HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

MusesPat Rice here:
Ha, thought I’d be the one to use the giggly cartoon graphics, didn’t you! You’re right, but I thought after all that erudite musing yesterday, it would be appropriate to include the Muses in our celebration.

Now I get to be giggly….  Ddanceladiesma136720850019_2

And dance a jig.

Here’s to an entire year of great blogs, old friends, and new!  Happy anniversary everyone, and thanks for being here!

Why don’t you let us know what your favorite blogs have been?

100 thoughts on “HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!”

  1. That’s such a hard question. I have really enjoyed the historical ones focused on a narrow topic that I didn’t know much about. I’ve also enjoyed the ones when we’ve discussed our favorite books, heroines, heroes etc.
    I’ll have to think about it some more to come up with one.

  6. I don’t have a particular favorite, but I’ve really enjoyed the interviews – learning about the Wench writing processes and meeting the Honorary Wenches. Several of the Honorary Wenches were new to me, and I might not’ve tried them if I hadn’t been able to listen to their “voices” in the interviews. I appreciate the Wenches’ reading endorsements. They’re supercharged “if you like” lists. πŸ™‚
    Actually, I love this blog for lots of reasons. It’s one of the few that I read regularly, and the only one where I comment. I’m really quite shy (if I met a Wench in person, I’d be struck dumb), and I’ve astonished myself with how much I’ve interacted at WordWenches. The main attraction for me, besides the convergence of favorite authors, is the informative posts. I usually learn something, and I’m always entertained.

  16. I couldn’t choose a favorite, but I can say that I do somewhat prefer ones about words, or publishing, or what people like to read, and the discussions of various bits of historical fact are always enlightening. I haven’t been following the blog for the entire year, sadly, so I don’t know if you ever get into the pains and pleasures of the writing process; that would really get my attention. But hey, it’s all good!

  26. Happy Anniversary! πŸ™‚ Yep, I was also going to put as my favorites, something like. . . I think it was St. George’s Day (I think! LOL), when you focus on one event through different times, or one time and all. . . oh heck, you know what I mean, right? LOL

  31. One of these days I’m going to meet this mandelli person—Pat Rice here. I’m totally hyped that we’ve been able to introduce readers to some of our favorite books and authors. It’s tough for us to know what people want to hear about, and while we’re always ready to gripe about writing process, “G” it doesn’t always seem apropos. But I can assure you, we’ll have more of everything in the year to come!

  36. So many favorites, how could I choose?
    However. . .I must say I like the blogs where Wenches take reader questions and riff on them. (And it’s MAGICAL to get a signed book from one of the Wenches in the mail.)
    It has been a delight to “virtually” meet all of you, AND–it has also been delightful to “virtually” meet all the wenchLINGS who gather here day after day to comment, commiserate and share ideas. What a great circle of “sisters,” and how I would love to meet all of you! Please know that any wenchling who ever comes to visit Portland has a seat at my table and a place in my spare room.
    You have all a)enriched my life, b)deepened my appreciation for the genre, its writers, and its fans, and c)helped to grow my library by suggesting Great Book Titles. Thank you and Happy Anniversary!

  46. You Wenches are fantastic, of course. And the greatest gift I’ve received from this blog is being turned on to Honorary Wenches such as Shana Abe’ and Barbara Samuel.
    Oh, and the Cabbage Patch Kid updates, can’t forget about them. I did wonder why they can’t appear naked? Don’t they arrive in the Cabbage Patch that way? Okay, I’ll be good now.
    Thanks, you gals!!!

  51. All of my favorite blogs and bulletin boards have some quality that makes them distinctive, and I think wisdom and knowledge are the qualities I associate with Word Wenches. I feel privileged to have learned so much from you this year. Whether it is whimsical lore, little known history, sage writing advice, or introductions to new writers, I always take something away from my visits here that makes me glad I joined the community.
    Happy Anniversary, Wenches! Thanks for a wonderful year.

  56. Can I say all of them? πŸ™‚ It’s always fun to wake up with the Wenches, and the Wenchlings are pretty interesting, too. I especially love the illustrations you all pick for your blogs, and have bookmarked many of the sites you’ve recommended to help me with my writing…and my living. Happy Anniversary!

  61. Thanks for joining in our celebration. It’s been great to discover that talking about what interests us — mostly history geek stuff — is welcomed. πŸ™‚
    As for the Cabbage Patch Kids, Jane, sure they came into the cabbage patch naked, but Charlie at least is 25 years old….
    Mind you, considering 25 year olds of a wilder sort, perhaps he wouldn’t mind. But there is a certain… er… lack.
    Never mind, I’ll be good and he won’t come after me with the Bugzooka he’s currently armed with.

    As for the Cabbage Patch Kids, Jane, sure they came into the cabbage patch naked, but Charlie at least is 25 years old….
    Mind you, considering 25 year olds of a wilder sort, perhaps he wouldn’t mind. But there is a certain… er… lack.
    Never mind, I’ll be good and he won’t come after me with the Bugzooka he’s currently armed with.

  64. Thanks for joining in our celebration. It’s been great to discover that talking about what interests us — mostly history geek stuff — is welcomed. πŸ™‚

  66. Happy Anniversary, Wenches!
    No particular favorites (except all of you authors, of course). I like reading about the historical triva and customs, the corsets, etc., and any info on future stories I might hear about hear first not yet on your sites, or a peek at a coming cover.

  71. You Wenches have taught me so much and made me truly appreciate the inclusion of accurate historical details in my readings and writings.
    Like Maggie, I want to say I’ve loved all the posts here since I started posting/lurking/posting last fall.
    However, my top ones have been on questions from Wenchlings about writing and the writing life.

  76. Happy Anniversary Word Wenches! I love this blog. It’s the only one I post at.
    My favorite posts… Pat Rice’s one on POV that starts “Professor Pat padded to the podium…” I didn’t fully understand the power of POV until that post. Another is MJP’s “Is that a phaser in your pocket…” That’s when I learned it was Okay to be a Romance Reader and a Trekie. Susan/Miranda’s post on the cover of DUCHASS. I’ve never looked at art the same way again. Jo’s post on flying into the mist helped me to accept my writing style. And who can forget Edith’s post on global warming.
    Thank you Wenches and wenchlings for keeping me company when I’m on the road, for encouraging me when I stuck in my MIP and for making me smile.
    Nina, a.k.a. the littlest wenchling.

  86. Hi Pat!! Happy Anniversary!
    I like mostly the historical blogs! They’d be authors or even just blogs on victorian and regency. I’m trying to remember to save links now but there’s a blog with UK with I believe Nicole Cornick, Lynne Connolly and Melinda Hammond (not sure of first name), but thats one I enjoy. I enjoy the historical data over there. Same with here. And the rest I’m learning from reading here πŸ™‚ Otherwise its the publisher ones so I can find out about the releases πŸ™‚
