Buccaneer Blogfest: Week One, Day One


Today kicks off the month long Buccaneer Blogfest hosted by Sharon Bayliss and Courtney Young.
Here's a quick reminder of the rules, for those of you who don't know.

1)Add your blog link to the linky below
2) Throughout the fest, visit the other blogs as much as you can and comment.
3) Post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with the prompt of the day
4) Re-post the Linky & Buccaneer banner on your own blog to show your pirate pride and promote the blog fest
5) Finally…Have Fun!  

Week one is introduction week, and I'm starting off with the day one prompt, an Introduction: Tell us a little bit about you and your blog. Post the sign up linky for this blogfest in your post. Include your other social media links so we can follow.
  
Okay, to start this blogfest off, and introduce myself to newcomers finding my blog via the fest, Hello I'm Clare. I'm a twenty-nine year-old, aspiring writer from the West Midlands of England. I'm currently working on my first novel – a new adult contemporary fantasy called Sibylline Nights (you can find the synopsis here) - and I use this blog as a way to connect with, and make friends with, other writers in all stages of the writing/ publication process.

I can also be found in the following places: Facebook | Facebook Page | Twitter | Tumblr 



Thanks for joining me on the blogfest, and please hop along to the other blogs that have signed up, a list of which can be found here:

    2. I guess that's where the phrase, "Don't get your knickers in a knot" comes from. Hehe!
