Lynda R. Young's Great Aussie BBQ is NOW!
One important requirement of writing is to step back and enjoy life. We need the time to mingle, to enjoy a day once in a while without the pressure to produce words. This time is like a battery. It recharges our creativity, our motivations and dedication to our work.
So here's what you do:
1. Follow my blog
2. Leave a comment here. Introduce yourself and your blog and let everyone know what virtual food or drink you've brought along to share.
3. Pop back often over the extra long weekend to meet new people.
4. Choose at least three commenters and visit their blogs. If you like what you see, follow their blogs and leave a comment, introducing yourself and the virtual food you'd like to share. The more blogs you visit, follow and comment on, the more others will return the favour. You'll get out of it what you put in.
5. Invite more to the BBQ. All welcome! Send invites out on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ because the bigger a party gets, the better it becomes.
I'll go first:
Hi, my name is Lynda R. Young (I'm not going to tell you what the R stands for). I write YA novels along with speculative short stories. My blog offers writing and blogging tips. I've brought to the party a huge bowl of mango salad with roasted macadamia nuts. Yum.
Note: A huge thanks to Karen Gowen for the brilliant idea. There's a special place at the table for you.
Please note: It's not too late for the BBQ. The party will continue all weekend.
