A late happy Friday :D because well it´s really Saturday…

It´s actually Saturday so technically I am a tad late but really, if you come to think of it, yesterday´s post was also a happy one 😀 (review of The Fault in Our Stars for the YA Book Club).

I would love to know what made YOU smile last week…

Writing: My flash fiction “Look, don´t touch” made it to the second round of the Campaign Challenge..Thanks again Gina for letting me know! I am so excited and I did a little *happy dance*, especially as I am thinking about expanding it to a full draft at some point. Colin kindly pointed out to the writing contest of Janet Reid to win a copy of Insurgent. I wrote a little something something, now let´s wait and see 😀 There´s still some time and I have read some amazing entries!

Blogging: The YA Book Club is a lot of fun and I´m very happy I have joined. And…did you notice the new layout of my blog? I have tabs now! And I even have a real picture of me (actually two! because the one in my About Me is different)…

SCBWI: I took another big step and joined SCBWI! I am trying to organize a monthly lunch in my area to meet with writers and discuss our craft 😀

So, tell me what made YOU smile this past week?


  1. Jaime says:

    I will be joining in on next month’s book club book (whatever it might be). Glad you enjoyed this one. I too joined SCBWI this past week. It felt like a good thing to do, and I’m happy I did. I’ve been meaning to put a little link up on my blog, but keep forgetting. Have a wonderful weekend, Elodie!

    P.S. Congrats on getting to the second round with your flash fiction 🙂

      Thanks Jaime 😀 It felt indeed right to join SCBWI, a step in the right direction…My goal/dream is to go to a conference next year (maybe the one in NYC)

  2. Colin says:

    Congratulations on making the second round with your flash fiction, Elodie! And thanks for the mention. Your entry for Janet’s contest is really good–certainly a worthy contender! Win or lose these contests are excellent writing exercises, which is why I like to promote them to my writing buddies. 🙂

  3. Good energy, great connections, love how things are manifesting for you Elodie, keep it up.

    Smiling here because its the school holidays and I’m housesitting a chateau with the kids, so a kind of working holiday, but the sun is out, I have my copy of William Maxwell’s ‘The Chateau’ and I’m allowing these old walls to inpsire me.

  4. Kate Coursey says:

    Congrats on getting to the second round! I’ve never been very good at flash fiction….I find it so much more difficult than writing a novel, for some reason.

    And writing first drafts makes me smile!

  5. Jennifer Fischetto says:

    Hi from a fellow campaigner. Congratulations on making it to the second round. That’s awesome news. And congrats are all your other happy things. 🙂

  6. Adrianne says:

    Wow, round two! That’s so excellent. Fingers crossed for you!

    Making me smile this week: writing my first query, getting feedback on it from an agent and a request for pages and completing a 5K race.

Comments put a smile on my face :-)
