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?

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)
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. 🙂
Thanks again Colin 😀 Those contests are indeed quite fun and they are indeed wonderful writing exercises…
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.
Thank you so much Claire 😀
Wow! A chateau? Old walls are just fascinating…imagine everything they heard!
Still not ready to join yet, but in the future, for sure. Congrats on making it to the next round of the campaign!! What made me smile this week? A breakthrough on my wip.
Thanks Traci and congrats on the breakthrough!
Congrats on making it through to the next round! 🙂
Thanks C.B. 😀
You will love SCBWI. It’s such a great organization!
It felt right to take that step and it does sound wonderful!
SCBWI is amazing. I’ve met many writer friends through that organization, and they have amazing events and conferences.
Congrats on making it to the next round with your flash fiction!
Thanks Ghenet 😀
SCBWI does sound great and I´m looking forward to get involved!
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!
Thanks Kate 😀 It´s one of my first flash fictions…so I´m quite excited!
Writing first drafts is definitely smile-worthy!
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. 🙂
Hi Jennifer 😀 Thanks! I´m super excited about this 😀
It made me smile to see an actual picture of you! Two, even! You are freaking adorable. And congrats on making it to the second round!
Awwww….Thanks Peggy! 😀 You´re too sweet!
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.
Thanks Adrianne! 😀
You had a pretty impressive week…lots of reason to smile!
