about the campaign, goals, and this awesome thing called "doing the work."

First and foremost, if you haven't entered to win a signed copy of Article 5, and you would like to, click here! Kristen Simmons is a dear friend, so let's keep supporting her. {Note: the more entries I get on this giveaway, the more winners there will be!}

To all my new Campaign friends and followers and soon-to-be friends, hello!

I have a quick something to say. I've decided {just now this very second}, that until the official Campaign start date next week, I am going to take a mini-break from blogging. Kind of an awkward time, I know, but it's for a good reason.

I'm writing again. For reals. Like, with goals and everything. And if I could take that Blogger icon down from my bookmarks, even if it's just for a handful of days, that would be really helpful.

I will still be doing my Campaign-ly duties, of course. Just not until next week.

To tide you over, here's the song that pretty much epitomizes everything I want my main character to be:

The mood is a little chippy, but seriously, even the title {"Attaboy"} is perfect.

Okay, here I go.


  1. I'm a fellow Campaigner form the MG/YA group. Taking part is so much fun. I was in it last time.

  2. Julie, I couldn't see the guys actually playing at the link, but can at

    Love you!

    1. I know, I chose the video without movement on purpose; watching the guys play distracts me from the story. The live version *is* really awesome, though.

  3. Go for it Julie, write like the wind and we'll see you next week :-)

  4. Good luck with your writing! Enjoy! And it's great to meet you, even if you are on a little break! I look forward to your posts when you come back!

  5. Hi Julie!

    I think we shared a campaign group (or two!) for the last round as well, and I'll be honest I haven't kept up with everyone! So, I'm making my rounds again for Round 4!

    I don't blame you for taking a break at all! I'm currently trying to get as many blog posts pre-written as I can, since I start a new job on Monday. The more I get done now, the less I have to worry about later!

  6. I should probably do the same, I think I am becoming addicted to this blogging! Hope to catch up through the campaign, I'm also from the getting larger, fantasy group!

  7. Have a great break! Looking forward to hearing all about the book :)

  8. Good luck writing! Stopping by from the Campaign to say hello!

  9. Hi again! Hope your break has been a good one. Just wanted to let you know you've been tagged on my blog! Here's the link:

    Happy question answering. :)

  10. I'm just bouncing through from Amber's blog and I really wanted to say I. love. the Goat Rodeo Sessions. So great. :D

  11. Glad you're writing! I love Yo-Yo Ma! Did you see this group on Stephen Colbert? It was funny.

    I have an award waiting for you when you come back to Blogger! :)

  12. Hi, just found your blog through a friend's... I guess not at the best time, since you're taking a break. :) But I wish you lots of productive writing time!

  13. Woohoo, writing trumps blogging any day!

    Nice to meet you! Fellow Campaigner and new follower here! ^_^

  14. Hi! I'm a new follower from the campaign. Nice to meet you. :)
