Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 2:26 PM



Hi all, thought I would do an update as I also need to advertise some groups and things.
Firstly though, updates:


My book is waiting the barcode and blurb to be attached to the cover image and then I need to email the printer. I am just too terrified to do it. It's like a form of writer's block. But I will have to do it sometime soon - will keep you updated.


I have a new PC, sans graphics card, as mine finally died completely. It works wonderfully and I lub it. So now, one might assume, I can do work for my business that I am trying to start up [ www.haystaxx.co.za ]...however I have two problems that stem into one. Both laptops are dead (One has a 'fan error' and one won't switch on and when it does it uses a blank screen that is not connected to anything). Guess where all my emails and setup plans and everything are...on the laptops. So I will have to start everything again on here. Le-Sigh.


:new: I have updated products on the Website for my mother's knitting (Christel's Kneedles - www.christelsneedles.weebly.co… -) so go and have a peek at the new kiddies products and body products that we offer.
:new: I have also updated the WIP's on the Painted Linen site [ www.paintedlinen.weebly.com ] so go check out the monster truck t-shirt order.


Now for groups:
:iconmy-soul-bleeds-ink:
My-Soul-Bleeds-Ink is currently hosting another forms challenge, this one being the Monotetra. Check out our journal to become advised of times and such things. Enter if you wish, the more the merrier. :heart: We are also looking for some more admins, which is why I am saying this here because [most] of you guys are people that I trust.
:iconadopt-a-writer:
Adopt-A-Writer is currently looking for more people to mentor. Our mentor box is empty whilst the mentee box is still full from ages past. So if you know of someone, let them give me a shout or just fill in the form and I will email them with a match. If you are a mentor you get matched pretty quickly.
:iconunderstood-accepted:
Understood-Accepted is desperately looking for points donations to keep it a supergroup. donations can go straight onto the widget on MagicalJoey 's (i.e. my) home page. Alternatively, if you have no points to spare, consider noting me [ MagicalJoey ] with any contests that are Literature based where points are offered as prizes.
:icongrammarnazicritiques:
GrammarNaziCritiques is looking for a couple of things:
:bulletred: More prose pieces to critique - the folder is getting thin.
:bulletorange: More poetry critics - we have mostly prose critics, after the unfortunate loss of some members, but a very full poetry folder.
Don't worry if you are new to the business, we will help you along. Requirements I hear you say? They go as follows:
:bulletyellow: Critique minimum 2 pieces per month. Should you have more time you are welcome to go ahead and critique as many as are available.
:bulletgreen: You may submit your own work for critique.


Any questions? I am here to answer.

I'm a relatively simple person who likes to write. I value honesty, especially in comments and critiques, and loyalty.

If you are going to fave something of mine it would be nice if you could leave a comment as well. It is not required, but feedback is always welcome.

If you need to talk about anything feel free to note me.
