Do the Write Thing for Nashville

I am slightly addicted to twitter.  My husband says heavily addicted but that's not the point of this post.  Twitter is great for slightly shy people like me.  You can watch things go on and pop in every now and then.

I've watched an amazing thing unfold.  Myra McEntire, Amanda Morgan and Victoria Schwab have done something so much bigger than themselves. I've known Myra through twitter and I know she's a giving and caring person.  I'll assume that Amanda and Victoria are also by proxy. They banded together to put on an bookish auction to raise money for Middle Tennessee flood victims. 

It's taken on a life of it's own. The prizes are amazing.  The bids are huge.  It's just awesome.

I haven't won a thing but I've loved it. The bid are so, so high. It's wonderful.

I'll tell you what.  I've been very effected by this.  By the transparency of the organizers.  The generousity of the donors.  The outrageous bidders.

I'm still a wanna be in the publishing world.  But it doesn't seem as scary anymore.

And all for a great cause.

Now, go bid.
