Only FOUR days left!!

Thursday, April 23, 2009

There are only *four* days left to enter the Out Of This World Contest--where you could win a star, free books, and more--so send a picture of that receipt for Something, Maybe to elizabethscottcontest@gmail.com so you can get in on all the prizes!!

In other news, is this year's allergy season the worst ever or what? I'm taking double all my allergy medication and I'm still getting the whole itchy eyes/coughing/general allergy misery if I got outside for more than five minutes. I was out the other night and I ended up having to take a Benadryl just because I manged to inhale so much freaking pollen that I could feel my old and hated friend, Mr. Hive, coming out to play.

Before I shuffle off to sniffle (ha!) I've got some links to share:

Author Kurtis Scaletta has created a hilarious Amazon.com sales rank to bookstore clerk translator

Agent Nathan Bransford wants to know where you write--as you might expect, loads of comments, and it's really fascinating to see where people like to write (the tub! at work! (I totally did that) bookstores! (I could never ever do that--I would end up buying books and not writing at all))

Author Kathleen Duey is writing a novel, Russet, on Twitter, which I think is an amazing idea. And for people like me, who only check out twitter once in a while, she's putting every tweet up here--it really is worth checking out, not just to see what can be done with 140 characters, but because it's an addicting read. I know I'll be checking every day to see what's been posted.

Awww E, I feel your pain. I have serious allergy issues too and it's not good, for your state of mind, breathing and general attrativeness. (Though I would find it disturbing to know that a guy found a runny nose and glistening eyes attractive.)

Sending you some positive vibes, get better soon. Allergies be gone!

I may have to check out those Tweets. I don't really like Twitter though. I hope your allergies get better soon.

The thing that helps my allergies is a teaspoon of honey everyday. It has to be honey produced from your area. The bees pollenate the same things that make you sneeze and eating the honey helps you to grow immune to them.
