Many of you say you enjoy reading about my travels. Well, I thought I would tell you about IGOUGO.com. I was an early contributor to this site, and all of my travels are documented here through journals. (Search for guide name: Carmen)
The reason I bring this up: I'm on a shameless campaign. You see, I was nominated for "Journal of the Year" for what I wrote about my trip to Sydney. You can go and vote for me, (scroll down about half way) but I will warn you that you have to sign up and log in to vote. Now, it costs you nothing, and should you be going to St. Lucia for your honeymoon or something (like Funny Amy), you can look up your destination and read about what others have to say on where to stay, etc.
On another writing note, for those of you aspiring novelists, November is National Novel Writing Month. Visit NaNoWriMo to sign up to write your novel in a month. I participated last year and finished my novel, which I'm now shopping around to agents. I don't think I'll start from scratch this year, because I don't have any new ideas, but I am going to make my own pledge to finish my second book (you can't enter a manuscript that you've already started) and put some serious editing time into my first book for round two of agent letters.
