March Madness X 2

*
Who loves prizes?
Who loves motivation?


me! me! me!

what, you too?


Good
, because today I have two great March Madness links for you.


The first is here at Denise Jadon's page.
Her group of pals have put together a super give away that is tied to a mini nano. You set the goal and then check in with them daily. Each check in earns you another point towards a super raffle at the end of the month.

they're giving away books plus query and ms critiques!

If you're like me and need a little kick in the pants on the WIP, click over.
My goal is to finish my WIP this month. I'm only half way through, but it's all plotted.

and, the second March Madness link is just as fun -- with no writing required! It's over at Sara McClung's blog. She's giving away five really cool prize packages for nothing but a follow.


And -- mark Friday to check back. We got our 200th blog supporter this week (amazing anyone at all would take the time to listen to my ramblings) and I'm doing a week of twos (two book reviews Mon, two links today and two great prizes on a Free Stuff Friday).


Questions: Anyone interested in a mini Nano? It's not too late to join us! If not, that's cool. What are your goals right now?

Whoa, 200 Followers! Woo-hoo, Tess.

My goals . . . well, hop over to my blog because I listed most of them in today's post (which was written yesterday). Yeah, that's the easy way out.

So . . . finish my current WiP (almost there, just a few more chapters), write a query, land an agent, revise the next project in line, write a new project . . .

Tess, best of luck and all good wishes on finishing the WIP this month! Sort of a personal March Madness, huh? :-)

Ooh, I'm in! This is a great idea and I'm trying to finish the WIP by the 31st anyway. Thank you, Tess!

Prizes! Motivation! March! Woo-hoo!! I'm actually really motivated this month. Don't ask me why. Maybe it's the fact we've had two sunny days in a row and no snow for a week! But, hey, the month is young.

A mini-nano may be just the thing for me. I need the accountability check of something like that right now.

Amy Saia said...

Cool links and congrats!!

Congratulations on reaching 200! You're awesome, Tess! And thanks for the links to cool contests. =]

Amy Allgeyer Cook said...

200! Yay!! My goal this week is to get the city to allow us to move three walls off an existing foundation for two days and put them on a new foundation, without considering that a violation of the historic preservation guidelines. oh. joy.

Mary Aalgaard said...

Congrats on all your lovely followers. You're a superstar! I need to get my rhythm back, then I'll consider the challenge.

Jenn Johansson said...

March feels funner now, thanks! Also, I'm follower number 201! I'm surprised I wasn't already following you. But 201 is fun. :)

Crystal said...

Congratulations, Tess! 200 followers is AWESOME!

Thanks for the contest links. . . . I'm still trying to finish my MG novel (my ten-year-old's like, "You've been working on it since I was 8!"--yes, sad to say, it's true). So I want to be DONE by at least end of April. Then I want to start sending queries . . . Pray that I stick to these goals . . . :)

Tess said...

Some great goals .. and, I'm happy to see a few of you might be joining us in our March Madness mini-nano. the great part is that we set our own goals for the month and it doesn't necessarily have to be a completed, full ms. Good luck to us all!!

Susan Fields said...

Congrats on 200 followers, Tess! Woo hoo! My goal right now is to finish this current rewrite of my WIP. I'm dying to finish it so I can show it to some people and find out if it (to quote Amy) "sucks rocks."

ali said...

Hmm. My goals right now? To finish my WiP. I need more TENSION. Oy.
