Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- June 11, 2012

Song of the Day: Reach for the Stars by S Club 7

   Hello all! How was the weekend? I have to confess that I barely got anything done. I did get some much needed R & R. I also came to the conclusion that my blog has been lacking posts on the craft of writing lately. I have been consistent with my posts regarding opportunities for other writers, but I haven't been blogging on writing at all. I've been so busy lately that I've sort of neglected my blog. I'll have to fix that. In the coming weeks I'm going to try and have at least one other post other than my writing opportunities. In the meantime, check out what's here this Monday.
