Choose wisely.”

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

Thank you!
