Hi Ellen. Thanks for the welcome. I think looking up a person's favourite novel is a great way to find people here! Glad you took the quiz and ended up as Anne Elliot. I was a bit surprised to end up as Elizabeth Bennett, but I'll take it!
Hi Ellen. I do Love Jane Austen a bit too much! Lol. Your sweet to comment on my profile pic. It's my book cover. It's a ya children's type book, but if you'd like to read it I'll gladly gift you a copy. The book is called Rian of the Elves: Welcome to the Spire. I was a fine art major (which proves useless until now). But thanks for noticing it.
I think it's a great idea to search people by their book loves. I might just steal that idea. You're a doll. Thanks for writing.
He is considered the most innovative of the Brazilian modernists. Besides having been a precursor of the Tropicália movement and of the "marginal poetry" of the 70s, de Andrade wrote three major manifestos: the Pau-Brasil Poetry Manifesto (1924), Pau Brasil (1925) and the Anthropophagic Manifesto (1928). He also introduced Brazilian literature to experimental prose with Memórias Sentimentais de João Miramar (1924).Visit me plase: http://nelsonsouzza.blogspot.com Thanks! Have a nice day!
Great - I look foreward to more doggy delights! I have a jack russell - he's so funny - he's like my son!
I used to blog about writing my books previously but I got bored and didn't think it worked for me (or my readers probably!) I may blog the odd article about writing in the future but for now my intention is to link my posts to subjects in the news etc and put my own chick lit take on it if you know what I mean? I'm working on my next post which is linked to the release of the new film - Horrible Bosses and it will be discussing my previous horrible bosses - I could write a whole book on them actually - and why I think some bosses are horrible. I look forward to your next message and your next blog update. Keep me posted.
thanks for the comment, I'm starting the second year of my MA, stuck with writing fiction, although I did some poetry at the beginning, the modules are pretty prescriptive, about writing from life and research.
As for this website, I signed up and haven't got on here properly yet to have a look. I got a load of welcome messages, but the wording was identical on each, so I wondered if they were SPAM, automatically generated? But yours mentioned something real at least, I'll have to look around. It seems a nice community for bloggers.
Thanks for visiting my page. I am loving BB so far. Though it can be a bit overwhelming. I am hoping to be a regular reviewer. I would absolutely love to get autographed books in exchange for a review! I often wonder how everyone here gets them without sounding like they just want a free book. It amazes me. I love your blog, it's very catching and classy! Great job with that!
Ellen, don't worry about me being a teacher. I only chastise my students :) I think I learned my lesson early on with my wife. And I'd be curious to know a little about what short story you need to finish that was sparked by the fact that I'm a teacher. Anyway, thanks again for stopping by my blog and I look forward to continued communication.
Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Joining a new site at first can be overwhelming, but with all the nice people who have welcomed me in, I really don't feel like a newbie! I checked out your blog, and fell in love with it! I now follow you :)
Oh no, I'm a terribly slow reader! Contemporary fiction I'm okay with, but classics tend to take longer and pre-1800 books usually take forever. I have to look up so many words, LOL. But I enjoy them nonetheless. How about you?
Ellen, thanks for your comments on my post. It's nice to know people are actually reading it (especially considering I tend to go on a bit. Brevity is not my strong suit). I've started following your blog. As a high school teacher, I liked your introductory post. I teach Freshmen, and even at that age, it sounds very similar to some of the things I hear. Look forward to future posts.
Hello Ellen! The cover for Contentment looks great, doesn't it? I'll probably get around to perusing it at some point over the next two weeks - have so much to read it gets confusing as to where I should start!
I've just checked out your blog and am now following you on GFC and on twitter. Your dogs look adorable!
Thank you so much for the welcome! Glad you stopped by my blog. Yes, I've been trying to grow it as much as possible. I'm actually quite surprised how much its grown in the last few weeks!!! Stopped by your blog - love the pups! I'm now following you (GFC and Twitter), and can't wait to see more about the little ones!
You're welcome to come chat over on the blog, twitter, wherever anytime! Sorry though, it will be mostly paranormal lol. I'm fairly new to the paranormal stuff, so its all new to me haha. :)

Already this is a prize that feels like it has become an integral part of the fiction-world’s year […]
