Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?

I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.

The Deja Vu Blogfest



On December 16th, 2011, a blogfest was held where participants re-posted their favorite blog offering, or one that never received the exposure it should have.  On that day the blogosphere was chock full of past writing brilliance!  Encouragement, enlightenment, knowledge, bared souls, stimulation, hilarity, insecurities, success stories!  All on display…the very same day…like no other time before.

The list of links on MR. LINKY below point directly to the post for that day so that anyone who missed the blogfest can still peruse some really dynamite blog posts.  Enjoy!

  1. In! I have two posts that I can't decide between. Great idea to recycle old ones :)

  2. I'll do it...but can I wait to post the blog with the badge and everything until tomorrow or later this evening? I'm swamped at work right now...I can do it tonight at home, though.

  13. Sounds cool, guy. Except I can't think of any old posts I'd want to repost. I'll keep your page up. Let me think about this. It's a really good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm in. How can I resist posting something I've already written. I've got many early posts that probably have been read by only a few people.

  15. I'm in! But, DL (HELP!) I signed up twice in error. How do I deactivate the second entry? Working my way through getting the badge on my site next.

  16. Not sure how I ended up here, but I'm here and I posted one of my favorites! I hope you enjoy it too!

  17. This is a great idea. I have post from back when I only had a handful of followers as well that I often considered re-posting and now I have the perfect opportunity plus I will get to read the best of so many others as well. Brilliant idea.

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is a great idea - this should make for a great few days of blog surfing.

  19. I experimented putting the graphic with a link in the sidebar of my blog, but for some reason it kept messing up the formatting of the rest of the blog so I had to remove it. I will post an article about the blogfest tomorrow instead. I hope that's okay.

    This is a great opportunity to dig up a post I wrote before followers started showing up and taking an interest in what goes on over here at PEARSON REPORT.

    Cheers, Jenny

  35. I've added the Blogging from A to Z blog in #108. We're doing some reposts for several weeks around the time of Deja Vu so this is a natural blogfest for us to be in. On 12/16 Stephen Tremps Reflections post will be reprinted.

  38. OK,I signed up and I hope I won't be sorry. Not sure what I would want to recycle, but I'm sure I'll find something.

    Either I'm the most challenged blogger out there or technology hates me. Either way, I can't find the subscribe button on Mr.Linky. Help, please.i'm registered,but then...

  48. What a great idea! This will be fun. Now I'll have to spend tonight looking through old posts -- or better yet, let my husband decide for me since he always knows better anyway. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great idea! But sticking to one post could be a bit of a challenge ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dropping in to say hello. Came by way of Alex J. I appreciate it very much, when people that have tasted success, remain planted and help the less successful. I will be looking into a few of the other entries, as I am always up for a good read. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just stopping by to say hello! I think I double posted. Sorry! I couldn't find where I linked up right away.

  59. Just found out about this today and think it's a great idea. I resurrected a post from 2007!

    Thanks!

  60. I've been enjoying the fest, but then realized I'd totally forgotten to become a follower of your blog! Thanks for creating this cool opportunity to meet other writers!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love blogfests. I usually participate as soon as I find out there's one going on. I found out about yours through Carol Kilgore at Under the Tiki Hut ;) However, I think we're already following each other.
    Cheers!

  62. Great! My first blogfest! I'm excited and eager!
    I found this one out through my great friend and writer Claudia Del Balso.
    Cheers!

  64. Talk about missing a great blog post! I missed this so now it's actually December 17th! But, since it's only 1:49 AM on December 17th and it's still December 16th in California and Hawaii (but, frankly, I don't even know what day it is in New Guinea), I'm going to go ahead and dig up an oldie (no, not Grandma). Thanks!
