Friday Round-Up - #149
Laurel Garver, at Laurel's Leaves, gives us ideas on how to recycle all the items we cut from our manuscripts.
Have you ever re-purposed a scene or chapter cut from one of your novels or articles?
Laurel Garver, at Laurel's Leaves, goes on a crusade to stamp out apostrophe abuse.
What aspect of using the apostrophe trips you up, if any?
Ha! It looks like today is Laurel Garver Day. I LOVE her blog. :)
*HOT* Fellow blogger, Kelly Moran, lost her blog along with her Followers and interviews. She's up and running, but needs her Followers to hit the Follower button again. Please take a few minutes to go over to her blog and lend your support. http://kellymoranauthor.blogspot.com/ Thanks!
Have a blessed weekend!

Well, I don't struggle with apostrophes; I get paid to know where to put 'em in my "day job." :) But they can really goof things up if they're misplaced.
Hope things are falling into place for you, dear encourager.
you're such a sweetheart! Hugs for the weekend! :) :)
Both of Laurel's articles were very good. I have actually taken parts from my writings and used them in different ways. Her ideas about short stories were great.
I need that lesson on apostrophes. It was very helpful.
Thanks for the huge linky-love, Susan! I hope your readers will also participate in today's poll about success. I'm eager to know what typical writerly aspirations are.
Thanks again for a great Friday Round-up Susan, somehow you always send us to the nicest places :)
Hi Rhonda -
They sure can make a sentence confusing if they're placed in the wrong spot. :)
Have a great weekend!
Hi Jaime -
You're making me blush. :)
Hi Nancy -
I'm glad the articles helped you. Have a great weekend!
Hi Laurel -
My pleasure. :)
Hi Marja -
There are many awesome bloggers out there. Laurel does a great job and always has something I can use in my writing.
Thanks for the links, Susan! Great information.
Hi Heather -
Have a wonderful weekend!
Oh my, a lost blog? That would be awful! Just recently I ordered books for each of my 3+ years of blogging in order to capture content in print. I'm thinking of doing a backup on the computer as well.
Apostrophes? Only on occasion do I labor over whether to use them as a possessive or plural tool. I'm rather fond of contractions, so they appear all over my life.
Hi, Suze. I see you hit 200 followers--congratulations!!! I have 7 to go, then I'm hosting a party with PRIZES!!!!
I struggle with apostrophes on certain words that are posessives. I need to check out Laurel's post. Thanks for the link.
I will go over to Kelly's now.
Hi Kathleen -
Oh, I'd love to get my blog put in book form someday. What a treasure to have for your family!
Like you, contractions are part of my writing and speech. Without them, I think dialogue sounds stiff and unnatural.
Hi Jen -
Yes, the 200 Follower mark was set today! I'll be doing something special as well.
Hi Terri -
Thanks! I know Kelly will appreciate the the assistance.
My daughter admonished me to copy all my posts this year after she did my book last year. Sadly, I haven't.
Heading out to check out your links.
Hi Sandra -
I need to back-up my work also. The days go by so quickly that I forget.
