We had a bit of server trouble on drolleriepress.com this evening, so this is a mirror copy of this month’s blog tour post! Enjoy, all!
Hey all, and welcome to the October 2009 edition of the Drollerie Blog Tour! This month’s theme is the lesser-known holiday of Sweetest Day, and we’re taking the opportunity to touch upon the general theme of what the day stands for: those who are encouraging to us. Some of us will be addressing this in terms of our writing, and others? It’ll be our characters.
And without further ado…
Sarah Avery is hosting Heather Ingemar’s post about how her first writing mentor helped her get serious
Nora Fleischer has my own little character vignette about a moment of encouragement in the early life of my heroine from Faerie Blood
On Meredith Holmes’ blog, Heather Parker talks about how a pair of cats and one well-timed remark from her husband gave rise to Middlewitch
Jessica Howe has a guest post from John Rosenman, who wants to give credit to several people who have helped his writing career
Imogen Howson is hosting Catherine Schaff-Stump, who describes her reaction to Sweetest Day
Heather Ingemar has a visit from Fraser Sherman, who sings the praises of people who may surprise you–or not, if you’re a writer yourself
I’ve got Sarah Avery, who tells us about one of the nicest things her husband ever did to assist her writing
At Heather Parker’s blog, Nora Fleischer gives thanks to the first author who ever gave real praise to her work
John Rosenman hosts Meredith Holmes, who thanks several people important to her and her writing efforts
Catherine Schaff-Stump has a post from Jessica Howe, who wants to tell us about the land where her muse has gone to play
And last but not least, Fraser Sherman hosts hosts Heather Ingemar, who finds that Sweetest Day has something in common with her own writing efforts
Thanks again all for reading all our posts. Which, we daresay, is all part of the theme this month!
