Inkpot Files Update for February

This is my 500th post! I feel I should be celebrating with fireworks and whistles and a marching band. Prizes too (maybe for my 1000th).
Anywhoo, as I am slowly working my way back to normal posting I thought I would give you a hint at some of the things I have planned for the Inkpot Files over the coming month (and a short month it is too):-

Things to look out for in the up coming weeks

1. More posts on the blog improvement program.
I'm already behind on my last task, which was brainstorming about blog improvement. I'll post soon about what brainstorming techniques I used and what the results were.

2. An Author of the Month.
I'm hoping to make this a regular to the blog. The inaugural Author of the Month will be Spencer L Casey. I'll post a review of his new book 'Dalia's Fire' in the next week or so and also an interview with the author, which is really interesting and I know you will like it.

3. The Inkpot Challenge
I haven't finalised the details of this yet, but I am planning on instituting a Friday Challenge where I either challenge myself or one of your guys (or you can challenge me) to do something over the weekend and then report on it the next week.
Anyway, these are just some of the things to expect on the Inkpot Files in February. If you have anything you would like to see, make sure you tell me in the comments!

I'm glad you're back to posting. I've missed you a bit. I also want to hear all about your experience querying agents! How did you go about it?

Sounds great - I love the vblogging and the Sunday toon and the general chit chat. Don't know if I would be up to a CHallenge!!!

Hoo-rah! Happy 500th post!

I'll happily challenge you to a poem writing contest, if we can agree on a fixed form you like. And we could have a 3rd party give us a theme or something...

Thanks Anon, it is good to hear what you like. Of course you would be up to a challenge!

Thanks Dude, glad to know you'll be around for the next 500 posts. :)

Thanks Nisha. I must do something special for my 1000th post. I'm glad you like the idea of an author of the month. I'm excited about it and interested to see how it goes.

Thanks Mal. Poetry challenge - you are on! Email me so we can hash out the details. I think I might make it my first challenge for next week. Anyone want to volunteer a theme?
