Love & Writing.

First I want to say HUGE thank you. Thank you to everyone who tweeted, re-tweeted, blogged, displays the buttons, commented, followed and thought happy thoughts for Operation Awesome's launch. After a day of squeeing like a maniac I fell into bed at 12:30am this morning, after seeing the pitch contest close, with a heart filled with happy. You are all amazing. I'm thrilled to share this journey with you. More awesome will follow...and cookies. There can never be enough cookies. :)

And now, in the spirit of giving back...

The lovely Jessica (a.k.a The Alliterative Allomorph) is holding a contest. Not just any contest, but the chance to save a valuable writing community resource. Jessica will explain:

"This contest isn’t your average contest, folks, and you don't have to write anything to enter. This contest is an attempt to save The Writing Show, an amazing writing resource for us, and if The Writing Show goes bust, I think I’ll just go hide in the corner of my bedroom and cry for a decade. It would be such a shame to lose this amazing resource."

There are lots of amazing prizes, including interviews, critiques, gift cards...and the chance of supporting an awesome resource. All you have to do is make a donation. Just donating $5.00 will get you a PDF of your choice of writing e-book (from the archives of The Writing Show). So hop on over to visit Jessica and check it out.

I saw this contest a week or so back--I had never heard of The Writing Show, but after reading her post went to check it out. It looks like a good resource and this is such a neat thing for her to do.

Good luck with Operation Awesome! :)
