Creative Carnival – September 2008
Welcome to the September 2008 Creative Carnival edition!
What is this? It’s a chance to compile some great articles around the blog-o-sphere showcasing all sorts of writing. If you need to know more, or would like to submit an article for the next Creative Carnival, read this.
So, without further ado, pass the bagels and sit a spell, there’s lots of interesting reading just a click away.
Steve Osborne presents Find Your Creativity – Go on an Entertainment Fast posted at TheWritersBag.com, saying, “Steve Osborne, author of “Writing Tips for the Real World,” is a professional freelance writer and writing instructor with over 20 years of experience.”
Allison Nazarian presents What is SEO copywriting? posted at Allison Nazarian, saying, “SEO copywriting can increase your business visibility. SEO is a way to increase the chances of your website, article or blog post being among the first results for web searches (on search engines like Google or Yahoo!) on your topic. You optimize your copywriting for the web to help readers find it.”
Kathleen Gage presents Never enough time – or is there? posted at Daily Awareness, saying, “How many people live in the space of frustration? The fact is, there is not enough time to do all we think we must do, want to do or dream of doing. There is just too much to do, calls to make, people to see. One of the few things we truly possess is time. There is only so much you can do and only so many roles you can play. How we choose to use the here and now is a personal and a powerful choice. Choose wisely.”
Nicholas Powiull presents How to Attract Money into Your Life & Get into the Mind-Set of Abundance (My Personal Experience): by Nicholas Powiull posted at Conscious Flex, saying, “My personal experience of a creative and accurate way to look at money in order to attract it. A MUST READ!”
WordPress Hacker presents Auto Create Navigation Tabs for New WordPress Pages posted at WordPress Hacker, saying, “In this article I explain how you can setup your blog to automatically create main navigation links/tabs when new pages are published by using custom fields to mark those pages you want to appear in the navigation menu.”
Byteful Project presents Ode to the Travelling Soul posted at Byteful Blog, saying, “What started out as a poem for all travellers was transformed into the story of a wandering soul and his journey to the sublime. Sometimes I wonder if I didn’t actually write this, that perhaps I was just a channel for it.”
Writers Coin presents Poetry is Cool. Who Knew? posted at The Writer’s Coin, saying, “This is a post about how poetry can really be fulfilling to people who think it’s “boring” or “lame.” That’s what I thought and I’m a writer — until I mistakenly took a poetry class.”
JennH presents The Birth Announcement posted at Mixed Metaphor.net, saying, “fictional short story based upon a writing prompt from A Thousand Words about a woman who is confronted with the remnants of her past — and evaluates the choices she made.”
Aaron Powell presents Karaoke Quintessence: Chapter 1: Juju posted at Aaron Ross Powell, saying, “The first chapter of a new serial occult crime novel from the author of “The Hole.” This chapter introduces one of the novel’s heroes, Jimmy Pete, a professional karaoke singer with more than a little mojo on his side.”

Patricia Twitchell presents The Adventures of Penny Pincher: Penny Pincher Learns A Secret posted at Just Bears and Stuff, saying, “The Adventures of Penny Pincher. Join Penny Pincher teddy bear as he learns a secret about ants in winter. Find out what it is. Great story for children.”
CG Walters presents Serialization of Sacred Vow: Katerina posted at Into the Mist, saying, “Sacred Vow lures the reader into considering an experience where our ‘self’ definition might extend far beyond the individualistic awareness.”
Karen presents Fiction: Sometimes, There Isn’t a Choice posted at Write From Karen saying, “This piece was prompted by a stranger than fiction news headline.”
This concludes the September 2008 edition of the Creative Carnival. THANK YOU for submitting your links! If you would like to see your work showcased in the October 2008 edition, please submit your links here. (Please, one link per blog. If you submit more than one link per blog, I will only use the first link submitted.)
If you submitted your link and don’t see it here, that probably means I received it after the deadline.
Thanks for visiting the carnival participants and don’t forget to check back October 11th for the next Creative Carnival.
Please note: We’ll be handling the November Creative Carnival a little differently.
On November 8, 15, 22, and 29, we’ll be posting Carnivals on Write Anything, for NaNoWriMo participants ONLY. If you plan on participating in NaNoWriMo, then you’re invited to submit a bit of your NaNoWriMo project to showcase here on Write Anything every Saturday (except for the 1st). I’ll post where to submit your links in October’s Creative Carnival post.
However, for those NOT participating in NaNoWriMo (or who are but want to do this anyway), there will be a regular Creative Carnival hosted by … someone else. So, if you’re interested in hosting the November Creative Carnival, please contact Karen at writestuffwriters AT yahoo DOT com. The regular November Creative Carnival will be November 15th. If we have more than one blogger interested in hosting the November CC, then I’ll randomly pick a host from random.org.
