Celebrating 1,000 Followers With a Prize Package Drawing

Today, we’re going to be deviating from my usual vlog routine in order to do some celebrating. And what are we celebrating? Well, quite simply, we are celebrating you—all one thousand of you! Wordplay has just reached one thousand followers, and this milestone is the perfect opportunity for me to take a moment and thank all of you who have followed, subscribed, commented, liked, linked, and retweeted the blog. I am always humbled by your support, and I feel incredibly honored to be able to share my writing life with all of you and hopefully help you in your own journeys.

To celebrate—and since I can’t make a cake and zap you each a piece through the Internet—I’m hosting a prize drawing, with the prize of a copy of my CD Conquering Writer’s Block and Summoning Inspiration, the “10 Habits of Successful Authors” bookmark, and the winner’s choice of any of the books I have posted on my Recommended Reading page. Some of my favorites include The Anatomy of Story by John TrubyBeginnings, Middles & Ends by Nancy Kress; and Write Away by Elizabeth George. But you can take you pick among the whole lot of them. The winner will receive a hard copy of the book or the Kindle version, whichever he prefers.

In order to enter the drawing, all you gotta do is leave a comment telling me how you first discovered Wordplay—if you remember. If you don’t remember, that’s okay too. We’ll bend the rules since it’s a special occasion. If you have any suggestions for topics or features you’d like me to feature as we journey on to the next thousand followers, I love to hear them. The winner will be announced next week. Thanks again for following, everyone!

(By the way, I’m sure I’ll be throwing another party and hosting a similar drawing when we hit 1,000 fans on my Facebook page. So if you want to be a part of that, be sure to visit the link and click the Like button.)

  1. Congrats on 1000 followers. That is awesome! I discovered Word Play through twitter. Signed @teachingfriends

    I found your blog on Google Reader

  3. I don’t remember exactly how I found your blog… I think that about a year ago someone in the blogging realm linked me to one of your posts, I started poking around on the rest of your blog, and have been a follower ever since. 🙂


  4. Hey! Congratulations on hitting 1000 followers! Well, deserved imo. I can’t quite remember, but I either found you directly through the blog commenting challenge/thingy a while ago, _or_ I followed a link from someone taking part. Either way, I’m a huge fan!

  5. I found the vlog when I was searching for some writing prompts to get me back into the fiction writing game.
    Congrats on the 1,000 follower milestone….soon, you’ll be celebrating 2K.

  6. Wow, I can’t remember…probably via another site recommendation, saw the link elsewhere while traveling the writerly blogosphere. Happy 1000, woohoo! That’s astounding. 🙂

  7. You were recommended to me by Shelley Souza!
    So then I got onto your site, subscribed, got a free e-book on character building, then raved about it to all my writing warrior comrades.
    Well done to the amount of followers – you must have something wonderful going for you!
    All the best, Leigh 🙂

    Felicitations! 1,000 followers is amazing! I found your blog while searching for tips and advice to improve my craft.
    I am so glad I made it here! Definitely a blog every writer should frequent.

  9. This is an amazing blog! I think that a couple friends had been reading it and showed it to me.

  10. Twitter retweets.

    And there were several of those before I actually followed on Twitter: I like your articles but the tweets weren’t clicking for me.

    Finally the interest in the former overcame the latter. (Not trying to be a jerk, just thought yo might be interested in specifics.)

  11. I found you at Writers Unboxed.

  12. I heard about you on a post on writeStorymakers discussion board. Glad to find so much practical advice.

  13. Congratulations on 1000 followers! I think I speak for all of us when I say that you absolutely deserve it. In fact, I’m surprised you don’t have more subscribers. I came across this site about a year ago, after searching Google for ‘writing tips’. And did this site ever deliver. Thank you so much!
