Wind-down Wednesday

To start off with the post today, I would like to thank Lydia Kang for giving me the awesomesauce award.

I would like to pass it on to:

Okay, now that's out of the way I've decided to change up Wind-down Wednesday's and now it will feature contests and other interesting and amusing links that I've seen out there in the blogosphere.

To start off with, there are numerous contests available out there at the moment:
  • http://writinginthewilderness.blogspot.com/2010/04/tgif-and-contest.html - The prizes that are up for grabs are three gift cards. One for $20 and two for $15 from either Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Borders, winners choice. All you have to do is comment on the post to enter, plus there's other ways of getting more entries.
  • Steph Bowe has a contest over at her blog. She's having a massive book give away with lots of great books up on offer. All you have to do is fill in a simple entry form (piece of cake).
  • Noelle Nolan has a contest called the 150 follower contest and it's not going to close until she has 150 followers. Up for grabs is a $10 Amazon gift card and all you have to do is follow her, plus there's extra entries available as well.
  • Steena & Stina is having a contest for a query critique. All you have to do to enter is be a follower as well as fill in an entry form.
Interesting links for the week:
  • For anyone who likes horoscopes, Paperback Writer has created one especially for writers.
  • Here is a post, over at Hyperbole and a Half, that screams they are irritated by the word "alot" appearing in Manuscripts.
 And just to wrap up another perfect day, here is a trailer of the movie Beastly. It looks killer, and now I just want to read the book before going and watching it:

    OH wow! I heard the book had been made into a movie. The book is supposed to be really good. I can't wait to see the movie, though I kept expecting to see singing dishware in the trailer. ;)

    Thanks for the award. :D
