out your address even if it’ll be private.
