Critique Partner 2.0 Kickoff! (with Vlogging!)

Sweet readers, the past three weeks have been a whirlwind for several reasons which may or may not turn out to be immediately relevant to this blog. (*raises eyebrows*)

What IS relevant is that I had a FABULOUS time being a member of Team Cupid in The Writer's Voice contest this week! The support and love of the entire Writer's Voice community was INCREDIBLE.

It made me wish I could spend more time with you. Yes, ALL of you. 

I've been a longtime viewer of John and Hank Green's Brotherhood 2.0 series (and subsequent related videos) on YouTube. It made me think that we should do something like that with all our writing buddies - a conversation via video, to make our interactions even more personal than they are now. (but not too personal, I mean my goodness, everyone should have a chance to do their makeup.)

All my critique partners (except Megan) shot back with reasons they "can't vlog."
Thus, the first episode of "CPs 2.0" was born. Enjoy!



(a bunch of my writing buddies jumped on the bandwagon! So you get to see EVEN MORE! Enjoy!)

  1. Bahah! Um, are you, like, TRYING to make me obsessed with you?? Because it's working. This was awesome! And I totally think your CPs should join you. More vlogs!

    Also, Penny is pretty much ridiculously adorable. That is all.

    1. RIGHT??? Although I'm hearing Twitter feedback that that's not the case...to that I plug my ears and sing a song until those people STOP TALKING.

  3. OMG This is AWESOME. I love your first vlog, and yeah, you are totally brave to vlog with a newborn (I'm impressed you didn't have to change your shirt halfway through the vlog, newborns...).

  12. Hey...LOVE this! We just posted about vlogging, funnily enough. We might not be CP's but we can be bud-D's. Vlog On, friends!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks for making me smile and laugh as I sit in my office and pretend to be grossly involved in my work...doing "internet research" has never been so fun! Vlog on!

    Oh, and my reason for never doing a Vlog is much more practical...I don't think I have a camera on my computer and/or laptop...and if I do, I obviously don't know how to use it.

  16. So I'm a bit late on this one but I loved the part about accents! Because yes, I have a different (but clear) accent. You look good, Leigh and your CPs too!
