Thing you can do in the blogosphere today

Here are just a few things you can do in the blogosphere today.

Did you know that it's non-fiction Monday? Indeed. If you have posted about a non-fiction children's book, head on over to the Booklist Bookends Blog and add your link to the round-up. For those who love non-fiction there are a ton of great links in this week's round-up.

If you don't know what non-fiction Monday is all about, mosy over to A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy and see what Liz Burns has to say about how this weekly event came into being.

And Monday's are when Tricia posts her Poetry Stretch, a challenge to write a poem in a particular style. This week it's Haiku Riddles.

And lastly, I'm hosting the September Carnival of Children's Literature. I didn't come up with a theme so please, send me your favorite post from the month and I'll develop something after I get the entries. Deadline is this Friday. I'm hoping for lots of entries to counter the ridiculous amounts of spammy stuff that has come through via the carnival sign-up page. You can submit via the Carnival page .

I'm hoping to have a big announcement (not of the "I sold a book" kind) to make any day now.

Thanks for reminding me about Tricia's Poetry Stretch. That is always fun and I sometimes am so buried in prose that I forget.

Thinking about the September theme.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
