Really, it WAS fun. And weirdly refreshing not to be a slave to my phone for a few days. And the rain only pounded the tent at night. Plus - we went tubing and fishing and we were able to see a group of surveyors capture one of these guys and tag him.

She is so amazingly sweet and fabulous!) tagged me in a 7x7 meme (one in which I superlatize* my posts from the past years) and so I’m sharing with (and tagging) YOU.
Most Beautiful Piece
Umm…I think the title captures it.
Most Helpful Piece
Posted as I was writing my own query. I didn’t realize it would be helpful, but the feedback told me it was.
Most Popular Piece
In response to an RTW, I discuss cringe-worthy words. Aside from my giveaways and contest entries, this one garnered the most comments.
Most Controversial Piece
In which I discover the fun in writing from a guy’s POV. I will always cherish this particular piece. ALWAYS.
Most Surprisingly Successful Piece
I really liked this post. I’m happy other people did too.
Most Underrated Piece
The Meme in which I share words from my WIP. I didn’t really want to share because I am SO scared of feedback on my WIP and was so glad L-Day for the A-Z blogfest fell on a Saturday because who blogs on Saturday? But then, very few people blogged on Saturday. And the part of me that felt relieved also felt kind of well, sad.
Most Pride-Worthy Piece
In which I write a 300-word review of Ellen Hopkin’s Perfect. In free verse. And…AND Ellen Hopkins stopped by, read it, and commented on it!
So, there you have it. Seven blogs to keep you entertained while I try to finish up my rewrite! Thanks Elodie for the tag! And don't forget to enter my giveaway! All you have to do is COMMENT!
*superlatize IS a word. Well, it is NOW.
