I was strollin’ through the many halls of Bloglandia this evening (I’m a night owl; it’s actually 6:45 AM) an’ I came across a whole new place to play. Well, to be really honest, I ventured over to the Scriptures 4 Kids site to have a look-see. I like goin’ there. Look over there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Yeah, there. See that picture with the kid readin’ the Scriptures? That’s where I ventured to. Wanna’ know why? On accounta’ I’m an editor on that site. Cool Beans, eh?
Now, where was I? Oh, yeah; strollin’ through the halls of Bloglandia. Anyway, when I checked in at the Scriptures 4 Kids site I saw several cool links, so I decided to check ’em out. One of ’em was Green. Jello With. Carrots. That’s a cool site. An’ guess what? They had links on their site, too. An’ one ‘uh the links was The Barrel. Also a very cool site. I was even able to figure out how to do a Blog Hop. How cool is that?
What I was thinkin’ is that if you all join me in this Blog Hop (we can fly together in the Little Red Wagon) we could help Lenny get 250 Followers by Christmas. If this is your first time here, maybe you haven’t met Lenny. Lenny is eleven years old and a great blogger an’ writer. He is also an awesome critique partner. He critiqued my picture book an’ did such a great job on it that I wanna’ help him get 250 Followers before Christmas day. I hope you will jump in an’ stroll on over to Lenny’s World. I know you’ll enjoy it. Lenny is an amazing guy an’ I’m glad Sharon from Random Thoughts introduced us. I hope you will all join in the Blog Hop an’ also help Lenny.
Squeeee! My first Blog Hop!
Until the next time, keep a hug on.
Now, here’s why I’m telling you about Mr. Lenny Lee. He did such a fine job of critiquing Sharon’s book that, after fighting a major Shy Attack, I finally worked up the nerve to ask him if he would consder critiquing my picture book, Tangles of Fun. Lemme’ tell you, I fretted so much over what his reaction would be. You see, Lenny is among the greats. Knowing what an amazing writer he is, I was sure that he was too busy to help me. But I was wrong. In fact, Lenny was very gracious in accepting my request.
Naturally, after sending him my story (am I the only one who feels that my baby has left the nest when it leaves my possession?), I again began to fret. When I received Lenny’s reply, I had drug my trusty computer into the closet an’ the ‘puter an’ I were sharing a moment, you might say. I do not handle stress an’ fretting very well. *grin*
I needn’t have worried, though. Lenny was very thorough an’ very kind in his critique. I won’t include alla’ Lenny’s comments, but lemme’ share with you summa’ the things he said:
I am working on my book, using Lenny’s suggestions. He’s right; trying to rhyme the words is very difficult. The thing is, the idea of rhyming it is a really good idea, so I’ll keep working at it.
Now, this is where you come in. If you’re still reading, it’s because you know what a great guy Lenny is. If I could, I would send Lenny buckets an’ buckets of books an’ fun things. As I’m sure alla’ you unnerstan’, though, many things contribute to my inability to shower Lenny with the gifts he so much deserves. So I’d like to ask your help.
Today is December 5th. We have jus’ 20 day’s ’til Christmas. With your help, I think we can spread the word about what a great writer an’ critique partner Lenny Lee is. There are lotsa’ people who haven’t met Lenny, yet an’ I’d like to introduce him to as many people in the blogging world as I can. Will you help me? If you think it would help, you are welcome to link to this post on your blog or in your comments. If you don’t wanna’ do that, please tell as many people as you can about Lenny’s awesome blog.
