A Friend to Follow

A quick plug for my friend, the lovely and talented, Donna Hosie. If you’re not following her blog, Musings of A Penniless Writer you’re missing an up and coming YA writer who has more drive and determination than anyone I know.

When I’m feeling lazy, I read one of her posts in which she gets an idea for a plot and writes an 80,000 word novel in 3 months or changes her whole novel from third to first point of view. And that’s while she works full-time, raises her kids, tends to her garden or yard or whatever you like to call that big grassy space surrounding your house. Oh, and she’s probably planning her next trip to Hobbit Country as well. Whips me into shape in no time, she does!

No challenge is too daunting for my supportive, hard-working friend and I know it’s only a matter of time before an agent snatches her up. She’s 1 follower away from reaching 200. So what are you waiting for?

She lives on the Aussie side of the world so (hopefully) she’s sleeping right now. Unless she decided to get up early to revise her ms. Wouldn’t it be great if she woke to see 200 followers? You could be the one!
Now shoo! Get going!


  1. I'm afraid I already follow her--afraid, because I wish I could help push up the count to 200! :)

  2. I love Donna. She must be a nerdfighter because awesomeness is in her genes.

  3. OMG - I think I am going to cry. In fact I am - what a wuss I am.

    I've just woken up and I've gone over the 200 mark - and then I read this post and people on twitter urging people to follow me.


    What an amazing friend you are, Suzie.

    *collapses in an emotional heap*

  4. I'm already a follower of "Super Donna" and now following you too, sorry it took so long :-D

  5. I'm already a Donna follower. :) She is pretty darn awesome.


  6. Wow, I feel like a slack writer now...

  7. Impressive. I followed her. Thanks for the heads up. =D
