Monday Featured Blog – Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe

‘ello there!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was too short (as always)… Revising is going a bit slow, but I made some progress over the weekend – every little bit helps!

I saw a comedy act with my parents that was actually funny and we watched, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, how great is that title? It was a very cute movie, creative idea, and one of the strangest plots I’ve seen on screen :o)

We have a wonderful featured blog today. The stupendous Shannon over at Ramblings of a Wannabe Scribe – A random collection of thoughts from an aspiring writer. Shannon’s blog has, awesome contests, posts about writing, book recommendations and helpful & informative USC lessons which display her film school knowledge. You can find the latest lesson Here.

She recently interviewed YA author Lisa Schroeder! It was an excellent and informative interview, you can find it Here.

When she’s not in a blog war with Frankie over at Frankie Writes (highly entertaining I must say and both ladies are fantastic, funny and creative bloggers!), She is sharing little bits of her past in her Shannon Shame posts. You can view a little video she made when she was 19 Here and my personal favorite Earth Had a Snack . You don’t want to miss out on either one!

Her Profile Info –

I’m a writer who hopes to someday be a published writer–assuming I can ever finish polishing my current draft. I write and read mostly Middle Grade and Young Adult, because I’m really a big kid at heart. But I also can’t think of any job more fulfilling than getting kids to read. Reading was a HUGE part of my childhood, and it makes me sad to think of how many kids miss out on it. So if even one child reads something I write and decides to give reading a chance I’ll consider it “Mission Accomplished.” Oh, and if you need to reach me, drop me an email: packratx (at) hotmail (dot) com. I love email!

Find Shannon on Twitter as packratx Here

Shannon is a highly energetic blogger. I enjoy every post I’ve read of hers and I know you will too! She is also a super nice person.

By the way, she has 299 followers – let’s make it at least 300 for her! I know I’m not the only one bothered by those dang odd numbers. (Okay, my OCD may be coming out.)

Welp – I hope everyone has a great week! I’ll post this week about more things I’m finding out in this revision process :o) I know – can’t you wait! Ha.

Did you watch the Golden Globes? Ricky Gervais was hilarious :o)

Have a great Monday :o)
