ICYMI: Emotional MidPoints, Character Name Tricks, + Princess Bride Party!

Hello! We are still here and blogging! Alas, Jetpack was giving us trouble and not sending emails to our lovely subscribers. So we thought we’d better recap the last two weeks. First…

princess-bride-linkup-party

We’re hosting a Princess Bride Linkup Party! It’s next weekend! Why? Because FUN! And also on September 25th, three decades less a year ago, The Princess Bride opened in theatres, and we felt like celebrating that. So if you want to share your thoughts, feelings or critiques on the book and/or film, write a post (or share one you’ve already written) and join our linkup. For more information and blogging ideas, check out our #PrincessBrideParty FAQ page.

And while Jetpack was being buggy, we published these two posts:
