I used to hate writers who shamelessly self-promoted.  I grew weary of their advertising, most of them wrote books I'd never read, had posts I seldom agreed with - made little sense and had little pride.

Now I know their plight.

Writing is a thankless job with the most internal rewards I can ever imagine.  Most of us earn meager livings as technical writers or copy editors; the greatest joy is sometimes carried over into daily expressions on our blogs, my own is this one - Brazen Princess.

Today is the last day of KCRA's A-LIST, a local area competition that is based on viewer response.  My own blog, Brazen Princess, at this writing, is in the top ten, but with only one day left of voting, I am hoping to get out the vote and make it into the all-important top-5. With a top-5 rating, I am "seen" - or noticed.  I have told myself that this means I am a good writer- the truth is that my blog (at this writing) is sandwiched between Peek and Ponder (a beauty blog that sings the praises of hair extensions and beauty products) and the Lipstick Giraffe (another beauty blog).  In other words, literary blogs (I might flatter myself) are giving way to the commercial self-promoters who do it better than I do!!  


Can I ask you to vote for me?  It's free (albeit a bit of a hassle) here's the link:


I sign in with my twitter account, which is the easiest way to do this, but you can create a KCRA account and then delete it later...

If you previously voted – thank you! Guess what. You are able to vote more than once! :) You’ll just need to go to the main Best Local Blogger page. Once there, hover over the tile for Brazen Princess and click the yellow VOTE button!

Thank you!!!

Gerald!!  Thank you!!  By the way, you don't have to worry about age when you're a writer, right?  Also, I just saw that my profile still says South Africa, even though I've been "home" for two years...  oops!!  Thanks again, pal!!

Great! I send a stack of


Black & White NOTES.

I hope the scribble in no

too illegible. Edit? Ed had

a part last Eve. O `L ' ` 1 '

Michele - not 2- `L ' was

there. I wasn't Invited. O?

It would be way too Erotic.

The Feast would cause bad

Nausea. It best to eat garlic

Shoots alone in attic or the

Outhouse than to dine with

unsavory critter and barf up

Good Grub. Now? Maybe Ya

get a Pulitzer? A Jug of wine?

I send a jug of honey Mead.
