EEEEEEEEEEEEE is right, Richard. I second your EEEEEEE! But a few people mentioned that *le gasp* they don't have anything to be critiqued. So that's why this month's Give Backery is a little more open. It's the Two Hours of Awesomesauce giveaway. I will give you two hours of my time. Here are a few things I can do in two hours:
- Critique 10 pages of your work.
- Help you write a query letter.
- Critique a synopsis.
- Help you brainstorm your next project or get through a plot snag.
- Debate the relative merits of pirates versus ninjas.
- Send you about 50 ridiculous YouTube videos.
And the rules are simple:
Leave a comment: +1 entry
Current follower: +2 entries
New follower: +1 entry
Tweet/blog about the contest: +1 entry each
Please let me know how many entries you have total, because otherwise I might miss something, and that would suck. The contest will be open until Thursday, Feb 11 at noon EST. I'll choose the winner by random number generator and post their name on Friday.
You know you want 50 ridiculous YouTube videos. Admit it.
Comment? Check. 1 entry down.
I'm a follower so that's 2 extra?
And here's a tweet @StephanieLMcGee
I have 2 entries, one for being a new follower and one for leaving a comment!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!
I love free stuff! Two hours of your time would be great. I've got a couple different things going so my only problem would be choosing just one!
OK, so that really wasn't a comment. Sorry about that. This is uber-generous of you. I love give-backery.
Follow and ocmment 2 points. I'm not sure why it took me so long, everyone else in my blogger life follows you.
If there was a prize for best photos/videos on a blog, you'd win hands down.
I'm a +3 for this and my being a faithful follower. Thanks for the give backery!
2 hours of your time? That is the coolest contest EVAH!
But I only want to win if I can see a picture of Tom Brokaw squeeing.
lol! Love the debating topic! Pirates sing and ninjas have to be stealthy and quiet. I'm all about the pirates. *grin*
What a fun year ahead. :)
I guess I am at +3 right now. but I haven't started tweeting about your awesomeness (at least not this week, but it is only Monday)
I already know PIRATES rule, so the discussing plot/project details sounds absolutely beautiful to me. Since you're my neighbor, I'll just drive on over...oh, wait I have to win first. Okay, I'll wait until then. If I don't win, there's always the stalking option.
Okay, so 3 entries.
Two hours of awesomesauce? That IS awesome! Thanks for such great giveaways, Carrie.

So that's 3 for me so far. :-)
Love the "give backery" concept.
And, for the record, pirates beat ninjas every time. That's why there isn't a "Talk like a Ninja" Day.
And am I the only one who sees the Association of Author's Representatives acronym and thinks of pirates?
Pirates v. ninjas? Sweet. ;)
(3 total entries. I'm so lazy today.)
Loyal follower here. Can I have 1/2 a critique and 25 videos? It's just too tough to choose.
Well, if you must have a contest to give stuff away, enter my name please. I'm also already a follower (so, 3 entries :)
I have a total of 3 points (comment + old follower)
Fifty ridiculous YouTube videos? I'm totally in!
You are awesome!
Thus far I have 3 points. :) Can't wait to see the videos. ;-)
Yay for Richard Simmon's excitement and yay for give backery!
Hmm... current follower, comment, tweet... 4 points?
Oh my gosh I want to win those youtube videos!!!
You have no idea how much query help I need. My fingers are crossed for a win!
Thanks for the great giveaway!

Does anyone else wonder if Richard Simmons owns any other clothing besides tanks and short shorts? You know, like jeans?? (He would probably wear those skinny jeans that are popular right now.)
Follower and comment = 3.
I may have already taken up all the allotted time though. :0
Woo comment and current follower!
That's 3 for me!
Great idea for the contest!
