Happy Anniversary!


Hard to believe it's been two years since I started this blog with Becca Puglisi! I'm on my own now as you all know, and am continually overwhelmed to have so many insightful readers. I appreciate the time you spend here with me, and love all the comments. Your thoughts, opinions and experiences make this blog truly great!

This anniversary, I'd like to hear from you. Tell me if this blog is helping your writing in the way you need it to, and if there are ways to improve! Are there any specific topics you would like to see more of in between my thesaurus entry posts? Are you finding that the thesaurus posts continue to help?

As always, I love to hear your comments and ideas, so don't be shy! :-)

Now who wants some CAKE?

You have indeed helped me in my writing, several times in the past week! I haven't a long enough history with your blog to offer suggestions, but I can tell you that I will continue to tune in and I even posted a link to your blog as one of my favorites from this past week on a recent post. It turns out this is on a lot of people's favorite blogs list already.

And I am addicted to pirateness, so your picture is awesome!

Shonna Slayton said...

Happy 2 yr! No suggestions for you...I'm a fairly new reader to your site. I think you have a fun and unique blog :)

Danyelle said...

Happy Birthday! Just keep being your very awesome self. :)

What about an thesaurus for imaginary creatures--both for fantasy and science fiction? Like water types, fire types...kinda like Pokémon. O:)

Happy Anniversary!

Keep up the good work!

Erica said...

Happy Anniversary!! Are you kidding? This blog is extremely helpful! I'm not sure what you can add to make it any better - it's great, just as it is :o)

Vijaya said...

Congratulations, Angela! When I get stuck with cliches, I come here to get unstuck. I use it as a place to let my own memories take off ... and I am able to find just the right detail.

No suggestions. Keep on doing what you're doing so well.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Happy Anniversay!

I love the thesaurus entries. When I'm done editing and back to writing Book #2 I plan to use them a whole lot!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Angela, you know I'm addicted to your blog and to every single post you write. You help me as a writer each time I hop over here. I wasn't kidding when I said I have begun a folder of your posts - that way I can keep your great ideas and wisdom handy when I'm working.

Happy anniversary, friend! :-)

Mary Witzl said...

Yes, this blog helps me. What I like more than anything is the strong examples versus the weak ones -- they really make me think.

And keep that cake away from me! (Though it looks great...)

Queenie said...

Happy Anniversary! I'm a new reader too, and find your blog useful for reference and inspiration. I've recommended it to the writers in my online short story group. I hope you get the thesaurus published eventually. Now please can I have some cake?

Niki said...

I love your blog and all your yummy words. I'm new to writing so it is a huge help. I have an award for you at my blog :o)

Bish Denham said...

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!

The only suggestion I can think of is to keep up the excellent good work. Your thesaurus is ingenious!

And, even though you might not do awards, there's one for YOU on my blog.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

I use the emotion thesaurus regularly. Wonderful blog.

Angela said...

Thank you all so much for your wonderful, encouraging words.

Danyelle, I can definitely do a post that provides links to beastiaries and farie collections already in place. I have run across literally thousands of entries for different creatures (from all different mythologies and contemporary worldbuilding), and many folks out there have done a fab job of organizing them. Linking them here would create a one-stop place to read up on your favorite fantastical creature! Thanks for the suggestion.

And thank you for the award and the linking, you guys! I bask in your awesomeness!

Yunaleska said...

Congrats Angela! Yay for cake!

It is such a beneficial tool, thank you.

Jenn said...

Happy Anniversary! I LOVE this blog and use it a lot. It really helps get my brain moving in my writing! Keep up the good work!

Karen Lange said...

Happy Anniversary! I'm a newer follower, but I have enjoyed the thesaurus posts. You're always a good stop on my blog list. :)

Happy Anniversary, Angela!
Your blog is an amazing resource!

Nita said...

This cake (hah, I meant blog) has definitely helped me. I'm terrible at descriptions, so the emotion thesaurus really helps.

MG Higgins said...

Wow, that cake looks scrumptious. I love your emotion thesaurus. Keep up the great work. And happy anniversary!

Laura said...

Congratulations!
I'm one of those people that always consults your thesaurus. Even if I don't find what I'm looking for, it inspires me, or leads me in the right direction. Great job, Angela!

Christina Farley said...

Happy Anniversary! I adore your blog. I can't write without it. :)

So don't stop! And thanks for the cake. Yum.

PJ Hoover said...

Don't change a thing! Your blog rocks the house and I would cry if you ever went off the air :)

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Angela,

Stop by my blog today if you get a chance. I have a little something for you! :-)

Catherine A. Winn said...

Congratulations! How did it help me? Your thesaurus made the language in my work richer. Thank you!

I'm new, but I'm loving and using the thesauruses (thesauri?).
Happy Anniversary.
